Nacogdoches Featured in Where to Retire Magazine
Posted 04 - 05 - 2012

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,”

Abbott said.

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.

Where to Retire magazine, launched in 1992 with the goal of helping its readers find the

ideal place to retire, is now celebrating its 20th anniversary. Published six times a year, the

magazine covers the best retirement regions, towns and master-planned communities, and has a

national circulation of 200,000. A one-year subscription to Where to Retire is $18.00 (a 39%

savings from the newsstand price). The magazine is also sold on various newsstands and at

Barnes & Noble bookstores. For a magazine subscription, please visit or
