Forget Florida: Colder Climes Top Retirement List
DAVID GREENE, Host:
And our last word in business today is take that, sunny Florida. A new list of the top retirement locations ranks the Twin Cities region as number one. The survey by insurance company Bankers Life and Casualty Company, in fact, shows many colder climates as good places to spend one's older years. Boston, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Denver round out the top five. The study looked at health care availability, including geriatric services and public transportation. The winning cities also have high populations of older residents, which means a socially active retirement, if a more chilly one.
