What topretirements.com said:
 
"Green Valley is a sprawling area south of Tucson near the border with Mexico. It covers a vast area with all kinds of communities and developments – in fact it has 59 different home owner associations. Retirees like its relatively low cost of living, warm winter climate, the nearby Santa Rita Mountains, and the extensive non-profit Green Valley recreation complex."
 
"In gaining the #1 spot on our list, Green Valley was viewed over 12,000 times in the first six months of 2017 by Topretirements.com visitors. That is 4,000 more than #2 Prescott and almost double what previous winner Asheville, NC (#3) experienced."
