More About of U.S. News & World Report's Top Ten Bargain Retirement Spots


Emily Brandon, writing for U.S. News & World Report, says, "The picture-perfect small town featured in the Julia Roberts film Steel Magnolias is actually Natchitoches, La. Visitors and locals alike stroll along Front Street, a 33-block cobblestone thoroughfare in the historic landmark district. It is dotted on one side with vintage homes (and their wrought-iron balconies), churches, restaurants, and shops, and it overlooks Cane River Lake on the other."
