Here are the ten best places in Illinois that Niche – a research site that helps people  explore what a place is really like – determined would suit you if and once you retire. Niche came to their conclusion by evaluating several factors that may interest retirees. These include similar age population, housing costs, property taxes, crime rates, weather and access to things like restaurants, golf courses and doctors.

You’d think that Northfield, Highland Park, or Deerfield would match the profile. Strangely enough, Niche omitted these suburbs.

Niche analyzed more than 4,200 towns and ranked more than 1,600.
