AARP The Magazine has taken its annual rankings of the best retirement destinations in the U.S. one step further, by including cities where retirees can live comfortably for under $30,000.
The ten cities selected by AARP reflect the most livable budget-friendly retirement areas in terms of median home prices, property taxes and mortgages. AARP also considered intangibles such as wallet-friendly entertainment and the best local eateries in its rankings.
Cities featured on this year’s list include Bangor, Maine; Daytona Beach, Florida; and Erie, Pennsylvania, among other attractive locales for retirees.
“Our readers are interesting in living their best lives without spending a fortune,” said Robert Love, editor in chief of AARP The Magazine. “Each year we aim to find new locations packed with affordable opportunities appealing to the 50+ audience and these are some of the places where this is happening.”
