Charleston Ranks Third in Best Places to Retire in the USA (and #1 for fishing opportunities)
After decades of hard work, you deserve a break. A long, affordable, easy-living break. We know just the place to savor this new, exciting stage of life.
The latest from WalletHub ranks Charleston as a top retirement destination in terms of affordability, activities available, healthcare, and overall quality of life. Each was evaluated using dozens of relevant metrics with the assumption retirees will rely on a fixed income.
Only topped by two cities to our south, Charleston performed strong in the overall quality of life ranking, likely due to an abundance of…well, everything. Culture on every corner, world-class dining, and a nature environment unlike anywhere in the world.
Speaking of, the study also found Charleston to have the most fishing facilities per capita of anywhere in the United States. Take note, anglers!
Try our little corner of the Lowcountry: Summerville
As a part of the tri-county Charleston region, Summerville provides proximity to all the wonder of Charleston, with some extra small-town perks.
The “Flowertown in the Pines” boasts gardens of vibrant azaleas, more than 700 historic buildings, and an increasingly fabulous selection of places to dine and shop. Plus, farmers markets, festivals, live music, wine tastings…you know, the good stuff. And did you know Summerville is the birthplace of sweet tea? What could be more charming (and southern) than that?
