Dear Readers. We need your help on one small thing. There is no cost to you for this eNewsletter and our website, Topretirements. To return the favor we are asking you to spend less than 5 minutes filling out this brief survey
. We'll use the results to try to improve your experience here. That's one reward, but an even more tangible benefit is the drawing we are having for 3 free copies of "101 Best Outdoor Towns", a book we think you will enjoy. The survey is limited to 100 respondents. Put your email or phone in Question 9 so we can contact you if you win one of the books. Thanks.
If you have heard of the Battle of Bull Run (there were actually 2 of them), Manassas will be familiar. Although now part of the Washington D.C. Metro, Manassas still has its battlefields and the less hectic pace of a small town. It's the kind of place retirees who want to escape the big city - but not completely - are flocking to.
Our All New, "Are You Ready for Retirement Quiz"
Are you really ready for retirement? The quizzes that we have seen tend to be financially oriented. So we decided to come up with our own little 20 question, yes or no quiz. It has 3 categories, plus a special scoring section at the end.
