Survey: Top Cities In The World For Livability PDF Print E-mail

Many seniors retiring today have the option of choosing to move out of their home town, away from their native land and settle in a city on the other side of the world. Not only can it be less costly, safer and free of excessive taxes, but the culture more traditionally senior-friendly.

The 18th annual Mercer Quality of Life survey listed 230 cities, with the top five rankings going to Vienna, Austria, Zurich, Switzerland, Auckland, New Zealand, Munich, Germany and Vancouver, Canada. The top U.S. cities on the list, at #28 is San Francisco, #34 Boston, #35 Honolulu and #43 Chicago.

If you’re wondering, the bottom five on the list are Khartoum, Sudan, Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Sana’a, Yemen, and (Operation Desert Storm vets are not surprised to know) Baghdad, Iraq.
