Anderson has been selected a top retirement destination by "Where to Retire" magazine's November/December 2018 issue.

Anderson is profiled in a feature titled “8 Likable Low-Cost Cities” in the issue, available nationwide on Tuesday. Where to Retire Editor Annette Fuller said that these eight budget-friendly locales are attractive to retirees.

“This cross-country lineup of beauty and appeal proves that charm doesn’t have to come at a high price,” Fuller said. “Downtown Anderson boasts a seasonal farmers market, restaurants and First Friday events, while some retirees gather at Carolina Wren Park for concerts or at Lake Hartwell for boating excursions. Retirees can attend classes at Anderson University’s Lifelong Learning Institute or head 15 miles northwest to Clemson University.”

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, now in its 26th year of print, is published six times a year.
