3/9/2007 - Asheville Named Great Retirement City!
by Heather Judge
In his Retirement Migration in America, Robert F. Longino suggests these communities as examples of up-and-coming retirement areas that are not yet on the national radar:
- Charleston, S.C. If you can put up with the humidity, this Southern belle of a city offers very low housing prices in a seaside location with tons of history.
- Asheville, N.C. Known as the Paris of the South, this western North Carolina town of about 70,000 is renowned as a spot for the arts, culture and diversity. The housing costs and cost of living are below average.
- Cedar City, Utah. Cedar City is a great small western town, home to very reasonable home prices, Southern Utah University, the Utah Shakespearean Festival and a great climate.
- Boerne, Texas. An undiscovered spot not far from San Antonio and Austin's cultural scene. Low housing prices, lots of outdoor activities, a historical downtown and a relaxed, ranching lifestyle make this a prime spot.
