Now that 2015 is here, we are excited to share a new accolade for our area! Money Magazine has just named Raleigh in it’s Top 5 Cities for Retirement! The magazine used “small cities”, or those that are considered to have the perks of an urban area without the big-city drawbacks.
Here’s what Money Magazine had to say about Raleigh and Why it Stands Out
“This state capital’s thriving economy and proximity to top universities have long made it a prime relocation destination. And recently more of those new faces have had a few wrinkles: from 2000 to 2010 the city’s population of 55- to 64-year-olds shot up by 97%, according to the Brookings Institution. It’s not hard to see the draw: Raleigh provides a big-city feel with a low cost of living; mild, four-season weather; and, thanks to all those medical schools, world-class health care.”
