Michigan residents would love to see the Motor City rise up from the ashes to the booming city it once was.

It can be hard to picture a prosperous Detroit when the city is constantly making the top of negative lists. The latest list ranks Detroit as the 10th worst city in the county to retire in.

 The study by WalletHub compared the affordability, quality of life, health care, and other aspects for the 150 largest cities in the country.

Detroit ranked 69 for affordability, 105 for recreational activities, 137 for quality of life and 148 for health care. Those ratings scored Detroit a place in the top 10 worst states to retire in. The city ranked 141 out of 150.

The only other Michigan city to make the list was Grand Rapids. It ranked 54th overall.

Grand Rapids ranked 43 for affordability, ninth for recreational activities, 120 for quality of life and 76 for health care.

So where is the best place to retire?

According to WalletHub, it’s Tampa, Fla.

The city in the Sunshine State ranked 11 for affordability, fourth for activities, 21 for quality of life and 26 for health care.
