According to WalletHub’s recently released list of the Best States to Retire, the Centennial State is the second-best place to be in America, thanks to several different factors.
Coming in behind Florida, Colorado scored second best in a handful of categories, which – as per WalletHub’s methodology – includes affordability (adjusted cost of living and tax-friendliness on pensions & social security income, to name a few), quality of life (a la access to public transit and share of population aged 65+), and overall healthcare, all of which landed the Centennial State at the top of the list.
Given all of this information, Colorado scored a whopping 60.99, just beating out New Hampshire (59.25) and trailing Florida (63.02).
