No. 5 Best Places to Retire in the Western United States: Portland, Oregon
Retirees looking for a big city life with a little city feel need look no further than Portland. The city gives its retirees access to arts, entertainment, fine dining, nearby wineries, golf, and countless outdoor activities. Its farmers’ markets are some of the nation’s best, and its bike paths the envy of many major cities. Add to that many great hospitals and a laid-back atmosphere to enjoy.
And when the rainy season comes, most retirees don’t mind just curling up with a good book or movie, and soaking in the day.
