Denver third-best city for retirees in US, says new study

Retirees embracing RV living

Denver’s the third-best city in the U.S. for retirees, according to a new study.

Only Seattle and Minneapolis/St. Paul is better, according to “America’s Best Cities for a Healthy (and More Affordable) Retirement” that was commissioned by the Bankers Life Center for a Secure Retirement.

The survey used the methodology in its ranking of 60 U.S. cities that would affect retirees, including health care, the economy, and affordability, social, wellness, activities, environment, transportation and crime.

“Outdoor adventurers will love Denver and the endless opportunities the Rocky Mountains provide. The Mile High City also receives high marks for thriving cultural health,” the report noted.

The study ranked Los Angeles as the worst U.S. city for retirees.

Last week, Denver ranked No. 7 as the best U.S. city to live, according to a WalletHub report. Colorado Springs ranked No. 3.
