Feb. 25, 2015.  Welcome to our annual edition of the 100 Most Popular Places to Retire at Topretirements.  To develop this year's list we reviewed our traffic logs for the last 6 months of 2014. The 100 towns and cities that attracted the most interest are this year'swinners!  
Santa Rosa is the largest city in California's wine country. The area is hilly and ringed with several wonderful state parks for hiking and other outdoor activities. Armstrong Woods and Austin Creek State Parks are just some of the parks close by.   It didn't make our 2015 list  - but Santa Rosa is a contender!
 
Florida is the apple of most your eyes when it comes to interest in a place to retire.  There are 25 Florida towns and cities on our 2015 list, and that's 2 morethan last year.  Read on to learn about the 10 new towns that made the list. Pictured here: Port St. Lucie (FL), a new addition to the top 100.
Located in southwestern North Carolina on the border with GA, TN, and Sc, this small town  is surrounded by the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains. This small town's nickname is the Land of Waterfalls. It moved to #22 on our list this year, up from #50
In the next few years hordes of baby boomers will get invitations to their 50th high school reunions. Which leads us to our 6 question survey - we are interested in how you feel about that invitation, and whether or not you will be attending. We'll report on thefindings soon, so please take it!
