Where to Retire magazine, the only magazine in America geared to helping people with retirement relocation decisions, has selected Branson, MO, to profile as a top retirement spot in its March/April issue that hits newsstands and bookstores nationwide March 27, 2007.

According to Where to Retire editor, Mary Lu Abbott, Branson has many qualities that are important to today’s retirees. “Nestled in the hills of southwestern Missouri’s Ozarks, this laid-back locale provides top-notch entertainment, scenic beauty and a low cost of living. Branson’s main attraction, the “Strip,” is a seven-mile stretch of highway packed with music halls, theaters, museums, hotels and restaurants. Water lovers will enjoy three area lakes, where fishing and boating are popular activities. With a four-season climate, opportunities for volunteering or a new career, the College of the Ozarks, several large shopping malls and hundreds of churches, Branson suits many interests for retirement, ” Abbott said.

Each year, 700,000 Americans move to new towns to retire. Generally healthier, better educated and more affluent than retirees who stay put, relocation retirees 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.
