Huntsville, AL Ranked 8th on CNNMoney.com's Top 25 Places To Retire

And yet again Huntsville makes another Top 10 List!

The website ranks Huntsville eighth in its "Top 25 Places to Retire," which is based on college towns. According to the article, the "post-work years are a time to improve your golf game, take up a new hobby, or just enjoy a well-deserved break. In these great college towns, you can expand your intellectual horizons, too."

Mayor Tommy Battle stated that "Rankings like these really tell us about where we stand as a community," "We have one of the lowest tax rates in the state, a commitment to continued financial stability, an incredibly stable job market and a very strong housing market. When you combine those factors with an incredible quality of life it's easy to see why our is continuously recognized in these kinds of publications."

"Space buffs know Huntsville as "The Rocket City" because the Marshall Space Flight Center was the original NASA and it still plays a major role in civilian and government spacecraft and rocketry," the story reads. "Architectural aficionados know it for its 19th century architecture; the National Trust for Historic Preservation named Huntsville one of America's Dozen Distinctive Destinations for 2010. And nature lovers know this Northern Alabama outpost for its parks, botanical gardens and nature preserves.

"While this picturesque city seems to have something for everyone, so too does the University of Alabama (in Huntsville). Now in its 17th year, the school's lifelong-learning program offers some 50 courses each term in topics as diverse as the volunteers who teach them and the 400 members who enroll in them. Winter gardening, German grammar and Zydeco dancing, anyone?"
