Forbes: Tucson Mesa among the best places to retire

Two Arizona cities- Tucson and Mesa-ranked in the top 25, in Forbes magazine’s annual list of best places to retire.
The business magazine ranked and evaluated metropolitan areas using a variety of factors including biking and walking facilities, health care, transportation, crime rates and cost of living.

Mesa, home to several baseball spring training ballparks- headlined by the Chicago Cubs’ brand new Sloan Field–has a low cost of living and a growing economy, Forbes found.

Tucson, home to the University of Arizona, is a small but lively college town that boasts a high rating for bicycling.

The list is not ranked best to worst. Other cities featured, include Pennsylvania, , Kentucky, Bowling Green, Athens, Georgia, Kentucky and Pittsburgh, Lexington, Kentucky. The list is not ranked best to worst.
