Are many seniors retiring in Colorado?
Colorado ranked second as the best place for seniors to retire. The Centennial State also ranked in the top five states where seniors are the happiest.
Per capita, the senior population is relatively low because the booming population is primarily due to younger generations seeking tech jobs and outdoor adventures. Seniors can reap these benefits by finding the availability of senior living easier than in more competitive retirement destinations.
With the Air Force Academy and multiple military bases in town, the city boasts a veteran population of over 53,000. Many seniors move to Colorado Springs to be closer to the patriotic support and enlisted family members. StoneCreek of Flying Horse loves our veteran residents.
The scenery in Colorado is gorgeous, but people living in Denver have to travel to get into true nature. Seniors will love being surrounded by it in Colorado Springs. You’ll never tire of the view of Pikes Peak.
