Retirees are flocking to the great state of Alaska. For one, the cost of living isn’t exorbitant compared to some of the warm weather locations (such as California). The beautiful scenery in Alaska is prime for those who enjoy hiking, fishing, water sports, snow sports, and a simply tranquil way of life.
Things are slower in Alaska — but in a good way. You’re able to disconnect from the traffic and congestion of many major cities. Plus, it offers some of the best health care in the country.
