Redfin found the best place to retire in each state that it operates in, based on factors like walkability, taxes, weather, and accessibility.
We didn’t consider home prices as they vary widely within and across states and “affordability” is subjective. Each category was weighted equally, and the city with the highest combined score across the above categories was chosen as the best place to retire in that state.
Some of the noteworthy retirement-ready cities include Tucson, Ariz., Indianapolis, Louisville, and New Orleans. Smaller gems were listed for Georgia (Rome), Minnesota (Duluth), Oregon (Eugene), Wisconsin (Janesville), and more.
