I just completed a really in-depth study on the best metro areas for seniors to live in. Minneapolis came in first, with Boston and Pittsburgh rounding out the top three. There’s an overview of the study here, with the top 25 cities:
We considered nine broad categories, each consisting of several specific measures: Healthcare, Economy, Health & Longevity, Social Life, Environment, Spiritual Life, Housing, Transportation, and Crime.

In the PDF, we’ve even broken how cities scored in each of the individual categories. For example, the #1 city for Environment was San Francisco, whereas the #1 city for Housing was Oklahoma City.
