Black Enterprise names 20 best places to retire

UNDATED (AP) -- Durham, N.C., is listed by Black Enterprise magazine as the best place to retire, based on quality of life, affordable health care and other considerations.

Black Enterprise is the most recent national publication to release a list of desirable retirement spots. It considered a number of factors when tabulating its annual list of "20 Best Places to Retire" in the October issue.

The rankings, in a survey created by the magazine's editors, gave places 40 percent of the total score for quality of life, 20 percent for health care, and 15 percent each for taxes and leisure. Arts & Culture and climate were each given 5 percent of the total score.
