Charlottesville has been selected as a top retirement destination.
Where To Retire, a magazine geared specifically toward helping people with retirement relocation, says the city is one of eight “Dynamic Locales For Walkable Living”.
Where to Retire Editor Mary Lu Abbott said Charlottesville possesses qualities important to today’s retirees.
“More people than ever are making retirement relocation decisions based on how often they can ditch the car and go places by foot. Many towns, including Charlottesville, have neighborhoods where walking is not only a health benefit, but a way to connect with neighbors and nature and lessen the strain on your wallet and the environment,” Abbott said.
In the past few years, the Charlottesville area has received many awards and distinctions such as “Locavore Capital of the World,” “#1 Agri-Tourism Destination,” and “#4 Most Romantic City in America”.
