Best Places in the Country for Military Retirees

When you’re evaluating the best places for military retirees to live several criteria come to mind including weather, taxes, employment opportunities, crime, education, entertainment. Other, less tangible items like proximity to family and friends, are often more important to the individual retiree.

That said, Wallet Hub recently published their “Best Places” list for 2014. The methodology for the rankings was categorized as Economic Environment, Quality of Life, and Health Care. Different weights were placed on the scores to help emphasize issues that may be of interest to military retirees specifically, such as the number of bases in the state and the number of VA facilities. 

I won’t steal Wallet Hubs thunder by repeating their top ten list, but will point out that it’s probably better to break this information down further and consider regional alternatives. In Nevada, Las Vegas is lumped in the mix with Elko and Carson City, but has a new, state-of-the-art VA Hospital and a recovering economy. It also is the home of Nellis AFB, offering military retirees all the amenities that come along with a world class facility.

    If I settled down somewhere I’d want to be close to an Air Force Base 😉
