Decorah has been ranked the second best place to retire in Iowa by smartasset.com, a website designed to help the public make wise financial decisions.
The Smart Asset study considered four main factors: taxes (both income and sales tax), the number of doctors’ offices and opportunities for recreation and social life.
Ranking first was Algona. Third through tenth were Manchester, Washington, Grinnell, Spencer, Cherokee, Carroll, Pella and Sheldon.
