Seniors finishing high school may have anxiety about going off to college, while retirees are excited about finding the best college towns to retire where they can enjoy active lifestyles while maintaining brain fitness. Georgia is proactive in attracting retirees by phasing out retirement state income tax on income up to $130,000 for joint filers. Did you know Georgia also amended their constitution reducing college tuition costs for persons age 62 and over? This program in Georgia is called Amendment 23. Our focus is on the two northern Georgia mountain towns; Dahlonega and Athens who have quite a line up of excellent college courses for mature adults over age 62. Take a look at the 2011 fall semester class schedule:
