SANDPOINT, Idaho – Sandpoint has been selected as a top retirement destination by ‘Where To Retire’ magazine. The magazine is geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions. Sandpoint is featured in the January/February 2018 issue and is available nationwide on December 12.
The magazine’s editor, Annette Fuller, said Sandpoint possesses qualities important to today’s retirees, “Up there, on the Idaho Panhandle, is Sandpoint, whose appeal is 100% clinched with sparkling Lake Pend Oreille and mountain views. Skiers adore the slopes in winter at Schweitzer Mountain resort, where a chairlift whisks them over the treetops. Antique shops, art festivals and craft breweries attract people downtown, and in the summer, hikers trek trails lined with lilacs.”
Each year, 700,000 Americans relocate to new towns to retire. Nationally, two dozen states and hundreds of cities and towns seek to attract retirees as a source of economic development.
