Lists of the best place to retire in the United States are easy to find. AARP has one; so do Forbes, U.S. News and a host of retiree-oriented websites. The same cities and states tend to appear on each list — Tucson, Ariz.! Austin, Texas! — in part because the things that matter most as people pick a place to retire — proximity to good medical care, tax advantages for seniors, nice climate and safe streets — never really go out of style.
