Onboard Informatics, the premier data services
company for top tier organizations in real estate, media, and
technology, to create a list of great places to retire in 10 key
categories. "Everybody's got their own idea of the best place
said Brian Kelly, editor of U.S. News, "so we've created tools
the search fun and useful. There are some great and unexpected choices."
Many of the categories
focus on how to achieve the retirement lifestyle
you want on a fixed income, such as the best place for water views
budget (Traverse City, Mich.), an affordable mountain town for retirees
(Boone, N.C.), and the best place to find affordable housing (Port
Charlotte, Fla.). We also recognize Pittsburgh as a place that provides
a great mix of affordability and amenities for retirees.
This list also includes
a place with pleasant weather year-round
(Flagstaff, Ariz.), a locale with unique recreation and cultural
opportunities to explore(Santa Fe, N.M.), and a college town that
also friendly to retirees (Ithaca, N.Y.). Retirement is a period
in which many people reinvent themselves, so we've included a great
place to launch a second career (Lincoln, Neb.) or form a new
relationship in a city with plenty of single people age 55 and older
