2 Louisiana Cities in The Top 25 U.S. Places To Retire

 

 The 2013 Forbes Magazine list of The Top 25 Best U.S. Places To Retire includes 2 of the Pelican State’s Cities. Both Baton Rouge & Alexandria were chosen after data was collected from over 400 cities in all 50 states. 

It’s no surprise that a warm climate is one preferred by some retirees, but many other factors weighed in on this listing. One big factor is that Louisiana was deemed one of the best states for retirees “from a tax perspective.”Forbes researchers also looked for median home prices below the current national average, which, as measured by the National Association of Realtors , is currently $186,000. Then they considered cost of living, availability of doctors, crime rates and encouragement for an active retirement. 

Other Fast Facts on the cities:

Alexandria, La – cheap cost of living, median home price $136,000 & above average air quality

Baton Rouge, La – low cost of living, median home price $168,000 & home to LSU

Whether making such a move for retirement is soon to be or still a dream, these two cities certainly are spots worth considering.

Happy 4th of July From Kristie & Co

In 1776, our brave, young nation declared its independence from England. By doing this, Americans sent a message to the world that freedom could stand up to anyone who threatened it. Over 200 years later, our nation still stands strong (though not perfect), & its those freedoms that are always worth defending. So, amidst all the fireworks, take a moment to reflect on those freedoms and the brave service men and women who defend us everyday!
 Happy 4th of July!!!
