Sick of shoveling snow, cleaning off your car or bundling up in more layers than you can count? While work may force us to live in places with cold winters, retirement can offer a respite from harsh weather.
Kiplinger, the personal finance experts, have released a list of their 10 favorite retirement locales, places where you can enjoy your golden years in a warmer climate.
They looked at factors such as the average high and low temps, as well as cost-of-living, tax-friendliness, healthcare costs, and the percent of the population that's of retirement age. Of course, the list includes destinations in Florida and Hawaii, but there are some lesser-known cities that can also offer creature comforts.
Earlier this month, Huff/Post50 published another list of best places to retire -- places that are all overseas. That ranking placed Panama at the top.
For the Kiplinger ranking, check out five of the best places below and head over to Kiplinger to see the full list.
