These are the ZIP codes where Boomers are retiring most

Florida isn’t the top retirement destination anymore. According to recent research by RENTCafé, boomers’ favorite retirement destinations are states in the Southwest.

The apartment search site analyzed census data from the 250 largest U.S. cities and took note of the rising population of boomers in each ZIP code.

But note that these retirement destinations are not the national leaders for boomer density. That honor goes to New York’s Brooklyn and Manhattan boroughs, followed by San Francisco; Queens, New York; and El Paso and Houston in Texas. All told, the New York City metro area had 14 of the top 20 ZIP codes for boomer populations.
