Notorious for having the best cheesesteaks in America, the historic city of Philadelphia is filled with endless activities and entertainment for aging adults.

Many age-specific diseases and illnesses occur when people surpass the age of 65 such as arthritis, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, among others. One of the benefits of living in America’s 6th largest metropolitan area is having world-class healthcare at your fingertips. Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Abington Hospital, and Christiana Hospitals are just several of the many medical centers that specialize in adult specialties. Fox Chase Cancer Center and Eastern Regional Medical Center are two of the most renown cancer hospitals in the Northeastern United States.
Retirement affords many opportunities that we did not have while working. Travel is one of them! One of the greatest things about living in Philadelphia for retirees is that you don’t have to go far to experience great vacations and travel destinations. Sure Philadelphia International Airport is in the heart of the city and is just a ticket away from a non-stop flight to all major US cities, as well as most in western Europe. Consider this though… Atlantic City and Jersey Shore are only an hour away by car, New York City is only a two-hour bus ride away (you don’t even have to worry about parking), Boston is only a 6-hour drive north, and Washington D.C, our nation’s capital, is only a two and half hour drive south. For retirees who want to save money but also finally see our beloved country, there is no better city in America to live than Philadelphia.
