What Makes Los Angeles the Place Baby Boomers Want to Retire

by Leonaro Dawson on Dec 22, 2012

Famous for both its cultural significance and its beautiful location on the Californian coast, Los Angeles is one of the best retirement destinations for seniors who are interested in remaining active well into old age. Los Angeles has all the amenities needed to accommodate seniors while also providing them with the chance to live even richer lives than prior to retirement.

Here are some of the factors that make the City of Angels stand out among the competition:

Los Angeles

Cosmopolitan

Los Angeles is home to more than 3.8 million people of all races and creeds. Furthermore, it is also one of the great hub cities of the world, making it a destination for people from all around the globe. As such, residents tend to be open-minded and can encounter all kinds of interesting people.

Entertainment

People living in Los Angeles are almost spoiled for choice when it comes to the range of available entertainment. The city and its environs boast almost 300 movie theaters and close to 20,000 restaurants. Residents can visit and make use of public tennis courts, public swimming pools, and even one of the 250 public golf courses situated close to the city. For individuals who prefer more sedate activities, Los Angeles is also home to more than 23,000 acres of parkland, 290 libraries, and 16 museums accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.

Good Climate

Few people prefer living in either hot or cold extremes compared to more moderate climes, which is another reason why Los Angeles makes for such a good retirement destination. Los Angeles has a Mediterranean climate with dry summers and rainy winters, but only rare incidents of snowfall. The highest temperature ever recorded in the city topped out at a 112 degrees Fahrenheit while the lowest recorded temperature hit bottom at 24 degrees Fahrenheit.

Medical Facilities

Residents of Los Angeles have access to more than 400 hospitals and more than 25,000 doctors. Given the sheer number of facilities available in the City of Angels, you can find the right medical specialists and get the right healthcare no matter your condition so long as you can pay for it.

Public Transportation

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority operates bus, light rail, and subway services that provide about 1.6 million trips on a daily basis. Usage is simple and convenient due to the adoption of a universal fare system in 2008 that stretches across both all services and the entire county.

Retirement Options

According to CNN Money, almost an entire quarter of Los Angeles's population was over the age of 50 in 2009. So it shouldn't be surprising that Los Angeles boasts many facilities and institutions catering to the needs of seniors, including more than 300 services offering amenities such as nursing and assisted living.

Social Opportunities

Given the choice in entertainment available, and the number of people either visiting or living in Los Angeles, seniors are provided with plentiful opportunities for socializing. Individuals willing to do a little searching can find others with the same tastes and hobbies in a short time.

Conclusion

In sum, there is no one single reason but rather a host of them to support the claim of Los Angeles being one of the best cities to retire to in the United States. Regardless of your needs and personal preferences, Los Angeles likely has the capabilities to both accommodate and appeal to them.
