Retirees may want to head to Lancaster, Pa. The town earned the top spot in U.S. News & World Report’s list of 2019 Best Places to Retire in the U.S. Lancaster’s housing affordability and its residents' high rank for their happiness, helped it to bump Sarasota, Fla., from the number one position this year.

U.S. News & World Report evaluated the country’s 100 largest metro areas to see how well they met retirees’ expectations, such as in housing affordability, desirability, health care, and overall happiness. “Deciding where to retire is a big decision,” says Emily Brandon, senior editor for retirement. “The Best Places to Retire offers a way for future retirees to make a more informed decision based on what matters the most to them.
