Top 5 Ranked Arizona Retirement Locales 

Looking for a place to retire? According to the U.S. census, 15.4 percent of people living in Arizona are 65 years or older, a proportion slightly larger than the national average. It’s no surprise Arizona would be one of the top places to retire, especially since Arizona as a whole is one of the 10 most tax-friendly states for retirees, according to Kiplinger, a Washington, D.C.-based business and finance-advice publication. A survey on WallHub, a financial-planning website for consumers and small-business owners, ranked the top-50 best places to retire in the country. Not surprisingly, sunny Arizona made the list multiple times!

AARP projects that by 2040, the state will see a 300 percent increase in residents ages 85 or older. The group also found seniors in Arizona have lower rates of high blood pressure, obesity, smoking and diabetes than the nation's average rates. Below are the top 5 Arizona retirement locales according to Wallhub:

1. Scottsdale

2. Peoria

3. Tempe

4. Mesa

5. Tucson

These Arizona retirement locations feature recreational centers, golf courses and bowling alleys as well as local grocery stores, banks and restaurants clustered throughout the communities. As the number of retirees climbs nationwide, people beginning a new stage of life are seeking out the best places in Arizona to retire. Whole communities already cater to retirees and other active adults throughout the state.  If you’re looking for an Arizona retirement community to call home, please contact Sharon Mason today.
