Best retirement communities

Best retirement communities

With approximately 4 million new American retirees per year, and twice the amount that are actually starting to consider it, it is important to know your living arrangements, especially because your income will be less.

Retirement communities
might be one of the best options since you pay a fixed price (cheaper than keeping your own house).

Retirment communities not only offer accessible and economic facilities, but also other kinds of benefits, such as recreational and cultural activities, education opportunities, or even the chance to volunteer.

However, when selecting a retirement community it’s crucial to consider other factors, such as climate, violence rate of the area, pension taxation of the state for retirees, and price. Forbes took into consideration all of these items and more, and came up with the 25 best cities for retirement in 2017.
