Wellington has been selected as a top retirement destination by Where to Retire, the only magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions. Wellington is profiled in the March/April issue, now available nationwide.
Where to Retire Editor Annette Fuller said Wellington possesses qualities important to today’s retirees.
“Known internationally for its equestrian scene, Wellington also has golf courses, community parks and easy access to the Everglades,” she said. “Recent transplants speak highly of their welcoming neighbors and the overall friendliness of the city. Proximity to Palm Beach and Boca Raton brings some glitz to retirees looking for world-class shopping, high-end restaurants and even a celebrity sighting or two at a polo club.”
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 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. The magazine is sold on various newsstands and at Barnes & Noble bookstores.
A one-year subscription to Where to Retire is $18. For more info., visit www.wheretoretire.com.
