          Lexington has been selected by Where to Retire, the only magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions, as a top retirement destination.

          Lexington is profiled as one of eight cities in “Farmers Markets -- A Fun Link to the Local Scene” in the March/April issue, available nationwide on Feb. 19, 2013.

Where to Retire Editor Mary Lu Abbott said Lexington possesses qualities important to today’s retirees. “With stalls supplying seasonal produce and handmade crafts, farmers markets provide a bounty to visitors and residents. Across the country, these eight towns, including Lexington, offer farm-fresh options, as well as a sense of community. Residents connect with growers to learn more about the land and help local farming operations stay in business,” Abbott 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.

Where to Retire magazine, 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. A one-year subscription to Where to Retire is $18 (a 39 percent savings from the newsstand price). The magazine is also sold on various newsstands and at Barnes & Noble bookstores. For a magazine subscription, visit WhereToRetire.com or send a check or money order to: Vacation Publications, Attn: Where to Retire, 5851 San Felipe Street, Suite 500, Houston, TX 77057.  Phone orders: (713) 974-6903.
