The Baby-Boomer Rumor
Were you born in the fabulous ’40s? Or in the rock-and-rolling ’50s, when Elvis and “Blue Suede Shoes” were king? Then you’re possibly a baby-boomer.
Here’s the boomer rumor: A study released at the Global 2000 Conference says you guys, (us too), are looking toward small-to-medium-size cities for retirement — mostly in the South and West. Experts say the fastest-growing elderly population won’t be in sunny Florida in coming years, but Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and “up north to Alaska.”
Large coastal cities such as New York, Los Angeles, and Miami will attract singles and younger families, and will become even more than now, business and tourist destinations. Yesterday’s baby bubble is now 45 to 65 years old. Many are empty-nesters and financially free. Today’s boomers soon will be settlers. They’re on the move and may be coming your way.
