Fredericton makes national list
Relatively low housing costs and plenty of entertainment were among the reasons given for Fredericton being a great place to retire. The city has placed eighth on MSN Money's Top 10 Canadian cities for retirees; it was the only New Brunswick city on the list. Average housing prices are about $100,000 less than in Halifax. The Beaverbrook Art Gallery, the Playhouse and the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival are among the attractions credited as fine entertainment options for retired people.
