Planning to retire? Even people who reach their senior years would still like to engage in some dynamic activities than just sitting in a rocking chair. Exercise, however, is not just enough. People needed to be in an environment conducive for an active retirement. So, here are states that support that cause.

Wilmington, Delaware. According to Smart Asset, Delaware accounts as the top choice for active retirees. Wilmington receives a walk score of 72 percent. Moreover, dozens of people enjoy boating, hiking or running along the Delaware Outdoor Trail, which is considered as one of the top spots to go once you want to stretch out and bask in the sun. Head to the Cape Henlopen State Park for some fresh air.

Missoula, Montana. This state is called the most fitness-friendly place in the country. And why not? Active seniors can go walking, running, hiking or biking along the trails or road. Not to mention, if people want to go camping, there are plenty of spots in Missoula where retirees can go horseback riding or kayaking in the waters.

Bethesda, Maryland. If you're not into strenuous activities but want to flex some muscles, try golfing. Who says it's not called an active sport? Bethesda has only a population of 100,000 people, but hey, they have over six golf courses for active retirees. It's obviously a golfer's paradise.

Rockville, Maryland, In Rockville, it's better to retire and stay active together. Since the state has the most number or retirement centers, there's more chance for seniors to be in a community where they can belong. Meanwhile, according to CNBC, seniors can bike or hike along the state's capital.

Newport Beach, California. Because it's near to the coastal waters, active retirees can enjoy splashing on the beach or just go on jogging or biking along Newport. There are boat rentals if seniors want to go and explore marine animals in their habitat. Along with that, they can fish and go whale watching all day. And in any case they want a drink, there's Newport Beach Vineyards and Winery, to begin with.
