List of best cities for seniors is surprising many

Minneapolis tops the list for best cities for seniorsA recent survey took a different look at senior living statistics and found the best cities for aging adults to spend their golden years. The results showed that Minneapolis, Minnesota, was on top with Boston, Massachusetts; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Cleveland, Ohio and Denver, Colorado.

"We weren't interested in another study on where to enjoy your retirement, but instead wanted to find cities that did the best job in providing the services and support that seniors need," said Scott Perry, the president of Bankers and Casualty Company, which conducted the study. "The top ranked cities aren't what come to mind when you think about where to spend your golden years, but they scored high in the criteria most important to the 65 and up bracket."

The categories were based off of hospitals and physicians per capita, economic statistics, life expectancy, social aspects, environment, spirituality, transportation accessibility and crime rates.

The seniors who are in the market for a new home to spend their retirement living years, may want to consider some of these cities.
