Philadelphia is Age-Friendly
To be exact, we are actually the most age-friendly city out of the US' Top 10 Largest Cities.
But what does that even mean, and why is it important? Well for starters, more seniors are now staying in Philadelphia instead of relocating for warmer climates and quieter communities, studies show. Health care is improving, people are living longer, and they are deciding to stay in the city.
Philadelphia is a wise choice for adventurous seniors because it offers a lot: historical attractions, diverse culture, tons of restaurants, flexible housing arrangements, and multiple public transportation options. Plus, most local seniors probably still have family in the area, which gives them even more of a reason to stay. Top it all off with walkable streets and lots of parks, and you have a very livable, affordable city for seniors.
