    #1. Tennessee

    Credit the fact that Tennessee has the nation's second-lowest cost of living (just behind Oklahoma, which didn't make the retiree havens list) and that its state and local tax burdens are third-lowest in the nation and you have the keys to why it ranked #1 on BankRate's best states for retirement analysis. Its weather is also nice and it boasts excellent access to health care.
