Taos named 'Best Place To Retire' - What's New!

Posted Aug 4, 2017

Taos, NM 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. The city is profiled in the September/October 2017 issue, available nationwide on August 8.

Where to Retire Editor Annette Fuller said Taos possesses qualities important to today’s retirees. “Even 1,000 years ago, Taos was breaking the mold. Its Taos Pueblo, a multistory adobe structure, is the oldest continuously inhabited community in the United States. Nurturing creativity is in Taos’ DNA, as artists like Georgia O’Keeffe and authors such as D.H. Lawrence found inspiration here. Diversity and even quirkiness are welcome in this part of northern New Mexico, and hiking the trails along the Rio Grande and on Wheeler Peak exhilarate the mind and body,” Fuller 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 bringing significant economic benefits to their new states and hometowns.

Where to Retire, now celebrating 25 years in print, is published six times a year. The magazine covers the best retirement regions, towns and master-planned communities, and recently released its 10th biennial list naming the 50 best master-planned communities in the U.S.
