No. 10: Nebraska

Strengths: Low cost of living, strong health care system

In 2014, the Nebraska Tourism Commission announced a branding campaign with the message, "Visit Nebraska. Visit Nice."

So it comes as no surprise that this friendly state ranks above the national average for "well-being" based on scores from the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being index.

Retirees will also be drawn to the Cornhusker State's quality health care and low cost of living. And despite its reputation for snow, Bankrate found a lot to like about Nebraska's weather. Valentine, Nebraska, for example, gets nearly as much sunshine as Tampa, Florida, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Overall, Nebraska's weather ranked as the 21st best in the country, with good marks for sunshine and relatively mild summers.
