Between all the choices of city living and residential communities, here are our 10 best places in Texas for retirees:

1) Austin

Holding on to money requires knowing how to disburse it responsibly. Being rich often demands that people budget. If you are debating going to the grocery store versus ordering pizza every night, then the money smart option would be to grab a week’s worth of fresh veggies and whole grains and learn how to cook. While going out to eat is far more convenient and less timely than staying in and preparing a nice meal, it is also far more expensive. Budgeting means making the most beneficial decisions with your money for the long haul. Set aside a designated amount each week to spend on restaurants and new clothes. Keep the rest tucked away and forget it is even there. Austin is a city of diversity in terms of culture, festivals, and arts. Along with the shopping opportunities typical of big cities, there are galleries, cultural centers, and plenty of musical shows. Additionally, it is a prime spot for seniors who are interested in staying active. The Austin Parks and Recreation Department offers a wide variety of social, physical, and intellectual experiences, such as traveling and partaking in recreational hobbies. For quieter days away from the bustle of the urban center, Zilker Botanical Garden boasts relaxing scenery filled with a wide spectrum of greenery and Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail has walking circuits of different lengths and views of both the lake and the city skyline itself. And since Austin is surrounded by Hill Country, yet another option is visiting the historic towns and outdoor activity spots.
