St. Augustine Featured in Where to Retire Magazine | Real Estate
St. Augustine, FL, has been selected by Where to Retire, the only magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions, as a top retirement town and will be profiled in the September/October issue, available nationwide on August 23.
Where to Retire editor Mary Lu Abbott said St. Augustine possesses qualities important to today’s retirees. “Its colorful past as the nation’s oldest city lures many to St. Augustine, where beautiful beaches and an easygoing lifestyle add to its appeal. Retirees find it’s less crowded than some parts of Florida and not as hot, and golfers relish the area’s outstanding courses,” Abbott said.
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.
