When deciding where to retire, most people look to warm climates. But, there are other things to consider like population density, cost of living, and the types of communities that call a place home. One state that is worth a second look in retirement is Indiana. Retirees are choosing Indiana because it is one of the least expensive places to live: in Indiana, the median home cost is much lower than the national average and its grocery index is lower than the national average index. Indiana also is known for its beautiful grassy parks and hospitality, making it a wonderful location to spend your golden years.
