PHOENIX — For American adults nearing retirement age, Arizona is on their mind.

A new study finds the Grand Canyon State is one of the most popular destinations for older adults who plan to relocate for retirement.

The report from real estate website PropertyShark found Arizona is the second-most popular place for relocating retirees, with 10% of those surveyed saying they want to retire to Arizona.

That's ahead of other popular retirement enclaves such as Tennessee (8%), South Carolina (8%), California (6%) and Texas (5%), but trails retirement front-runner Florida.
