Nevada City and Grass Valley have been selected as top retirement destinations by Where to Retire, the only magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions. The cities are profiled in the January/February 2015 issue, available nationwide on Dec. 16, 2014.
Where to Retire Editor Annette Fuller said Nevada City and Grass Valley possess qualities important to today’s retirees. “Nevada City could be a movie set to show the Victorian era; it’s that authentic,” Fuller said. “Nearby Grass Valley has more modern amenities. The mountain backdrop presents some of California’s most glorious fall foliage. The area has been charming people since the gold rushers came in the mid-1800s.”
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.
