Houston, TX (April 5, 2012) – Nacogdoches, TX, has been selected by Where to Retire, the only
magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions, as a top
retirement destination and will be profiled in the May/June 2012 issue, available nationwide on
April 17, 2012.
Where to Retire editor Mary Lu Abbott said Nacogdoches possesses qualities important
to today’s retirees. “Though it calls itself the oldest city in Texas, this Piney Woods town has
kept up with the times. Stephen F. Austin State University enlivens the community with culture
and sporting events, and the local medical facilities operate with the newest technology. The
redbrick streets and family-owned shops of downtown attract boomers and retirees, who are
finding that Nacogdoches embraces newcomers and welcomes them into the community life,”
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.
