December 5, 2016 — A few years back a reporter asked for our opinion about college town retirements. Her questions concerned the pros and cons, reasons why to choose one, top places to retire with colleges, etc. What we told her is that there are a lot of really good reasons to consider retiring in a college town, along with a few considerations why not to consider them. That conversation sparked a 4 part series at Topretirements on the topic, which most of our newer Members have probably never seen. We think you might find the series useful in help you figure out if a college town retirement makes sense for you. It will give you lots of great college towns to consider, plus some recommendations and resources in these towns that will help you get the most out of the experience.
