Fortune Magazine has named San Luis Obispo one of their “great places to retire” in their college town category. Athens is spotlighted with a “You might also like” mention for SLO and Madison Wisconsin. They have 4 categories with 3 cities mentioned so not sure why the title is 4 Great Places to Retire.
“San Luis Obispo, Calif. The local university, California Polytechnic State, has some of the top-ranked engineering and architecture programs in the country. It’s also conveniently located between the ocean and wine country.”
