More retirees are moving to Texas than any other state. With fields of billowing bluebonnets, a night sky blanketed with stars, and glistening lakes flocked by fern-coated cliffs, Central Texas sparkles with beautiful treasures.
Active adults can take in the region’s natural beauty by the day and participate in the area’s exciting nightlife when the sun goes down. Austin has earned its title as the Live Music Capital of the World, but active adults can also tap their toes and tip their hats at the legendary Gruene Hall, Texas’ oldest dance hall, located in New Braunfels. It’s for these reasons and more that active adults love to call Central Texas home. Get a look at four 55+ communities in Central Texas below.
