Detroit is the largest city in the state of Michigan and is historically-known as the home of the American automobile industry. While the city has shrank in population since its heyday in the 1950's, Detroit still has a big automobile industry and is home to many major entertainment opportunities as well. Detroit has all four major American sports (basketball, baseball, football, and ice hockey) all of which have won major championships in their existence.

Detroit is also famous for its music culture which started in the 1970s. For the Broadway lover, Detroit has the nation's 2nd largest theater district after New York City which means you can have a nice dinner, catch a play, and enjoy some night life all in the same area. Real estate is also very inexpensive which is great for the retiree who wants a nice home but doesn't want to pay a fortune. It's possible to purchase beautiful mansions built in the first half of the 20th century for relatively inexpensive amounts compared to other cities.

Here are some other reasons to choose retirement living in Detroit.

Social Opportunities: studies have shown that a good group of friends is more important to a happy retirement than money or health. Detroit offers many opportunities with civic groups and hobby clubs to generate a solid core group of friends. These friends can help ward off the problems of aging like dementia and health issues.

Public Transportation: rural living isn't good for seniors who can't drive since they require someone's help to get around. The expenses of transportation add up quickly for fixed-income seniors so the public transportation of Detroit is quite beneficial. Even better is that most public transit systems have senior rates that are much cheaper than normal.

Access to Medical Services: it's pretty obvious that if you live near a hospital, you're more likely to survive a medical emergency. Despite how your mind feels, the body starts to break down and there's a good chance you'll need a hospital visit during your retirement years. Living in Detroit is great since there are more specialists and medical services available and at cheaper rates.

Access to Local Businesses: city living offers walking distance to most businesses that you'll ever use in your retirement years. Even if you need to travel, there are a lot more shopping centers and discount stores in urban areas.

Fitness: exercise is critical to keeping healthy during your retirement years. Cities have every type of fitness facility from standard fitness centers to niche fitness places like indoor rock climbing walls so there's something for everyone. Even if you want to exercise on your own, there's tons of parks or indoor malls to enjoy walking in.

Continuing Education: today’s seniors know the importance of exercising their brains, as well as their bodies. Urban living provides access to a wide range of classes, through local universities, museums, city recreation departments, etc. Enrolling in these types of courses can help stave off the depression that some people feel once they stop working full time.

Food and Entertainment: retirement should be full of activities you never had a chance to enjoy while working. Dinners out to fancy restaurants or weekend getaways to a nearby city or historical site are all possible living in a city. Usually, cities have tons of entertainment venues like theaters and museums and there's always something going on.
