I live in San Francisco. It’s very nice here, but… there’s this option to consider:
if I relocate, by moving just 4 miles north, across the Golden Gate Bridge, I’ll be sequestered in the best longevity-enhancing county - for men - in the United States.
Marin County offers an average male life span of 81.6 years, tops in the red-white-and-blue, and considerably higher than, say, McDowell County, West Virginia, where life expectancy for males is a measly 66.3 years.
Marin is an excellent place for elderly ladies, too. The life expectancy of a Marin matron is 85.1 years, just .9 years less than a rival Florida county that offers the best Fountain-of-Youth for females.
I was quite surprised to find such huge variability in the USA, and delighted that nearby Marin is so conducive to longevity.
The 81.6 years Marin County promises males like me is longer than any national average in the world, easily surpassing the 79.49 years offered by Iceland to its men.
For women, Marin is not quite as impressive, because Japanese females live almost 87 years on average, notes a 2010 United Nations chart. Aside from that, the Marin digit beats all contenders, with French women living second-longest at 84.32 years.
Isn’t Marin just… too expensive, though? Because the average house costs $820,000?
Best bargain is to get a houseboat, and anchor it either offshore, or in the old bohemian berth, the “Gate Co-op.”

You’ll discover there that urban areas are generally the best place to live for longevity - this rather surprised me. Besides the San Francisco Bay Area, there’s also great longevity in Seattle, Portland, New York City, Boston, Washington DC, Minneapolis, and other highly-populated areas. If you insist on living in wide open spaces - try Wyoming, especially the north central area.
You’ll also find out that USA lifespans have elevated considerably in the last 20 years. Good-News!
