Welcome to Active Adult Living in the Texas Hill Country
Whether you’re looking forward to a leisurely retirement or a rewarding postretirement “encore” career, the Texas Hill Country is a great place to explore.
Austin and Fredericksburg both landed on Forbes’ 25 Best Places to Retire List, after the publication crunched the data on 400 U.S. cities and scored them by factors such as overall cost of living, home prices in comparison to national averages, and tax climates for retirees.
Austin ranks an impressive No. 3 on the Forbes list, with pros including a “terrific economy, warm weather, cost of living at about the national average, low crime, and high grades for bicycling and volunteering.”
