The best county to retire in in all of California offers some of the most gorgeous views, weather, and outdoor actives.

According to a list compiled by Stacker, the best California county to retire in is Amador. Amador County is located just southeast of Sacramento near Folsom, and boasts an abundance of leisure activities and fair temperatures. It is ranked high due to its accessibility for retirees, but received a low score for cost of living, as most homes for sale are on the pricy side.

Stacker compiled their data based on a report from Niche. Here is what Niche had to say about putting together the data to find the best counties to retire:
