HSV Honored Again, This Time by Southern Living

Submitted by on

You've probably already seen that Where to Retire magazine named Hot Springs Village one of the 50 best master-planned communities in the country, but now another publication is recognizing the Village's greatness as well. This time, the honor is coming from Southern Living magazine, which included HSV in its article "South's Best Retirement Towns", appearing in the July 2019 issue.

Only two places in Arkansas were selected for the list, the other being Rogers. Southern Living praised Hot Springs Village for its many golf courses, lakes, recreational activities, and social clubs. You can read everything mentioned about the Village by clicking here.

Southern Living was established in 1966 to "highlight the beauty and culture of the growing South."

Hot Springs Village Listed Among Top 50 Planned Communities

Submitted by on

Hot Springs Village has been named one of the best master-planned communities in the nation in the latest issue of Where to Retire magazine! Residents of HSV probably already understood this fact, but now they have the evidence to back it up!

Where to Retire spent nearly a year analyzing information from hundreds of communities to construct “The Short List: 50 Best Master-Planned Communities in the United States”, which appears in their July/August 2019 issue. The list highlights 50 communities with enough acreage to build at least a year’s supply of homes. In the end, just 17 states were represented, with HSV being the only community from Arkansas to make the cut.

Where to Retire has been the authority on retirement relocation since its inception in 1992. It examines vital information on climate, state and local taxes, cost of living, housing costs, health care, crime, and much more in order to recommend only the best locations to America's retirees.
