Reno still one of the best places to retire

The January/February edition of Where to Retire will profile Reno in its top 8 list of “great places to retire”. See the Reno Gazette-Journal story here: Reno makes national magazine’s top 8 places to retire

From the RGJ story:

The magazine’s editor, Mary Lu Abbott, praised Reno’s current housing prices and outdoor activity options. “Reno has so much to offer active retirees, from the cultural scene to casino action complemented with year-round outdoor recreation,” Abbott said. “And all those perks come with outstanding bargains in home prices as the city recovers from a hard hit in the housing crisis. “For boomers who’ve had Reno in mind for retirement, now is the time to act, to get everything they wanted at sometimes close to half the price of a few years ago,” she said.

Incidentally, the same designation was also given to Reno by the magazine in 2010.

    In 2010, I bought a house in NW Reno at a 41% discount. It’s a very nice house and neighborhood. As a recent retiree, I greatly enjoy hiking the mountains here, lake Tahoe, the mild climate (minus the wind), the German/Austrian bakeries, and a little gambling. Reno isn’t perfect, but if your a physically active, outdoor enthusiast, it’s not bad.
