Delaware Named #2 Best State to Retire in 2023

August 10, 2023

Delaware: For retirees considering a move to Delaware, well-being is a big selling point. The state combines high-quality healthcare and a light tax burden to rank No. 2 overall. Diversity, wellness and culture are other strong points. The state ranks near the top for racial and ethnic diversity, arts and entertainment establishments per capita and wellness. It also has one of the nation’s highest percentages of over-65 residents. Earthquakes, tornados and hurricanes are rare — and it places in the middle of the pack in our rankings for both cost of healthcare and crime. The state’s only weaker spot is in the affordability category — this East Coast state ranks No. 31 for cost of living.
