The Maui News - - TODAY’S PEOPLE -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Ten­nessee tourism of­fi­cials are launch­ing a web­site that aims to re­cruit re­tirees to set­tle down in the state.

A Ten­nessee Depart­ment of Tourist De­vel­op­ment news re­lease Thurs­day says Re­tire Ten­nessee’s new web­site of­fers in­for­ma­tion on health care, ex­pe­ri­ences, shop­ping, re­tire­ment de­vel­op­ments and com­mu­ni­ties, tes­ti­mo­ni­als and sam­ple hous­ing stock. Cur­rently, 22 Ten­nessee coun­ties par­tic­i­pate in the pro­gram.

The site fea­tures videos, pho­tos an in­ter­ac­tive map and a cost-of-liv­ing cal­cu­la­tor.

State tourism of­fi­cials say Ten­nessee is one of only four states with a for­mal re­tiree re­cruit­ment pro­gram.

The Re­tire Ten­nessee pro­gram, newly branded as “The Good Life. Only Bet­ter,” is in its 12th year. It drew 8,000 in­quiries from po­ten­tial re­tirees last year.
