Would you like to retire to Nevada? Well, you are not alone.
The National Association of Homebuilders predicts that Nevada will become the number one retirement destination in the country within the next decade. Nevada's warm, dry climate coupled with its cultural, entertainment and numerous recreational activities make this a very appealing destination for many retirees. Many California retirees wanting to stay close to friends and family are being lured by lower taxes and less congestion as well as lower home prices.
One of the most popular destinations is the Las Vegas/Henderson area. Many of the retirement communities here are mini-resorts catering to the active adult lifestyle. With over 300 days of sunshine and just 4 inches of rain on average every year, it's easy to see why it is so popular.
Another hot spot is Reno, "The Biggest Little City in the World". If you are looking for a place a little less populated than Vegas but would still like all of the amenities that Vegas has to offer, Reno may be just what you are looking for. Reno has an altitude of about 4,400 feet in a beautiful mountainous setting making it considerably cooler than Las Vegas.
Both Reno and Las Vegas are equipped with excellent medical facilities.
Nevada is a low-tax paradise. It has a no state income tax. The state sales tax is 6.5%. Nevada is ranked 49th in total tax burden making it a very appealing place for many retirees considering retirement. If Nevada is on your list of "Best Places To Retire", be sure that once you determine the area you are interested in, be sure to visit the area at least twice, once in the summer and again in the winter before you make you final decision.
