LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) – Nevada has become an increasingly popular state for retirees to spend their sunset years, but a new study says The Silver State isn’t the best place to retire. Far from it, actually.

Very far from it.

The report from Bankrate.com ranked all 50 states using five categories and Nevada placed 45th overall

The website factored in affordability, crime, culture, weather and wellness. Out of those five categories, Nevada ranked highest in culture (17th), lowest in wellness (48th), and unimpressive in weather (27th), affordability (34th), and crime (40th).

States in the Midwest fared best in the survey, with Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and South Dakota deemed the best places retire.

The only states that placed worse than Nevada were Washington, Illinois, Alaska, New York and- the absolute worst state for retirees-

Maryland.
