Charleston, South Carolina continues to receive national recognition as one of the best places to retire. Charleston attracts a community of people who either want to live in a charming and historic old city, or in the many new developments springing up for retirees nearby. The low cost of living, and thriving economy, are a big plus, as well. As the Charleston area continues to grow and flourish, it still maintains its historic charm. We are thrilled to share that Charleston, South Carolina has been voted the No. 1 City in the World and No. 1 City in the U.S. and Canada in the Travel + Leisure 2016 World’s Best Awards. Charleston is the first domestic destination to earn the coveted No. 1 City in the World ranking.
So why is the Charleston area getting this kind of recognition? What is so special about the Holy City? Charleston is judged as a prime local for seniors based on factors such as ambiance, housing, services, personal safety, the economy, climate, cost of living and repeated visits to these areas.
Charleston has a tremendous amount to offer from its endless list of cultural and recreational activities to the numerous restaurants, parks, shopping centers, colleges and churches. Whether you enjoy fishing, boating, bicycling, golfing, gardening, playing tennis…the year round average temperature of 70 degrees is sure to please. The lush vegetation, beaches, lakes, and wildlife make Charleston a beautiful place to live.
For many seniors, growing older often means dealing with new medical challenges and the cost of managing health-related issues can be astronomical. In 2016, Investopedia ranked the 10 Best States for Affordable Senior Care with South Carolina coming in at #6. The Palmetto State is an ideal option for health-conscious seniors.
