Houston, TX (June 10, 2014) – Natchitoches, LA, has been selected a top retirement destination by Where to Retire, the only magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions. Natchitoches is one of eight cities profiled in a feature titled “8 Fishing Cities: Great Lures Across the U.S.” in the July/August issue, available nationwide on June 17, 2014.
Where to Retire Editor Annette Fuller said these eight cities, including Natchitoches, appeal to retirees who dream of spending their days out on the water. “Our eight locales offer a full range of fishing, from fly, ice, freshwater and saltwater. Typically, cities with good fishing have other appealing outdoor adventures -- hiking and biking trails, national parks, and festivals, to name a few -- all set against the natural beauty of the area,” Fuller said.
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.
