DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - Kiplinger.com has named the city of Dothan one of five great cities for retirees.
Cities with a high number of doctors and large percentages of the population over 65 were used to narrow down the list.
Dothan's proximity to parks and golf courses, a 2-hour drive to the Florida Gulf Coast and a 4-hour drive to the Atlantic Coast were among the city's plusses.
Other criteria included state tax rates, exemptions for retirement income, low crime rates, access to airports, local transportation and access to leisure activities.
