Retire In Louisiana
Welcome to Louisiana, where our beautiful state has unique opportunities and locations perfect for retirees. Several areas within the state are classified as Certified Retirement Communities, each having a strategic plan on catering to retirees.
Ten communities are Louisiana retirement certified and include: Lafayette; Lake Charles; Natchitoches; Ruston and Lincoln Parish; Toledo Bend and Sabine Parish; Shreveport-Bossier City; Houma and Terrebonne Parish; Thibodaux; Tangipahoa Parish; and Kaplan.
Criteria that was used in selecting these communities included: climate; demographics; tax structure at the state and local levels; local housing availability; public safety and crime index; employment and volunteer opportunities; healthcare and medical services; public transportation; recreational areas; and festival and fairs, just to name a few.
