Money ranks Huntsville #12 as one of the best cities to retire! Boise Idaho and a couple of Michigan states ranked as well. Brrrrr!

That is great. It was also nice to see that my hometown, Cape Coral, Fl was listed #2

Huntsville is a fine place and I would think retirees would find Huntsville the best of all worlds: low cost of living, safe, plenty of access to good health, vibrant and emerging arts scene. Downtown needs some work but it's coming.

Yeah yeah just wait until you need to call a contractor or handyman and you can't get one to show up!

I have always said, and will continue to say that since each person's situation is different, these types of rankings are fairly useless. A better way to find your own "best" place for retirement would be to use Moderator cut: link removed, linking to competitor sites is not allowed, which allows people to have inputs into what things are most important for them in a city, and what things are least important.....

There was absolutely NO reason for city-data to censor the name of the website. But, it is called Find Your Spot. When you can pick the criteria that are important to you, and assign weights to the individual criteria, it becomes a LOT easier to pinpoint where you might like to live.
