Any guesses on the best state for retirees? Nope, not Florida, which isn't even close, geographically speaking. After crunching data on factors such as cost of living, taxes, health care, weather, and well-being, Bankrate has anointed Wyoming the nation's best choice for retirees. In fact, the East Coast has only one entrant in the top 10:

  1. Wyoming
  2. South Dakota
  3. Colorado
  4. Utah
  5. Virginia
  6. Montana
  7. Idaho
  8. Iowa
  9. Arizona
  10. Nebraska
