Boston sits well for retirees
Cold cities, warm heart? Many New Englanders eyeing retirement fantasize of becoming Florida snowbirds, but in reality the most social sunshine for seniors is much closer to home. The Milken Institute, a think tank that focuses on what makes societies thrive, this week published a report that found metropolitan Boston to be the fourth overall most attractive city in the nation for seniors. Boston scored high for its health care, public transportation, fitness opportunities, education, community engagement, cultural enrichment and high levels of employment for people 65 and over.
