Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Look out Key West, Florida and Scottsdale, Arizona, your retirement "cred" just took a hit.

Bankrate is out with its annual retirement destinations list and North Dakota is number 10. Florida is 19th, Arizona, 33, and Minnesota, 43. The annual survey takes a look at health care access, crime rates, cost of living and of course, climate.

Despite our longest winter since 1881, North Dakota beat out some of the hottest tourist destinations. The retirement survey includes more than just fun in the sun.

Brian Arett, Valley Senior Services: “Aspect of ND is tremendous. Deliver system home meals and senior centers are more accessible to people and that enhances quality of life when health to fail.”

One other mid-western state made the top 10. Nebraska was number nine.
