They’re being drawn to urban areas that tout walkability, nearby restaurants, culture, and public transportation. Cost of living and warmer weather may also play a role in where they settle as is evidenced by the list below.® researchers identified areas with the highest number of residents ages 55 and up, as well as areas that have seen the largest increases of this population over the past two years.
