An index ranking the top large U.S. metropolitan areas for “aging successfully” suggests that the northern half of the country is the best place to do it.

After analyzing dozens of factors — including crime rates, housing costs, tax rates, transportation, fitness, access to health care, job opportunities and community engagement — the Milken Institute’s Best Cities for Successful Aging Index shows these 10 metros offer a number of advantages for retiring happily:

  1. Provo-Orem, Utah
  2. Madison, Wis.
  3. Omaha-Council Bluffs, Neb.-Iowa
  4. Boston-Cambridge-Quincy, Mass.-N.H.
  5. New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, N.Y.-N.J.-Pa.
  6. (tie) Des Moines-West Des Moines, Iowa
  7. (tie) Salt Lake City, Utah
  8. Toledo, Ohio
  9. Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, D.C.-Va.-Md.-W.Va.
  10. Pittsburgh, Pa.
