Eden Prairie third best place to retire
Eden Prairie was named the third-healthiest place to retire by U.S. News and World Report. Ahead of it are Bella Vista, Ark., and Boulder, Colo. The criteria that influenced the decision were things like providing places to exercise, promoting strong social support and encouraging healthy lifestyle habits, cost of living, recreational opportunities and climate.
Ranking behind Eden Prairie are Green Valley, Ariz. at No. 4 and Issaquah, Wash. at No. 5, followed by Longmeadow, Mass, Portland, Maine, Punta Gorda Fla., Reston, Va. and Walnut Creek, Calif.
The story in the Strib didn't have much more than that, given that the report was just published Sunday. Maybe more will come of this, if the Strib editors decide to pursue stories on local businesses in Eden Prairie in relation to seniors and the like.
