Aiken, South Carolina has been honored with many titles. The city received the All-American Award in 1997 by the Civic National League and now Where to Retire magazine has selected Aiken, South Carolina as a top retirement destination. Aiken was profiled in the November/December issue, available nationwide October 14, 2014.

The magazine points to the many pleasing attributes to living in Aiken. “Beloved for its mild weather, Aiken also draws retirees who have a passion for horses and courses,” says Where to Retire Editor, Annette Fuller.

She added, “Equestrian facilities, trails and sports are top-notch in the area, and the Augusta National is only 20 miles away. A new performing arts program hosts a variety of shows, and the University of South Carolina Aiken offers continuing-education courses and opportunities. Downtown Aiken has a mix of tourists and locals browsing the shops, enjoying a meal or even taking a history tour of the city.”

With all these available activities and opportunities, it is no wonder Aiken was selected as a Top Retirement Destination. Retirees today are looking to pursue hobbies, recreational sports such as golf, fishing, and hiking, and social events.
