Retirement can sometimes be frightening because of its uncertainty. Thoughts about whether there will be enough money to live the rest of their lives often swarm in the minds of those who are about to end their careers and retire. But, as reported Travel and Leisure, there is no need to worry, because there are places where you can move and live in abundance without having any savings.

According to GoBankingRates research, a third of Americans only have the $500 maximum, meaning they'll likely rely on Social Security benefits in retirement. In some cases this may be sufficient. To help people figure out their options, GoBankingRates has compiled a list of the best and worst places to live in retirement if you don't have any savings.

The company analyzed the 100 largest US cities with large populations over 65 years of age. They then ranked those cities based on a variety of factors, including median home values ​​in 2023 and property tax rates, which they determined using Zillow.

When compiling the list, we took into account annual home health care costs, the cost of food, utilities, and also took information from AARP on whether the state taxes Social Security benefits. After compiling all the data, the team named Foley, Alabama, as the best retirement destination for those with little to no savings.

Located just 30 minutes from the Gulf Coast beaches, Foley is an ideal location because more than 30% of the population is age 65 or older, according to GoBankingRates.
