If you’re looking to retire and live in Michigan, one of the best cities to retire in happens to be right in the Mitten. The staff at U.S. News & World Report recently published their list of the best cities to retire in America. Most of the cities, as you would expect, are in Florida, where it’s warmer throughout the winter. But, it’s pretty cool that Michigan is on the list.

U.S. News & World Report ranked Ann Arbor, Michigan, the No. 9 best city to retire in America. Not bad! Other Michigan cities on the list included Grand Rapids (21), Kalamazoo (38), Lansing (60), Detroit (81) and Flint (92).

Here are the Top 10 cities to retire in, via U.S. News:

Sarasota, Florida
Naples, Florida
Daytona Beach, Florida
Melbourne, Florida
Lancaster, Pennsylvania
Tampa, Florida
