To determine the best states to retire, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 47 key indicators of retirement-friendliness. The report examines affordability, health-related factors, and overall quality of life.

Other report highlights include:

Colorado had a total score of 60.99; we ranked 17th in affordability, 11th in quality of life, and 4th in healthcare.

Florida won the top prize by a statistically wide margin despite scoring mid-pack in the level of health care, which was Colorado’s most favorable measure.

Third-place New Hampshire was dragged down only by its affordability index.

The Rocky Mountain region was well-represented. Colorado neighbors Utah (No.4), Wyoming, (No.5), Idaho (No.9), and Montana (No.12) all scored well overall.
