Missouri Ranks High on ‘Best States for Retirement’ List

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Missouri ranks high on a list of best states in which to retire.

Bankrate.com tackled the “where should I retire question” from a unique angle. Instead of looking at the states with the best beach access and golf courses, it weighed its findings on other more practical issues: cost of living, crime rates, tax rates, access to medical care, and average annual temperatures.

Taking all those factors into consideration, Missouri comes in as the eleventh-best retirement state, ahead of Florida and Arizona. Illinois is listed as number 20.

Tennessee was number one on the list and Oregon was last.
