Picking a place to move to is important — but it's equally important to weigh the same factors when it comes to picking a place to retire.
Stacker compiled a list of the best places to retire in every state. They used data from Niche, including the cost of living, government services, health care facilities, weather and overall climate, crime rate, outdoor recreational activities, eating establishments, cultural and entertainment opportunities and more.
"Whether it be bustling downtowns or access to parks, affordable home prices or cultural amenities like museums, retirees seeking to settle in a permanent spot are sure to find a private paradise in any of these counties recommended by Niche because, in the end, there is no place like home—no matter the location," Stacker said.
