South Dakota is the eighth best state in the nation for retirement, according to a list by Bankrate. Low taxes and low crime rate are credited to South Dakota being a worthy candidate for retirees.

“Although temperatures in South Dakota can get downright frosty, retirees may warm up to the idea of living here based on the money they can save. South Dakota boasts the third-lowest tax burden in the country – a big draw for penny-pinchers.”
