Millions of people make the choice to relocate when they retire. The biggest reason for a move is the desire for change. Whether retirees are looking to start a whole new career, find a lower cost of living, or simply experience a new living environment, moving is often one of the first major changes people make after retirement.
E-Z Movers, a professional moving company in Chicago, has researched recent moving trends related to retirees and discovered the best places to retire in 2013.
Where are retirees moving this year?
Many people who are retiring want to move to an area with a warmer year-round environment. Some of the most popular relocation destinations for retirees include states like Texas, North Carolina, Louisiana, and Arizona—which has been a favorite retirement destination for years, due to the warm and dry climate.
However, Florida still tops the list of the most common places to move after retirement. The Sunshine State is popular because not only are the weather conditions and the cost of living highly favorable, but there are also plenty of recreational opportunities, many of them geared specifically for retirees.
Of course, Orlando movers enjoy close proximity to Disney World, the most famous theme park in the world. There is more to Orlando than amusement parks for retirees, including some exceptional golf courses, fine dining, and shopping.
Another popular Florida destination is Fort Lauderdale. Movers to this area will find a retirement community that has been established since the end of World War II, and offers a relaxing waterfront lifestyle. Miami movers will enjoy the conveniences of city living combined with beautiful weather, pristine beaches, and ample cultural attractions and opportunities.
