Where to Retire magazine, the only magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions, has again selected Three Virginia college towns — Williamsburg, Charlottesville and Fredericksburg –to profile in its July/ August 2012 issue.
Where to Retire editor Mary Lu Abbott said Williamsburg possesses many qualities important to today’s retirees.
“Boomers gravitate toward college towns for many reasons – spectator sports, cultural events and continuing-education opportunities, to name a few. The college towns in Virginia, including Williamsburg, Charlottesville and Fredericksburg are some of the oldest in the country, and they have a celebrated place in American history.
Colonial Williamsburg, the Christopher Wren Association at the College of William & Mary and nearby historic towns provide opportunities for lifelong learning, and when it’s time for a study break, retirees can escape to Virginia Beach, only an hour away.
“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.
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.
