    North San Diego County & Its Cities Are Highly Rated Among

"The Best Places to Retire"

North San Diego County (North County) was rated as the 5th Best Place to Retire in the U.S. by David Savageau's book titled Retirement Places Rated (6th Edition, Wiley Publications, Hoboken, NJ, 2004). In addition, Carlsbad was rated as one of the 10 Best Retirement Towns in Southern California by Fortune and Where To Retire Magazines and Escondido was rated as one of the One of the 20 Healthiest Place to Retire by Money Magazine's 2009 retirement places recommendations.
Do one city's high ratings also apply to the other North County towns and cities? We believe that in most cases, they do.
