State College has been rated one of the top retirement destinations in the sixth edition of “America’s 100 Best Places to Retire.”
State College was the only city from Pennsylvania on the list and was listed as one of the top 10 best college towns.
Editors and staff spend 11 months researching more than 800 cities and each profile was combined with extensive research, local knowledge and interviews with 670 retirees.
“This book allows readers to tap into the wisdom of hundreds of relocated retirees, including those who moved to State College, one of our 10 best college towns,” said Annette Fuller, Where to Retire Editor. “This volume will get you dreaming of your retirement and where you might land. But the stories also bring you past wistful dreams and into the realm of real research, including information on weather, taxes, downtown attractions and even the caveats of each city.”
The chosen cities vary in size, lifestyle, climate and each falls into one of 10 categories that focuses on the cities defining feature, such as beaches, mountains, low costs, four seasons and appealing downtowns.
