Portland the worst place to retire?

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

It may be bike, beer and food friendly — but Oregon isn't the place you want to spend your golden years. That's according to Yahoo Finance.

The site listed Oregon as the worst place to retire because of its crime rate, state and local taxes and the rising cost of living. According to the Yahoo article, all are higher than the national average.

Alaska, Washington, California and Wisconsin round out the bottom five places to retire.
