As you might have noticed, Carson City is currently exhibiting a nice upward trend in its popularity as a retirement destination. By 2019, it’s high time this idyllic locale took a number one spot.

- Local tax rates
- Walk score

*It’s important to note that since the study consists of all US states, housing price and cost of living were not determining factors. This is due to the wide range of financial features that vary from state to state which would have been near impossible to compare.
According to Redfin, Carson City boasts temperate weather, an optimal walk score, a low tax rate and a surplus of senior-accessible features. Did you know that 300 days out of every year in Carson City are full of clear skies and sunshine? Not only is it an excellent place to visit; it’s also a wonderful atmosphere for retirement. Redfin even went so far as to call it a “thriving retiree community”.
