PORT ST. LUCIE – Port St. Lucie’s making national news again. This time the city is set to be featured in the upcoming issue of Where to Retire Magazine, available June 14 (today).
Editor Annette Fuller said Port St. Lucie possesses qualities important to today’s retirees.
“Port St. Lucie, on Florida’s southeastern coast, is a less expensive alternative than its neighbor cities of Vero Beach to the north and West Palm Beach to the south. It lies on the state’s Treasure Coast, where optimistic beachgoers still try to spy a glint of gold in the sand, washed up from Spanish ships that sunk in 1715. Master-planned communities pull friendships out of strangers,” Fuller said.
According to Where to Retire, 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.
The magazine, which launched in 1992 with the goal of helping its readers find the ideal place to retire, is published six times a year. The magazine covers the best retirement regions, towns and master-planned communities, and has a national circulation of 200,000. The magazine is sold on various newsstands and at Barnes & Noble bookstores.
Congrats, Port St. Lucie! We look forward to seeing the piece.
