    My grandmother told me last week that college towns are becoming really popular with new retirees. In the past, retirees wanted golf courses and beaches, somewhere to lounge around. But as Boomers retire, they want to maintain their youth as long as possible by continuing to engage in cultural activities and an active lifestyle. This list corroborates my grandmother pretty well. Most of these are big college towns.

    I just arrived in Cville this week, and I’m starting to get settled. Can’t say I’ve been very healthy yet though.
