A recent study by Moneyrates.com ranked the best and worst states to retire. The number one state for retirees? Hawaii!
But for those of us who don't have the means to relocate to the Aloha State, let's take a look at the states that rounded out the top 10.
Analyzing the size/growth of the senior population, economic factors, crime rates, weather, and life expectancy at age 65, the states that made the top 10 are a mix of states in the Mid-West (Iowa, Idaho, and Montana, ranked 2, 3, and 10, respectively), the South (Florida and Virginia), the North-East (Vermont and Maine), and the West (Arizona and Colorado), covering all the geographic regions in the United States.
