Drawbacks of Retiring in Nevada

By    |   Wednesday, 24 Feb 2016 07:31 PM

Although it is hard to find drawbacks about retiring in a state that is as beautiful and diverse as Nevada, there are a few aspects of living there that may not be so desirable.

Retirement in Nevada or any state is a big deal, especially when it entails relocation from another state, so retirees should consider both benefits and drawbacks of a new location before making a decision.

Here are some of the aspects that may not be as favorable when it comes to retiring in the Silver State.

1. Weather

Nevada is the driest state in the country, and can be both hot and cold. People who live close to the Mojave Desert can be subject to temperatures that top 100 degrees during some parts of the summer months. On the other hand, temperatures in the northeast part of the state dip into the 30s on average during winter months. It's a bit of a state of extremes when it comes to weather.

2. Cost of Living

According to Sperling's Best Places, the cost of living index in Nevada is 102. Considering the national average is 100, retirement here is going to cost more than some other states. People who live in Nevada typically pay more for groceries, healthcare, and transportation than the average consumer.

3. It's remote

Nevada's largest city, Las Vegas, has a population of nearly 2 million people. The next biggest city, Reno, has fewer than 500,000 people. The total population of the state doesn't even reach 3 million. While you might enjoy remote living as a retiree, it may take quite a bit of time to get to an airport — and flying time — if you plan on visiting family and friends who don't live nearby.
