SURVEY SAYS: Are big cities better places to retire?

My Dad’s dream was to retire back in the remote mountain town in which he grew up. He did, but was an hour away from health care when he needed it most at the end of his life.

A recent survey from Welltower finds that seven out of 10 big-city dwellers want to live in their current city when they are 80-years-old and older. They cite access to high-quality health care and big-city transportation options to address mobility concerns as top reasons.


This week, I’d like to know, do you think big cities are a better place to retire? And, do you plan to move when you retire?
