Black Enterprise Magazine: Charlottesville is Second Best Place to Retire

September 11, 2008

Charlottesville makes Black Enterprise's list of the 20 best places to retire. The city ranks number 2, behind Durham North Carolina.

The ratings are based on quality of life, affordable health care and other considerations.

The magazine considered a number of factors when tabulating its
annual list of "20 Best Places to Retire" in the October issue.

The other top seven locations besides Charlottesville include: Ann
Arbor, Michigan; Nashville, Tennessee; Lexington, Kentucky;
Roswell, Georgia and Columbia, Missouri.

Many of the 20 locations are in the South, where the climate can
be milder, although a few locations are in the Upper Midwest or
Northeast, which received high scores for quality of life but lower
marks for climate.
