I posted this within a thread but then thought it probably deserves it's very own thread. Everything is relative and Lynchburg will still probably never be the right fit for many. I can think of a couple of posters for starters....but certainly it is getting national recognition as a good place to retire to.......

Forbes magazine ranks Lynchburg in top places to retire | The News & Advance

Lynchburg is the ONLY Virginia city on the list of 50 cities across the nation.

The Roanoke-Lynchburg region is increasingly becoming a magnet for retirees, I'm not surprised at all. The proximity of SML and the Blue Ridge give the area some natural advantages for sure

Agreed, along with the fact that both Roanoke and Lynchburg have a cost of living well below other common retirement areas, such as Charlottesville or Williamsburg.
