Ranked as number 19 in U.S. News' Best Places to Retire in 2020, it's no wonder that almost one out of every five people in Melbourne is over 65. The beautiful climate, with an average temperature of 74.5 degrees, combined with being known as one of the premier Atlantic beach destinations in the country, makes the city an attractive choice. Located only 30 miles from Orlando, residents have access to all of the amenities of a large city without the bustle. The city also boasts its own attractions, such as the Eau Gallie Arts District, an entertaining mix of art galleries, restaurants and shops, and the Joy and Gordon Patterson Botanical Garden where pleasant walks along palm-tree lined trails and natural water features provide an enjoyable pastime.

According to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2019, average assisted living costs in Melbourne are $3,800 monthly, less than the national average of $4,051. In-home care, adult day care and nursing home care cost $3,813, $1,408 and $8,730 respectively. Adding to Melbourne's appeal, the cost of living in the city is about 9.1% lower than the national average. Since Florida does not have a state income tax, Social Security benefits and pension income are not taxed.

Note: Assisted living cost data wasn’t available for Melbourne, so data for the closest the Palm Bay area was used.
