CNN Money Votes St. Augustine, FL Ten Out Of Top 25 Places to Retire

Yes, I live in this wonderful city, Saint Augustine – the oldest, continuously inhabited city in the US.  Located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in northeast Florida with some of the best sunrises and beaches anywhere around and I love it!  It was great to see my city picked as number 10 in a list of 25 top cities to consider for retirement.  Here is the article from CNN Money:

Legend has it that explorer Juan Ponce de León set foot in St. Augustine nearly 500 years ago and discovered the elusive fountain of youth. Alas, a move to the city today probably won’t turn back the clock (in fact, de León may not have ever been in St. Augustine).

But St. Augustine’s fantastic weather, beautiful beaches, and world-class golf will certainly do a body good. Although this small city 38 miles southeast of Jacksonville is a popular tourist destination, it has an active year-round community and lots of housing options. Its Flagler Hospital ranks among the top in the nation for clinical excellence and patient safety.
