A recent trivia question we posted on our Facebook page about the “greyest” country in the world, Monaco, got us thinking about what the most elderly-friendly cities in the United States are, with the largest percentage of senior citizens, and what attracts them there, like mild temperatures and recreation options (like golf and beaches).  It’s obviously an interesting topic to us!  Well, thanks to Business InsiderRetirementhomes.com and Golflink.com, we have the numbers right here, and, sure enough, our own Naples is on the list!
