To help out Americans in finding the best place to retire, WalletHub examined the 150 biggest cities in the USA across 25 key metrics. They ranged from cost of living to job prospects for workers aged 65 and older to the availability of recreational activities. The study also included an examination of each city’s quality of life and health care conditions. 

Wallethub used 5 criteria in arriving at its rankings, with 4 of them given a weight of 5 points — Affordability, Activities, Quality of Life and Health Care. Jobs are weighted two points. Out of those metrics, Tampa FL was rated #1 as the top city to live in as a retiree! Tampa's Mayor Bob Buckhorn has been trying to shift the economy toward tech-savvy young people, but Tampa offers older folks more reasons to come here than any big city in America. "Retirees bring financial stability" the mayor said, "along with positive life experiences they can share with the millennials the city is chasing".
