Retirees are moving more than ever: a record-breaking 1.2 million retired people moved homes in the United States last year. Are you 55 or older and looking for the best place to retire? Well, the Midwest has plenty of great places to settle down…
Town and Country – Not the Magazine
Nope, we are not talking about the popular magazine. No, instead, we are talking about the city of Town and Country in Missouri. Why is it one of the best places in the Midwest to retire? Well, the town has so many things to make the lives of older folk easier and better. For instance, the city features a Neighbor Driving Neighbor volunteer program that helps older adults complete errands. It also has another program, Care Calls, that check-in on older folk, as well as classes in computers and programs like Microsoft Word.
Take a trip over to Ohio, and you will find Bellbrook, another of the top-ranked places to retire in the Midwest. In Bellbrook, older adults will find plenty to do to keep them busy year-round. For those who love the outdoors, the trails of the multitude of parks and green spaces will provide hours of activity. Meanwhile, the town also features classes, libraries, and even the Bellbrook Historical Museum, which offers visitors a deep dive into the town’s history.
Elm Grove, WI
The city of Elm Grove, in Wisconsin, is another fantastic Midwestern town to retire in. After all, it’s a beautiful location with plenty to do! For instance, St. Mary’s Visitation Catholic Parish in Elm Grove has a “Seniors Club” that is one of the best in the state. The club meets twice a month and features a multitude of fantastic programs like luncheons, dances, speakers, day trips, games, and much, much more. “This group is open to all seniors, couples, and singles,” the official website states.
Of course, these are just a handful of the best cities and towns in the Midwest to retire to. If you would like to see the complete list, head on over to MSN.
