The best places to retire in America are all college towns

Finding the right place to retire can be difficult. On the one hand, preparing to live on a fixed income and stretching your hard-won nest egg as far as you can has to be a priority. On the other, your golden years are supposed to be a time to really enjoy yourself.

Major cities have a wide range of amenities, but they’re also really pricey. You might be able to spend less in small towns, but they probably won’t offer everything you’re looking for. College towns are the perfect balance — they tend to feature a wider variety of cultural attractions, but many are also located in relatively small cities in inexpensive states.
