Magazine features Danville as place to retire
HOUSTON - Where to Retire magazine, the only magazine in America geared to helping people with retirement relocation, has selected Danville to profile as a top retirement spot in its January/February issue.
According to editor Alan Fox, Danville has many of the qualities that are important to today's retirees.
"Historic and scenic Danville is a Kentucky Certified Retirement Community. Full of country charm with rolling hills, sprawling horse farms and recreational opportunities on lakes, rivers and streams, Danville is ideal for nature lovers. Centre College and the Community Arts Center draw entertainment like touring Broadway shows, concerts, lectures and numerous festivals. Several area colleges also offer continuing education classes. With five districts on the National Register of Historic Places, a thriving cultural scene and plenty of outdoor activities, Danville offers retirees a well-rounded lifestyle," Fox said.
Each year, 700,000 Americans move to new towns to retire.
Generally healthier, better educated and more affluent than retirees who stay put, relocating retirees bring significant economic benefits to their new states and home towns. Nationally, two dozen states and hundreds of towns seek to attract retirees as a source of economic development.
Where to Retire magazine was launched in 1992 with the goal of helping its readers find the ideal place to retire. It has a national circulation of 220,000.
