Even for the we’ll-do-it-our-way Baby Boom generation, retirement usually means two predictable changes: less income and more freedom to live where you please. That’s why so many folks at least consider moving in retirement and why Forbes’ list of The Best Places To Retire In 2019 highlights 25 locales that offer both affordability and a high quality of life.
Our new roster, our ninth annual such list, contains places in 17 states across all four continental time zones. While they vary dramatically by size, climate and culture, all offer excellent retirement value for the buck. The list is in alphabetical order, meaning we consider all equally worthy. Sadly, our quest for affordability excludes most of the Northeast and the West Coast. If you want to live in those regions, check out Forbes’ list of The Best Places To Retire In Each State. If you’re looking for something even farther from home, consider our recent list of the Best Places To Retire Abroad In 2019.
