10 cities where retirees rule
Today, 13% of the US population is 65 years old or older. But in Honolulu, Miami and many other cities, it feels as if the seniors are in charge.

I saw your comment rich244 and just wanted to agree with you. I very seldom look at this internet stuff because these people write about stuff they have never experienced and I am sure they have never been to most of these places they talk about. There are so many nice places on this earth to retire and it is such a personal decision, Most seniors do not think about "ruling" anything and this statement tells me that a 30 year old is writing this article to sound cool and hip. If someone would do some real research and report on real information, I might starting reading internet stuff more often. I am including all news articles not just this silly article...
the best place for you to retire is the best place for YOU
1. maybe its the weather
2 .maybe its the grandkids
3. maybe its your friends
4. maybe its the price of the home you want
5 maybe its the healthcare
Whatever the answer it probably isn't on one of these lists
Hawaii is one of the most expensive place's that I have ever spent a week . Yes I know that most places that people go on vacation will cost the "tourist" more then a "local" but who want to spend a week in Davenport Iowa ?While I was there I talked a few locals and most have two or three jobs just to make it
.....give me a break
One of the most miserable places on earth - next to say, Haiti
I see that they have posted Honolulu as one of the worst and also one of the best. Make up your mind. These is no way the average seniors could afford many of these places.
I agree with Rich 244 many of us seniors are not living on the kind of money it would take to live in many of these places.
Sun City West has 3 recreation centers, pickle ball courts, everything the article talks about.
Surprise doesn't have any of this stuff. Surprise is next door, very close but not at all the same.
My son was trying to tell me yesterday that SCW is referred to as Surprise and maybe this is where the mistake came from. Retirement communities are Sun City West, Sun City, Sun City Grand. Surprise is not and does not offer the clubs, recreation, pickle ball courts, etc.
