Naperville residents won't have to travel very far to find the best city for early retirement.
According to Kiplinger Magazine, Naperville is the best city for those retiring early based on factors such as unemployment rate, household incomes, cost of living and low crime rate.
Kiplinger used the data aggregator FindTheBest to crunch the numbers and rank the top ten cities for early retirement.
Naperville's close proximity to Chicago as well as its low crime rate bumped the city to the top of the list. The city's vibrant downtown as well as the number of residents ages 45 to 64 were also deciding factors, according to the magazine.
"Back in Naperville, early retirees will feel at home thanks to the highest percentage of residents ages 45 to 64 on this list," according to Kiplinger. "Meet new-found friends in the pedestrian-friendly downtown, which is packed with shops and restaurants as well as a 1.75-mile Riverwalk."
