According to the U.S. Census Bureau, about 22 percent of Wellington's residents are 55 and older, but don't be surprised if that number increases. 

A magazine called "Where to Retire" has named Wellington as a top retirement destination. 

The publication reports a number of things make the community attractive to retirees, including its easy access to nearby destination spots like Palm Beach and Boca Raton. 

The March issue of the magazine is available on Tuesday.
