Retire in Bloomington

Bloomington is the perfect place for a rewarding retirement experience.

As a vibrant community with a world-class university, the opportunities for creative engagement, civic participation, and encore careers are broad and plentiful. As one of five national Community AGEnda sites, Bloomington is on track to create the country's first "lifetime community district" along downtown's multi-use B-Line Trail. Collaboration among government, private, and civic sectors is bringing forward exciting new options in housing, health & wellness, and cultural & social life — the Bloomington Retirement Guide describes this emerging vision.

Below, you'll find additional local information resources about housing, healthcare, lifelong learning, volunteerism, encore careers, and quality of life in our community.
