best place to live in retirementLas Cruces, New Mexico has once again been named one of the best places to live and one of America’s top places to retire!  For the last decade Las Cruces has consistently been named among the top cities to live by trusted sources such as Forbes, Money, Milken, AARP, Where to Retire Magazine and more.  This week named Las Cruces, New Mexico number two on their “”America’s Top Places to Retire“” list for retirement age boomers.

Here is a little bit of what has to say about Las Cruces, New Mexico:

Although it is New Mexico’s second most populous city, residents describe the small-town feel, relaxed pace and affordable prices.

The city has low property taxes, and New Mexico residents 65 and older may exempt up to $16,000 (if married, filing jointly) in taxes from any income source if it’s under $51,000… The town features four golf courses, nearby mountains for hiking and camping and is approximately four hours from Santa Fe, another prime retirement spot. Nearby New Mexico State University also offers a range of activities, from symphonies and theatrical performances to sporting events.

In another article, “”Boomers Buck to the Trend for Retirement Hot Spots,”” notes that, “”Unlike their parents and the generations before them, Boomers are increasingly willing to relocate upon retirement, and their choices of locations are becoming more active, youthful and far-removed from the stereotypical retirement spots.“”

Las Cruces, New Mexico is consistently ranked among the top places that  Boomers would like to retire because it features so many communities and new custom homes with the amenities Boomers are looking for. Plus, Las Cruces offers freedom of lifestyle, great weather, and outdoor amenities, without locking Boomers into the cost and constraints of traditional retirement communities.
