The coastal city of Miami is a member of the AARP Age-Friendly Network, indicating its local government has taken steps to make it a safe, comfortable environment for residents of all ages. It’s home to over 440,000 year-round residents and has a large senior community that makes up nearly 17% of the population. While Miami’s overall cost of living is about 20% higher than state and national averages, the state’s lack of income tax may help those with limited resources afford local living expenses.
