Best Places to Live & Retire in Texas

You may not be aware, but Texas is the second most popular retirement destination in the U.S. Why? Because they have everything you could possibly want. There are big cities, small towns, lakes, beaches, warm weather and not the least of all, a great place to make your dollar go further. The Texas economy is one of the strongest in the nation. The cost of living is low and taxes are one of the lowest in the U.S.

Ideal-Living offers a free comprehensive service that begins with helping you find your Ideal Lifestyle. Until you know how you want to live, you can’t know where you want to live. We offer a wide array of tools to help you get answers to the questions that are keeping you from moving to your ideal destination.

Our resources can help you find best retirement communities in Texas in the best retirement locations. We can help you gain all this information as well put you in touch with representatives from the top retirement and resort communities in Texas, this includes communities in Richmond, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, and the Dallas metro area.

When it comes to the cost of living in Texas, you can't do much better as a retiree or near retiree. Taxes are low, in fact, there is no state income tax. Which means there is:

  • No Tax on Social Security Retirement Benefits
  • No Tax on Pension Income
  • No Tax on Retirement Account Income
  • No Tax on Any sort of Retirement Income

While Texas does have property taxes that are higher than average, the home costs are among the lowest in the nation because of the strong state economy. Even taking into consideration the 8% sales taxes and property taxes, Texas is ranked continually among the top 10 most tax-friendly states for retirees.

There are more reasons to consider Texas as your retirement destination that just taxes. In addition to its natural beauty, great climate and rich history, Texas is in the top 5 states in the U.S when it comes to the number of lakes in the state. Many folks think of Texas as a dry state, but with a coast line on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and more lakes than you can shake a stick at (over 6,000), you will have plenty of opportunities to relax by the water or play in/on the water. Boating is a booming industry within the state and a common recreational activity.

Our free Digital Retirement Guide and Ideal-Living Magazine offer an abundance of information on which states, towns and cities are the best for retirees, vacationers and second-home buyers. You can learn a great deal about the state of Texas as well as compare it to other states in terms of retirement friendliness. Ideal-Living provides you the resources to not only compare Texas against other states, but also compare communities within Texas. All that Texas has to offer is at your fingertips.
