Lafayette featured in America's 100 Best Places to Retire book

From the retirement relocation experts at Where to Retire magazine comes the definitive guide to the country's top cities for retirement. The road to retirement may take many turns before you find the right place to call home, but with this fifth edition of "America's 100 Best Places to Retire," you have an indispensible guide to diverse choices across the country, from small, undiscovered havens to large urban centers.

"We believe that retirement locale scouting is fun," said Annette Fuller, managing editor of Where to Retire and co-editor of the book. "This volume helps the process with its well-researched profiles of 100 cities that retirees love. Where to Retire magazine has been dedicated solely to discovering these destinations since 1992, so the knowledge in the pages is deep and wide. It takes you on a coast-to-coast trip like no other book can do."

The book includes locales that have all been featured destinations in Where to Retire magazine. Each city profile, written by an experienced author who is familiar with the area, combines local knowledge, extensive research and in-depth interviews with retirees who have already made the move. A quick facts data box within each profile sums up information on taxes, climate, walkability, housing and health care.

The 100 cities are all distinct, said Fuller, yet they have many qualities in common that active baby boomers and retirees enjoy: vibrant downtowns, ongoing education classes, volunteer or part-time work opportunities, walkable neighborhoods, excellent health care, non-extreme weather and advantageous tax situations.

The book is organized alphabetically by city name, but you can also find locales listed by state, displayed on a U.S. map and categorized into 10, Top 10 lists - best art towns, best beach towns, best college towns, best four-season towns, best lake towns, best low-cost edens, best main street towns, best mountain towns, best small towns and best undiscovered havens.

"America's 100 Best Places to Retire" is available at Amazon.com or WhereToRetire.com.
