Choose a College Town for Retirement

by Joe Lubow




Retirement can be a time of growth, or adventure, or complete relaxation. Where you spend your retirement years, no matter how you define them, has to be in a place that fulfills your ideal and meets your changing needs.

Choose a College Town introduces you to sixty-four college and/or university towns in twenty-nine states across the United States. Each town offers a distinct community, its major focus being at least one college or university that offers opportunities for adult learners. In addition, the towns have quality medical care, a thriving cultural center, and a vibrant cultural life.

You'll discover lively, interesting towns across the climate spectrum. Essential information about the resources in these areas allows you to make informed decisions about selecting an affordable, academically focused environment that could enhance your concept of retirement.
