Congratulations to Roanoke City, named #6 on the Top 10 Best Places to Retire list, by Livability.com , a national website that ranks quality of life and travel amenities of America's small and mid-sized cities. Roanoke was the only Virginia City to make this list.

Roanoke was chosen "because it exposes older adults to new experiences -- keeping them active, engaged, healthy and inspired. The City offers a host of quality of life amenities appealing to seniors -- from arts and cultural activities, outdoor recreation opportunities, top-notch medical facilities to economic assets, such as continuing education and lower cost of living."
