Glenn and Loujean Nelson are leaving the Windy City and moving to Tallahassee.
Earlier today, the couple was named the winner of the Why I’d Love to Retire in Tallahassee, Florida contest, hosted by Choose Tallahassee, an all-volunteer organization that champions Tallahassee as a retirement city for Baby Boomers.
The couple, retired elementary school teachers originally from Dothan, Alabama, will receive one year of free rent plus a prize package valued at $41,000.
The couple beat out dozens of other retirees to win. A group of Choose Tallahassee volunteer judges whittled applicants to 25 semi-finalists, all of whom submitted a video about why they wanted to live in Tallahassee. The judges then interviewed the five finalists to determine the winner.
