A recent study determined the top 20 retirement 'hotspots' in the US for 2023. Two of the top 20 are in Wisconsin and they're the only two in the Midwest to make the list.

I'm a long way away from retirement but I'm not sure I'd want to leave Minnesota when I retire. I can absolutely see my husband and myself becoming snowbirds, though, and going to Arizona or something during the bad winter months.


Best Places to Retire in the US

Sadly, no towns in Minnesota made the list of the best spots to retire in 2023. In order to determine this list from StorageCafe, they looked at factors like healthcare, the cost of expenses, and how well people at retirement age would be able to fit into the community.

A large majority of the top towns to retire are on the east coast. There's also one in California, Texas, and, not surprisingly, quite a few in Florida. Plus the two towns in Wisconsin!

Here are the top 20 retirement 'hotspots' for 2023:

20. Hartford-East Hartford-Middletown, CT
19. Syracuse, NY
18. Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach, FL
17. Deltona-Daytona Beach-Ormond Beach, FL
16. Harrisburg-Carlisle, PA
15. Boston-Cambridge-Newton, MA-NH
14. Rochester, NY
13. Providence-Warwick, RI-MA
12. Madison, WI
11. El Paso, TX
10. Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk, CT
9. Oxnard-Thousand Oaks-Ventura, CA
8. Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL
7. Milwaukee-Waukesha, WI
6. Albany-Schenectady-Troy, NY
5. Daytona-Kettering, OH
4. New York-Newark-Jersey City, NY-NJ-PA
3. North Port-Sarasota-Bradenton, FL
2. Cleveland-Elyria, OH
1. Cape Coral-Fort Myers, FL

The Madison and Milwaukee areas are both apparently great places to retire! And like I said earlier, I'm not surprised by the number of Florida towns on the list. I mean, one of the factors is how well the retirees would fit in around the area and since so many people retire in Florida already it makes sense.
