We're On the List--And It's A Good One PDF Print

Boone North Carolina is on the top ten list—and it’s a good list.  The Chicago Tribune has jointly published with US News & World Report its top ten list of affordable mountain communities to retire to, and Boone is number 3 nationally.  The report cites senior amenities, such as free public transportation—our AppalCart—good medical care, and just enough size to provide for other amenities.

Boone is behind Blacksburg, Virginia at number one, and Bend Oregon.  Only three of the cities, including Boone and Blacksburg, are on the east coast.  The Trib’s list:

1. Blacksburg, Va.

2. Bend, Ore.

3. Boone, N.C.

4. Bozeman, Mont.

5. Burlington, Vt.

6. Colorado Springs, Colo.

7. Fayetteville, Ark.

8. Post Falls, Idaho

9. Redding, Calif.

10. Salt Lake City
