This is the only guide you'll need to today's top retirement towns.

Whether your relocation is around the corner or years away, this book is your gateway to 100 cities handpicked by the editors of Where to Retire magazine, the authority on retirement relocation since 1992.

Delve inside and you'll find an assortment of possibilities in 34 states, written by great travel writers with a keen eye for the details that take a place from worth visiting to worth staying. Each city profile combines local knowledge, extensive research and in-depth interviews with retirees who have already made their own retirement relocation moves. You'll learn what they discovered along the way -- the positive as well as the negative. Also included is data on housing costs, health care availability, taxes, cost of living, education, transportation and additional information sources to help you compare and choose.

The book also features lists of the 10 best arts towns, low-cost edens, lake towns, beach towns, small towns, college towns, mountain towns, undiscovered havens, four-season towns and Main Street towns.
