Phoenix, Tucson named top places to retire

Long-term Valley residents know Arizona is a favorite destination for retirees, and a national publication backed up that fact.

According to Forbes, both Phoenix and Tucson are among the top 25 areas for retirement.

Phoenix was chosen because it has a good tax environment, low cost of living, good weather, high number of doctors and home prices that average $119,000.

Tucson made the list for its low cost of living and taxes, good weather, encouraging an active retirement, plenty of doctors and a median home price of $131,000.

Each city had a poor economy listed as its only negative.
