Richmond Featured in Where to Retire Magazine

Houston, TX (Aug. 1, 2017) – Richmond, VA, has been selected as a top retirement destination by Where to Retire, the only magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions. The city is profiled in the September/October 2017 issue, available nationwide on Aug. 8.

Where to Retire Editor Annette Fuller said Richmond possesses qualities important to today’s retirees. “The Virginia capital city is rooted in American history, but its revitalization as a flourishing, cultured locale is unmistakable. Its opera, symphony and theaters have healthy ticket sales, and trips to the beach, the mountains and Colonial Williamsburg are easy jaunts. The University of Richmond hosts lifelong-learning classes, and retirees kayak on the James River and bicycle on nearby paths,” 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.

Where to Retire, now celebrating 25 years in 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. A one-year subscription is $18. All material in the magazine is protected by copyright law, and reproduction of content requires the permission of the magazine.
