Many consider Los Angeles to be among the best retirement cities in the U.S. Here are some other reasons to choose living in Los Angeles.

Retirement Housing Options: In Los Angeles there are unique housing options which include condos, apartments for rent, hi-rises, retirement communities, lofts, co-ops, luxury condominiums, top end townhouses and other housing for over 55 boomers and seniors. Los Angeles has a building boom in retirement homes that went down with the economy, but now you can benefit by buying your retirement home at a much cheaper price.

Many retirement communities and 55 active adult retirement communities were build in the last decade in the Los Angeles Nevada area giving the retirees excellent choices in retirement homes.

Social Opportunities: studies have shown that a good group of friends is more important to a happy retirement than money or health. Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles is great since there are more specialists and medical services available and at cheaper rates.

Fitness: exercise is critical to keeping healthy during your retirement years and Los Angeles residents are some of the most fit people in the US. Los Angeles has 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. Los Angeles is the entertainment capital of the world with Holloywood located there, so retirees have tons of entertainment venues and soudstages to visit and there's always something going on.
