Nashville Featured in Where to Retire Magazine
Houston, TX (Oct. 8, 2013) – Nashville, TN, has been selected a top retirement destination by Where to Retire, the only magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions. Nashville is one of eight cities profiled in the “8 Novel Destinations: Literary Locales to Love” feature in the November/December issue, available nationwide on Oct. 15, 2013.
Where to Retire Managing Editor Annette Fuller said these eight towns, including Nashville, appeal to retirees who seek an environment steeped in culture and history. “Writers and bookworms will find an enriching arts community in each of these towns. The works of famed authors, such as Nashville’s Robert Penn Warren, are preserved and honored at various museums and universities, where retirees can participate in writing seminars and other cultural events. These locales are not just for literary fans, but for retirees who seek creative inspiration in whatever their passion may be,” Fuller 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.
