Tennessee tourism officials have launched a new website that aims to recruit retirees to settle down in the state.

A Tennessee Department of Tourist Development news release Thursday said Retire Tennessee's new website has offered information on health care, experiences, shopping, retirement developments and communities, testimonials, and sample housing stock. Currently, 22 Tennessee counties have been participating in the program.

The site has featured videos, photos, an interactive map, and a cost-of-living calculator.

State tourism officials said Tennessee has been one of only four states with a formal retiree recruitment program.

The Retire Tennessee program, newly branded as "The Good Life. Only Better," has ben in its 12th year. It drew 8,000 inquiries from potential retirees in 2016.
