Bank-Rate.com Released The Best Places To Retire 2014 Version

Okay, so let me just say that Florida was #19 last year.  We made a HUGE plunge in the ranking this year.  I have visited or lived in at least 25 of the 50 states and I have to say that I don't agree with their ranking, even though they are all statistics.  In addition- (spoiler alert) South Dakota as #1?!  Yeah- NOPE.  

*Scores taken from the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index. The higher the score, the better the general satisfaction of residents with their surroundings.
**Scores from the Council for Community and Economic Research. The higher the score, the more expensive the state.
***Health care scores came from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. The higher the score, the better the health care quality.
****Delaware's sunshine was approximated by combining the average of Maryland and New Jersey.
