It takes years to save for retirement. Once you are ready to stop working, there may be a good chance that you do not want to live in the same town anymore, because you are ready to move to a better place. Not every retirement is the same. Some people want to relax, while others want to go out and live an active and adventurous life. Choosing somewhere to settle down can be tricky.

Lucky for us, Forbes has collected the data of the income and cost of living in the best towns in the US, and we are here to tell you more about what you can expect from each of these places.
