The Case for Retirement in Missouri

So you don’t want to jump on the bandwagon to the Sunshine state for retirement, huh? Perfect, Missouri would love to have you. Retirement in Missouri could be the best option for you.  Missouri is basically smack dab in the middle of the country. It’s not too far from anything or anywhere you want to go. We’re pretty central here and we like to take things slow. We’ve got home grown values and we always greet you with a warm smile.

Retirement doesn’t mean your life has got to be boring. Retirement is what we’ve all been waiting for since we started working. It’s the promise land. It’s now your time to do whatever you want to do, whenever you want to do it, with a senior discount. What better way to spend your days than casting a line in one of Missouri’s many rivers. Find your new favorite fishing hole in any of Missouri’s fine bodies of water. Or you could finally perfect that backstroke on the beautiful green of any Missouri golf course.

Fishing and golfing are just a few of the many amenities Missouri can offer you. If you like to be a bit more active, Missouri is home to hundreds of scenic hiking and walking trails. Get some fresh air and enjoy the scenery. Missouri has got some of the best sunsets out there.

If you love a nice relaxing game of baseball on a warm summer day, look no further than Busch Stadium, home of the St. Louis Cardinals. St. Louis has been claimed to have the best fans in baseball. So if you’re looking for a new sporting community to join, it’s this one. We love all our sports teams.

Missouri can offer you many fun and relaxing opportunities. We’ve got some of the best wineries and breweries for you to explore, including the Anheuser Busch brewing company. (They’ve got free tours with beer everyday!) We have over 120 wineries across the state for you to sample.

Remember, a glass of red wine a day keeps the doctor away. Check into one of our quaint resorts for a quiet getaway at Lake of the Ozarks. Missouri also has a growing art district and lots of interesting museums. There are also 15 casinos across the state for you to test your luck. The list goes on and on.

Missouri was ranked the 14th best state for retirement. We’ve got many options for assisted housing as well as lovely independent living with warm and friendly staff. The choice is yours, this is your time. Retirement in Missouri is very cost effective and affordable. Missouri will give you the most bang for your buck.
