Columbus Ranked Best City for Retirement!

According to Forbes, the magazine that always has some sort of city ranking going on, Columbus is considered the best city to settle down and live out your final days in. Dallas ranked second, and Minneapolis (pictured below) ranked third.

(So, truthfully, I was just looking for an excuse to post another picture of the world's finest city, Minneapolis!)

They derived these rankings by factors such as number of people over 65, life expectancy in the metropolitan, number of Doctors per-capita, percentage of people living below the poverty line, cost-of-living and house affordability. Here is the top ten best cities for retirement:
  1. Columbus, Ohio
  2. Dallas, Texas
  3. Minneapolis, Minnesota
  4. Houston, Texas
  5. Salt Lake City, Utah
  6. Indianapolis, Indiana
  7. Denver, Colorado
  8. St. Louis, Missouri
  9. Atlanta, Georgia
  10. Nashville, Tennesee
