Danville featured in Where to Retire Magazine
HOUSTON, TEXAS — Danville has been selected by Where to Retire, a magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions, as a top retirement town and will be profiled in the November-December issue. The magazine will be available nationwide on Oct. 18.
Where to Retire editor Mary Lu Abbott said Danville possesses qualities important to today’s retirees.
“Though it might appear to be a quiet, small Kentucky town, Danville is truly a hub for cultural events and learning opportunities. Centre College brings an air of sophistication to the community, which offers an active downtown and regional medical center amid beautiful bluegrass country,” 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.
Economic Development Marketing and Communications Coordinator Charlie Cox and Adam Johnson, executive director of the Convention and Vistors Bureau, worked with the publication over the summer to achieve this honor.
“We are pleased Where to Retire magazine selected Danville as a top retirement community in the country,” Cox said. “This honor, along with our recent designation by Money Magazine, is a sign that Danville is not only on the map to potential retirees across the country, but rather it’s front and center.”
