The coast, the desert, and golf communities had been typical destinations for previous generations of retirees, but Baby Boomers, are flipping the script as they so often have done since post World War II, by choosing to spend their golden years in urban areas.
"Many Boomers recognize that cities are a great place to age," says Daniel Levine, founding director of the Avant-Guide Institute trends consultancy. "Everything is often within walking distance, from restaurants to hair salons. Add the plethora of cultural activities and aging in the city is sort of like one big retirement home.
"America's cities are dynamic engines of change," he adds, "and boomers are as much as part of that as younger generations."
