Richland cited among 9 great places to retire in national magazine

The city of Richland would be a great place to retire, according to an August story in Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine.

The magazine sought places with moderate living costs, first-class health care and plenty to see and do and highlighted nine cities.

Kiplinger’s touted Richland’s 300 days of sunshine, burgeoning wine industry, variety of outdoor recreation – including walks along the Columbia River and a private yacht club, shopping at the farmers market, local entertainment on the John Dam Plaza stage and a median home price of $310,000.

It also called the Tri-City region a “health care hub” for Eastern Washington with three large hospital systems: Kadlec in Richland, Trios Health in Kennewick and Lourdes Health in Pasco.

Other cities cited as good places for retirees include Mesa, Arizona; Portland, Maine; Lancaster, Pennsylvania; Williamsburg, Virginia; Lexington, Kentucky; Columbia, South Carolina; Johnson City, Tennessee; and Venice, Florida.
