LOGAN The magazine Where To Retire will feature this college town as an "undiscovered haven" in its next issue.
Northern Utah is neighborly and cultured for "active retirees and urban refugees who value recreation and raw beauty as much as they do community and convenience," the magazine says in a six-page story.
Writer Dina Mishev, who lives in Jackson Hole, Wyo., spotlighted Logan in a package about five places where people might be interested in moving for a quiet retirement.
Logan is a place people can stretch their dollars to buy more house, walk a locally owned downtown business district, travel to mountain trails in minutes and find a handful of age-restricted newer neighborhoods, Mishev wrote.
At the Cache Valley Visitors' Bureau, Mike Bullock said he was expecting an influx of phone calls and e-mails next week when the issue of Where to Retire is published.
"People don't want to retire and just vegetate," Bullock said. "They want to do things as well."
The story quotes one couple who moved from Maryland praising Utah for its low humidity and Logan for its clean downtown, inexpensive utilities, accessible conveniences and cultural events.
AARP Utah Director Rob Ence said Logan is a place where people are happy.
"Logan not only has an environment of vitality, but of rugged life ... and beauty," he said. "Its an invigorating environment."
