If you’re ready to put away that briefcase and trade work-appropriate suits for casual attire, think twice about where you retire, and not just when, according to WalletHub, the personal finance website.

Sure, it would be wonderful to spend a night on the town in the Big Apple, one of the world’s most glamorous cities, or bask in the radiant glow of a Hawaiian sunset anytime you like, but the reality of such daydreams is that they are anything but affordable or practical for most people on a fixed income. 

WalletHub has taken the guesswork out of finding these retirement wreckers so you can avoid them with a 10-foot-pole and make other plans for your happy-ever-after retirement destination. 

Using 46 relevant metrics graded from 0 to 100, with 0 representing the least favorable conditions for retirement, WalletHub compared 182 U.S. cities across four key dimensions: affordability, activities, quality of life and healthcare. The weighted average was used to rank-order each city.

Here, in ascending order, are 2020’s top 10 worst places to retire.

10. Wichita, Kansas

Known as the air capital of the world, Wichita is also the birthplace of Pizza Hut and White Castle, but fast food and fast flights are no guarantee of a retirement in the fast lane. Wichita ranks 107th in healthcare; 119th in affordability; 126th in activities; and 172nd in quality of life. Total Score: 40.47.
