Brunswick Forest, St. James get ‘Best in U.S.’ designation for retirement
LELAND, NC (WWAY) — A magazine that studies the best retirement regions, towns and master-planned communities across the country has two Brunswick County communities in the Top 50 places to retire.
“Where to Retire” says Brunswick Forest in Leland and St. James Plantation in Southport are two of the 50 best master-planned communities in the country. The report says North Carolina has six of the winning 50 communities, in third place behind Florida and Arizona, which both have nine.
According to the magazine’s editor, the 50 best master-planned communities showcase a wide range of housing options and amenities that enrich the lives of retirees. “A superb transplantation requires a move to an advantageous and nurturing spot. Over and over again, residents from these 50 communities boasted about having established new, lifelong friendships with neighbors who create an upbeat environment and activities that keep them fit and busy,” Where to Retire Editor Annette Fuller said. “The communities we chose are stunning in the viewfinder, with locations along the coast, in the mountains, near low-humidity deserts, by rivers and lakes and in proximity to major cities.”
