Although Niagara Falls, NY, is home to one of the wonders of the world, apparently it's not the ideal home for retirees. has released a new study that ranks the major tourist attraction to be the number one worst city to retire.

Bank rate's study focuses on 9 categories:

  • Crime
  • Taxes
  • Weather
  • Well-being
  • Healthcare costs
  • Healthcare quality
  • Cultural Vitality
  • Walkability
  • Cost of living
