Good Life: Why Retire in Louisiana?

Today, people who retire can expect to enjoy many healthy years, so deciding where to retire has become more important than ever. Climate, cost of living, housing choices, outdoor activities – all are important parts of the equation when it comes to selecting just the right spot to spend those years.

For lots of people, Louisiana meets their needs and then some. Its nickname, Sportsman’s Paradise, alludes to the many places there are to swim, fish, hike, watch birds, golf, go boating or camp out. If history is your thing, you can spend days visiting the many state historical sites and learning about Louisiana’s fascinating political history.

If you like to party, our friendly people, fine resorts and restaurants make living it up a cinch. If you’re more into relaxing, we have plenty of friendly rural communities where sitting on the front porch sharing coffee with neighbors is a popular way to spend the afternoon.

The state’s array of two- and four-year institutions of learning make going back to school convenient, and the medical facilities you may need during retirement are available in all regions of the state.
