Sunny. Walkable. And a low cost of living.

Nerdwallet recently came out with its rankings of the top 10 best cities to retire.

Ranking cities by factors like medical care, climate and cost of living*, they sought to find the kind of places where retirees can kick back and relax but still engage in a bustling city culture when they want it.

*Cost of living used was based on the ACCRA cost of living index. The nationwide ACCRA average is 100. The numbers noted on each slide are percentages of that average.

You have the pictures for Jacksonville and Tampa switched. As you can see above the description for Tampa, there is a picture of the Jacksonville Landing.

In my opinion, Jacksonville should be number one. Not only does it have the lowest cost for a doctor's visit, but it has exceptional hospitals for that low cost. Also, it has great weather, low cost of living and it is relatively unknown.

Never mind the listed cities.... I just say it... Jacksonville is my #1 place to choose... Or a little below to Ponte Vedra Beach where you find one PGA Golf Course...
