The state of Florida no longer has a lock on having the most cities ranked in the top 10 best places to retire in the U.S., according to the latest rankings from U.S. News and World Report.

Instead, metropolitan areas in Pennsylvania dominated the top spots on the list, with Lancaster earning the number one slot for its quality health care for seniors, retiree tax rates and overall happiness of residents. Last year, the city was ranked the fifth best place to retire. The shift towards Pennsylvania comes as Americans increasingly prioritize housing affordability in their golden years, making it the most heavily weighted category in the retirement rankings. For most retirees, housing is the largest expense. …

Here are the top 10 place to retire for 2022-2023:

  1. Lancaster, PA 
  2. Harrisburg, PA 
  3. Pensacola, FL 
  4. Tampa, FL 
  5. York, PA 
  6. Naples, FL 
  7. Daytona Beach, FL 
  8. Ann Arbor, MI 
  9. Allentown, PA
