Houston, TX (Oct. 2, 2018) – Cane Island, located in Katy, TX, near Houston, has been awarded a Best Neighborhood designation by Where to Retire, the only magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions. The award recognizes outstanding master-planned and active-adult communities. A profile of the development will be in the November/December 2018 issue, available nationwide on Oct. 9.
Where to Retire Editor Annette Fuller said Cane Island possesses qualities important to today’s retirees. “This all-ages community attracts many retirees, who have settled in to friends and fun. Thirteen neighborhoods are within the larger development, but residents come to Cane Quarter, the gathering spot for one and all,” Fuller said. “The amenity center hosts summer concerts and retirees can cast out for bass from one of the development’s 10 lakes. A multilevel treehouse is a popular hangout spot. The development also has an expansive fitness center, a lifestyle coordinator and an on-site greeter, a friendly golden retriever named Hub.”
A Best Neighborhood award winner is featured in each issue of Where to Retire. To be considered, the community has to be actively selling homes and have many or most amenities in place.
Each year, 700,000 Americans relocate to new towns to retire. Generally, relocating retirees are healthier, better educated and more affluent than those who choose to not relocate. They bring significant economic benefits to their new states and hometowns. Nationally, two dozen states and hundreds of towns seek to attract retirees as a source of economic development.

The magazine covers the best retirement regions, towns and master-planned communities, and recently released its 10th biennial list naming the 50 best master-planned communities in the U.S. It has a national circulation of 200,000 and is sold on various newsstands and at Barnes & Noble bookstores.
