Gainesville Named a Great Place to Retire
Gainesville, GA – 02/11/2008: Where to Retire magazine named the City of Gainesville as one the “8 Terrific Low-Tax Towns” and spotlights small cities in the nation as “Best Places to Retire” to enjoy a good, quality life while saving money.
The article in the January/February 2008 issue notes Gainesville’s low taxes, prime location just 50 miles northeast of Atlanta in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and highlights the community as “a Southern hot spot attracting boomers on the move.” Also noted in the article is Gainesville’s economic stability, mild seasons, several high-end retirement communities, a “peachy” state tax structure that benefits seniors and free tuition to state universities.
Photos of the Downtown Square and city municipal buildings are spotlighted in the article. Kit Dunlap, President/CEO of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce is quoted, “For those who want the convenience and access to Atlanta and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, but desire a small-town quality of life with big-city cultural amenities, a host of outdoor recreational opportunities and access to high-quality healthcare, Gainesville is an attractive choice for retirees.”
