“Williamsburg residents get the best of two centuries. Retirees can enjoy the perks of modern-day America, complete with fine dining, art museums and theme parks, and in the same day have an 18th-century adventure in Colonial Williamsburg. The College of William & Mary adds to the sophistication and culture and offers extensive leisure-learning opportunities,” Abbott said.

Each year, 700,000 Americans relocate to new towns to retire. Generally, relocating retirees are healthier, better educated and more affluent than retirees 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.
