CNN: Summerville 24th best spot to retire

SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC)- Summerville has been honored by CNN as one of the top 25 places to retire in the United States.

The news network ranked Summerville as the 24th best place in the country to retire, citing its history, charm, and affordable setting.

Albuquerque, New Mexico took the number one spot on the list.

Such accolades are not new for Summerville, which was deemed by medical experts in the late 19th century as being one of the best places in the world to treat lung and throat disorders.

Doctors credited the dry air and plethora of pine trees as the reason.
