  • We know the best seaside towns, bustling cities, mountain hamlets, desert oases and more! Many places are more affordable for retirement than you might think.
  • In each place we cover costs, housing, taxes, climate, recreation, amenities, safety, medical, transportation and more!
  • We also know the best active adult, master planned communities - big and small, new and established!

  • Plus, we review towns suggested by our readers. In fact, we've looked at 1,500+ places across the country to see how they stack up for retirement!

    Chances are that if you have a place in mind for retirement, we've reviewed it and looked at its cost of living, housing costs, taxes, amenities, climate, hospitals, transportation, crime rate and more. And because no place is perfect, we also report on each town's drawbacks.

    Our reviews are honest and objective. We are not associated with any of the places or communities that we review.
