Houston, TX (July 31, 2018) – Huntsville, AL, has been selected a top retirement destination by Where to Retire, the only magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions. Huntsville is profiled in a feature titled “8 Fall Foliage Cities” in the September/October 2018 issue, available nationwide on Aug. 7.
Where to Retire Editor Annette Fuller said that these eight locales appeal to retirees who relish the blazing shades of fall. “Most tree leaves change color once a year and we planet Earth denizens are lucky enough to see it,” Fuller said. “High-tech Huntsville offers up more than research and aerospace employers; hiking and biking paths traverse the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, and a local ballet and symphony orchestra delight retirees.”
Each year, 700,000 Americans relocate to new towns to retire. Generally, relocating retirees are healthier, better educated and more affluent than those who choose to not relocate. They bring significant economic benefits to their new states and hometowns. Nationally, two dozen states and hundreds of towns seek to attract retirees as a source of economic development.
Where to Retire, now in its 26th year of print, is published six times a year. The magazine covers the best retirement regions, towns and master-planned communities, and recently released its 10th biennial list naming the 50 best master-planned communities in the U.S. It has a national circulation of 200,000 and is sold on various newsstands and at Barnes & Noble bookstores.
