So gram and gramps sent you a selfie; they’re drinking wine on a yacht in the Tampa Bay and you’re eating a sad desk lunch and wondering how these old fogeys are living a cooler life than you are. Well, it has a lot to do with locale.

According to a new analysis by Wallethub, there’s a reason they’re having a blast in Florida. A look at the data might make you consider following them there.

Knowing that many Americans are unsure how and when they’ll be able to retire (nearly four in 10 workers have little to nothing saved for their golden years), Wallethub highlighted the cities where we can live out our post-career lives affordably but without sacrificing day-to-day perks.

Analysts compared 150 of the most populated U.S. cities across four key factors affordability, activities, quality of life and health care assigning cities a rank for each, which helped calculate an overall score.

The winners are as follows:

1. Orlando, Florida

2. Tampa, Florida

3. Miami, Florida

4. Scottsdale, Arizona

5. Atlanta, Georgia

6. Salt Lake City, Utah

7. Honolulu, Hawaii

8. Denver, Colorado

9. Austin, Texas

10. Las Vegas, Nevada
