As a place to retire, Texas certainly offers a tremendous of choices. Whether you prefer a large urban area with luxury golf course communities, world-class restaurants and shops and major league sports... a laid back coastal retreat on the Gulf of Mexico...or a small town environment with a sense of community and civic involvement; Texas is big enough to fit each of those criteria.

But if you want to narrow the selection process, and start your search with an area that has a great year round climate, beautiful four-season scenery and a host of outdoor recreational opportunities, we might suggest that you consider the Hill Country of Texas. This verdant, rolling landscape stretching out westward between Austin and San Antonio, with numerous lakes, quaint bed and breakfast inns, and relaxing golf course resorts, is a popular summer home destination and playground for Texas' city dwellers. One commentator has described this sun-drenched region as being "...like Jackson Pollack on a rampage... Splashes of fuchsia and magenta dart against a cerulean curtain."

Now, retirees are discovering that the spectacular beauty of this countryside and the towns scattered throughout it is also a great retirement destination. Places like Fredericksburg, Kerrville, Marble Springs and several others, are being discovered by retirees from throughout the Mid-west and other areas from across the U.S.
