A new report gives high marks to Cheyenne and Casper for promoting and enabling successful aging.

Cheyenne ranked 9th overall and Casper ranked 20th out of 252 small metros that were graded in the Milken Institute report.

The institute did its report on the basis that most individuals want to age at home and not be uprooted from their communities.

It examined how well U.S. cities are providing the infrastructure, amenities and opportunities both to serve, and benefit from, the country’s fastest-growing age segment.
