In a recent survey of –the best places to retire” in the nationês 150 largest cities, Washington ranked near the bottom, but was fourth for the highest percentage of people still working after 65. The survey by WalletHub looked at 25 metrics, including cost of living, job prospects for older workers, availability of recreational activities, quality of life and health care.

Washington ranked 128th overall, mostly because of the high cost of living. It came in at 138 for affordability. It was far down the list for quality of life.
