If you're looking to settle down into retirement in the great state of Florida, you should add the following towns to your list.

Florida is a well-known destination for many retirees and it's easy to see why. From the sandy beaches, beautiful weather, and a ton of outdoor activities, there's always easy to find something to do or just sit back and relax.

One website made a list of the best places to retire in the United States. Here's what the four in Florida were.

4. Daytona Beach, FL. This place was ranked number 7 on the list!

The website says, "Among the many advantages of living here is that residents have access to more than just Daytona Beach itself. Creating the metro area, adjoining towns and communities like Port Orange, South Daytona, Ponce Inlet, Ormond Beach, and Holly Hill provide a range of living choices at various prices."

3. Naples, FL. This place was ranked 6th on the list.

"Long known as a preferred retirement spot for the rich, powerful, and cold-averse, the greater Naples and Marco Island area supplies pristine beaches, sprawling golf courses, and fine dining and shopping. Closer to the area’s rural interior, meanwhile, cattle graze and seasonal workers pick tomatoes in the fields around Immokalee, a farming community an hour’s drive outside of Naples," the website says.

This place was also ranked as the safest place to live in the United States!

2. Tampa, FL. This place was ranked 4th on the list!

The website says, "Residents of the Tampa Bay area enjoy both a laid-back beach lifestyle and the amenities of a large metropolitan area, including professional sports teams, museums, and an array of entertainment and dining options."

Not only is Tampa a great place to retire, but it's also one of the best places to live in general. It was ranked as the 39th best place to live in the United States!

1. Pensacola, FL. This place was ranked as the 3rd best place to retire in the United States!

"The region's warm climate and the desirable setting isn't the only reason people choose to live in Pensacola. The military has a relatively small, though very significant, presence here. Naval Air Station Pensacola draws military families to the area. Residents also find employment in the health care, higher education, and, of course, tourism sectors," the website goes on to say.

This place also cracked the top 20 safest places to live in the United States!

Those are some of the places in Florida that have been ranked as the best places to retire in the United States.
