As I approach retirement age, I can’t help but look around and wonder where I will spend my retirement years. Most people associate moving to Florida to retire, but I’m not so sure that is for me. I came across a new study that offers some new insight.

The Milken Institute determined the top cities in American for senior living.

Believe it or not, Provo-Orem, Utah tops the ranks of this year’s list of the country’s 100 most popular metropolitan regions for senior citizens. It ranked high in categories like   wellness, low obesity and  healthcare optionss.

The Milken Institute found that Sioux Falls, South Dakota topped the ranks of the smaller metropolitan areas with one of the strongest economic foundations of any other city.

Other factors used to determine the top cities for senior living included the number of museums, cultural experiences, volunteer rates, number of public libraries and YMCA’s, as well as funding for seniors.
