Retire, But Where?

Article from Certified Residential Specialist Magazine 2011 November/December  issue.

Gainesville, GA., was named the best place to live and retire affordably by AARP, a nonprofit for older adults. The city of 36,000 residents was called the perfect destination for an active retirement in part because of its proximity to abundant water sports and other activities on nearby Lake Lanier, 15 golf courses and shipping. Georgia also does not have a state tax on Social Security. Other cities that made the list include:

  • Columbus, IN
  • Harrisburg, PA
  • Portland, Maine
  • Ithaca, N.Y.
  • Tulsa, OK
  • Midland, TX
  • Winchester, VA
  • Wenatchee, WA
  • Cheyenne, WY
