If you're single and you're looking for a great place to retire that'll not only be a suitable environment for your relaxed new lifestyle but that will also put you in the path of others like yourself, you could do a lot worse than end up in one of the 5 cities listed below -- each of which have the highest population of single retirees over 55.
Pittsfield, MA -- If you're a literature fan you'll know Pittsfield as the place where Melville wrote Moby Dick. But what you probably didn't know is that the majority of Pittsfield's over-55 population is single. Talk about increasing your chances of landing a hot date on short notice.
Florence, SC -- The fact that Florence is an hour's drive from Myrtle Beach should be a selling point in and of itself, even more so for its southern charm. But if you're interested in knowing where singles retire to increase their chances of meeting someone special, Florence is one such place, where just about every other retired person you'll meet is single (49 percent).
Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach, FL -- Put yourself in the middle of this immense metro area if you want to experience great year-round weather and a bevy of single retirees. If you happen to be a retired single male, consider yourself lucky: here, there are close to half a million available female retirees to the quarter million single male retirees.
Memphis, TN -- The knowledge that Memphis has one of the largest percentages of single retirees in the country is enough reason to consider it as your new home, but if you're an Elvis fan or music lover you've now got three great reasons.
New Orleans, LA -- To the excitement of single retirees the nation over, we're happy to announce what the figures bear out: that with close to 130,000 retired single folks, The Big Easy is officially one of the top places in the country where singles retire. Maybe it's the allure of the city's rich history, the draw of its vibrant music scene, or the convenient proximity to Mardi Gras that makes this city one of the country's most retired-to places. Whatever the reason, if you've ever needed a reason to retire to New Orleans, you've got one now.
