Located on the Eastern shore of Lake Michigan, Grand Haven was designated as one of the "Best Secret Beaches on Earth" by Travel & Leisure.  It is a great little town with a boardwalk, State Park, and prettylighthouses.
This is our annual list of the 100 most popular active adult and 55+ communities in our database.  7 states dominated the results, and interestingly, not all are from the Sun Belt. There are 38 communities new to this year's list.
Known as the oldest city in Texas, Nacogdoches is also home to Stephen F. Austin University. It is one of Texas's Certified Retirement Communities, a designation it earned by meeting some exacting criteria.
Many of our members enjoy finding out the basics of retirement from our mini-state guides. There are 50 of those, plus 19 guides to retirement in individual countries. We just changed the format so they are easier to read - onyour computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Forward this to a friend.   If you have friends thinking about retirement, please forward them this newsletter. They can get their own subscription to this free weekly "Best Places" newsletter, the Daily Digest, and the East and West New Community newsletters by going to our Newsletter sign up page.
