  1. Are they sure they “want” to retire there or is that is where a lot of retired people live? I’ve never once said let’s move to Cleveland!

  2. Charlottesville, VA used to be listed as one of the top small cites to live and to retire to. After the event, it is never listed anywhere. Moderate climate with 4 seasons, relatively inexpensive, though that’s changing and some of the best hospitals, medical systems in the World. . Many retirees here.

  3. I don’t trust those results. Why are so many high taxes/high crime/terrible winters cities in the northeast on there? And no Texas cities in the top 10? Come on, man!
