North Dakota Tops Retirement List

Posted: Updated:

When it comes to retirement, most people may automatically think of sunny Florida or California, but those may not be the best options. In a new article released by Bankrate, states with colder weather climates are generally the better choice.

North Dakota took the number four spot on the list of top 10 states in the U.S. to retire in. The rankings were based on a handful of factors including weather, taxes and well-being.

Residents in the Peace Garden state have to deal with some of the coldest weather in the country, but that's offset by a relatively low crime rate, strong health care and one of the highest reported levels of general well-being in the country.

The other states to round out the top three include Utah, Colorado and South Dakota at the number one spot.
