Best and Worst Places to Retire, both Sioux Falls and Rapid City (pictured) are a no-brainer, citing their "cost of living to retired taxpayer-friendliness to availability of recreational activities."
As per WalletHub, the report was the result of a specific methodology, which compared the "retirement-friendliness of 182 cities — including the 150 most populated U.S. cities, plus at least two of the most populated cities in each state — across four key dimensions: 1) Affordability, 2) Activities, 3) Quality of Life and 4) Health Care," putting the pictured Sioux Falls at #13 and Rapid City at #19.
In addition to each scoring in the Top 20, Sioux Falls also received a glowing review for being one of the Highest Percentage of Employed Population Aged 65 and Over!
