It’s probably no surprise to Arizonans that our state was recently named one of the best to retire in, coming in at number six. Our state has been a favorite for senior citizens for decades and a large part of our economy relies on this population; our winter visitors alone contribute about $1.4 billion to Arizona’s economy. Even though we made it to the top ten, we think Arizona deserves to be at the top of that list!
So, let your golden years be the absolute best by choosing to retire right here in Arizona! Let’s take a look at some of the top reasons to choose the Grand Canyon State.
