Single Eureka elders rejoice, your city has been named one of the nation’s 13 best for swingin’ seniors!

Estately, an online real estate search site, released its list Monday, including Eureka as one of its prime destinations for retirees for whom “school districts no longer matter,” and who want somewhere to live that’s “fun and exciting, while also remaining clean, safe and relatively affordable.”

And just what, you might ask, warranted Eureka’s inclusion among the likes of Portland, San Francisco, Yuma, Ariz. and Cape Coral, Fla.? We’ll let the fine folks at Estately fill you in:

“Move to the largest West Coast city between San Francisco and Portland and you’ll be in good company; nearly half of the population is over the age of 55, with ladies outnumbering gents by several thousand. Hit up Eureka’s Bayshore Mall for all of your retail needs, and do your shopping at the region’s only Costco.”

Apparently, weather, crime rates, services and public transportation no longer sway the senior crowd. Check out Estately’s full list here.
