Dear Human,

You are an expensive creature- don’t try to deny it. And honestly, it’s not even your fault! While I was born with an extremely fluffy coat that is so fashionable and versatile that I can wear it in all 4 seasons, you need to wear 4 layers just to keep warm. If I want to vacation in a distant land, I just walk downstairs to the dog’s territory. Meanwhile, you have to fly somewhere hundreds of miles away just to sleep in an even smaller room. If you ask me, vacations are a scam.

Regardless, humans have a lot of expenses and cities are becoming more and more expensive. This begs the question, in which cities will $1 million last a retiree the longest? In a recent study, GOBanking discovered how many years and months $1 million will last during retirement by analyzing the yearly expenses (like housing, transportation, utilities, healthcare, etc.) for someone 65 or older in various cities. And while most people might be able to predict that $1 million might not last long in cities like New York or San Francisco, the cities in which $1 million lasts longer may surprise you.

  1. Memphis, Tennessee

In Memphis, Tennessee, $1 million will stretch for 24.23 years. Memphis is known for its association to the blues and rock’n’roll, and is home to the Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum and the Blues Hall of Fame.

  1. Austin, Texas

  1. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
