With only 23 percent of Americans reporting that they are “very confident” they will have enough money for retirement, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2019’s Best & Worst Places to Retire (https://wallethub.com/edu/best-places-to-retire/6165/) as well as accompanying videos (https://wallethub.com/edu/best-places-to-retire/6165/#videos-for-news-use).
To help Americans plan for a comfortable retirement without breaking the bank, WalletHub compared more than 180 U.S. cities across 46 key measures of affordability, quality of life, health care and availability of recreational activities.
