Whether you’re about to retire or still dreaming, here’s our list of some of the best places in the South to set your sights.
Choosing a place to retire isn’t easy. It has to be a place you love, where you’ll learn new things, create new memories and make lasting friendships. The good news? The South has you covered, whether you dream of retiring in a bustling city or a sleepy mountain town, or if your idea of heaven on earth includes golf courses or beach views or charming streets lined with shops. We’ve put together a list of a few of our favorite spots, focusing on towns that have unique amenities, a low cost of living, opportunities for volunteering, part-time work and continued learning. Also important? A stable housing market, access to medical care, and an airport or train station close-by for ease of traveling and the all-important visits from family and grandkids.
