AARP Ranks Most Affordable Retirement Cities in 2013

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.”
