Forbes is out with it's list of 25 Best Places to Retire for 2016.
Thanks to the aging of the Baby Boomers–that huge generation born between 1946 and 1964–there probably never has been more interest in retirement issues than now. Last year, there were 57 million Boomers age 55 or older. By 2020, when the youngest Boomers have passed the big 55, that number will swell to 71 million.
This year’s picks are situated in 19 states across all four continental time zones. The list skews toward warm or moderate climates, in line with research by the National Association of Realtors and the U.S. Census showing baby boomers approaching retirement favor sunnier weather when they move. So four of our choices are in Florida, three in Texas and two in North Carolina. For those who like (or at least, can tolerate) especially hardy winters we include Fargo, N.D.; Pittsburgh and–a newcomer to our annual list–Traverse City, Mich.
