Where are the best places to retire?

Almost 100 million North American "Baby Boomers" born between 1946 and 1964 are moving toward retirement in an era of increasing affluence and mobility, and the number of relocating retirees is expected to rise substantially above the current annual rate of 1,000,000. Award winning geographer and professor at California State University Northridge, Warren Bland, Ph.D. has identified the best places to retire for you in this beautifully illustrated book, Retire in Style, 60 Outstanding Places across the USA and Canada. His first book, Retire in Style, 50 Affordable Places Across America, published in 2002, has been featured in leading newspapers and magazines nationwide including the NY Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Christian Science Monitor and US News and World Report, to name just a few.

Drawing on the professional research he has done during the last 20+ years, Bland has identified the 12 criteria most important to retirees in picking a retirement location. According to AARP, today's retirees are living longer and more actively, and are demanding a different mix of opportunities than did earlier generations. For many, upscale retirement no longer implies country club or beach resort living, but rather an active lifestyle in a safe, friendly, community that is rich in amenities. What criteria are retirees looking for when choosing a retirement town?

Retire in Style will provide readers with the information they need to make intelligent choices among 60 outstanding upscale communities widely distributed across 11 regions, 23 states and 5 Canadian provinces. Careful consideration was given to the 12 criteria covered for each place (landscape, climate, quality of life, cost of living, transportation, retail services, health care, community services, cultural activities, recreational activities, work/volunteer activities, and crime). Each place discussion includes 5-6 pages of text, plus a beautifully crafted illustration page featuring a climatic table, a 12-variable rating table, and a map of the city and its surroundings.

Current books on where to retire in North America are typically superficial or uneven in content, overly reliant on anecdotal information from local residents, and weak in their understanding of the physical environment of these places. Retire in Style, written by an economic geographer and award winning professor specializing in the regional geography of North America, takes a more objective, scientific approach to the study of places to retire and the result is a readable and informative book.
