Houston, TX (October 11, 2016) – Myrtle Beach, SC, has been selected a top retirement destination by Where to Retire, the only magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions. Myrtle Beach is profiled in a feature titled “7 Low-Cost Cities” in the November/December 2016 issue, available nationwide today.
Where to Retire Editor Annette Fuller said the annual low-cost cities feature is for those who want un-plundered financial accounts and no shortchange in lifestyle. “Many places across the country have qualities and amenities that appeal to retirees, but cost of living often is a primary factor in the relocation decision. Our seven cities, including Myrtle Beach, keep retirees busy with cultural events, varied shopping and dining experiences, and outdoor adventure, without a heavy cost-of-living burden,” 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.

The magazine covers the best retirement regions, towns and master-planned communities, and has a national circulation of 200,000.
