Rich in history, arts, music, and culture, Philadelphia has long been considered one of American’s best cities for young people. Now, it’s being hailed as a great place for retiring baby boomers as well.

According to CNN Money, Philadelphia is one of the 25 best places in the United States to retire. The city is slower-paced and more affordable than the Big Apple and its small city blocks are pedestrian friendly. Additionally, the city boasts a number of great restaurants and shops as well as several wonderful museums and theaters.

For retirees looking forward to spending time outdoors, Philadelphia also has plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities including the Schuylkill River Trail and Fairmont Park. If that weren’t enough, Philadelphia also has a great public transportation network, several adult education programs, and excellent access to good healthcare. Feeling the love? Perhaps Philadelphia is the place to call home when you decide to call it a career.

I would have never guessed Philly as one of the top places to retire. Now I know! It's nice to know 101 Mobility is there, too. All the more reason to go!

I've heard nothing but positive feedback from our renting customers that have used any of the 101 Mobility locations. Apparently, they know what they're doing!!!
