6. Sun City, Arizona

Population: 39,952 adults; 29,880 seniors

AARP viability value: 48

Technically, Sun City is not a city, but an old age community in Maricopa County (in the greater Phoenix area). But if you want to meet people old enough to watch the moon landing then this is a good place. There are plenty of outdoor activities in and around the 21 square miles of Sun City, where the skies are mostly clear year round and the temperature ranges between 43 and 106 degrees. Within the community there is the Singles Social Club, which organizes potlucks, game evenings, billiards and golf meetings. There’s bowling, jewelry making, and pickleball – every type of club you can think of.

7. Madison, Wisconsin

Population: 210,210 adults; 28,516 seniors

AARP viability value: 66

Money Magazine recently named Madison # 1 in America. The university town between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona is not only affordable – it offers bustling restaurants, great natural attractions along the lakeshore, an orchestra, contemporary art museum, cultural events, and 38 age groups. The university offers residents over 60 years of age the opportunity to examine courses for free.
