With all of the doom and gloom in the world these days we wanted to provide a more upbeat article for you to read. This article looks into retirement and what are the best states to live in during your retirement. Florida came in as the best state to live in. A quarter of the state’s population is age 60 or older and it obviously has sandy beaches and warm weather. The average home price in Florida is not at $252,000. We could give you 5 guesses on who came in at number 2 on this list and we doubt that anybody would come up with the 2nd best state to live in during retirement – Minnesota!!!
