When one gets to retirement age, the person wants to be in a State that suits the retirement lifestyle. The best state for retirees is definitely Florida.
There are some cons to Florida, such as warm weather creatures that can be scary like crocodiles. However, in the big cities, these are rarely seen. There are so many patrols. A person can feel safe in the a big city if the individual does not venture off the beaten path.
Usually, there are retirement communities in these cities that cater to retired people. That means that they bring in all the food people need. If people need to order food, there is post mates and other services that will deliver groceries to the door.
A person who retires here must have the money to ensure that leaving the retirement community is not a necessity. But having access to the pool and being able to always go outside makes Florida a great retirement area.
