The United States' second-largest state is home to vast outdoor spaces, pleasant weather, and many welcoming towns loved by their senior citizens. These 12 small towns beckon to spend very enviable Golden years in Texas.
Set south-east of Austin, the small town of under 9,000 residents is an excellent place to live out the Golden years in the outdoors with next-door attractions of Lake Bastrop and Bastrop State Park. Set on the Colorado River, one can spend days fishing and paddling or stroll around the banks and relax in the fresh air within views. Spanning the river, the beautiful suspension bridge is great for hiking, biking, walking, or jogging across for more scenic vistas. Back in-town awaits one with a zoo and other family-friendly activities, while the seniors especially enjoy the historic downtown area, reminiscent of the olden days. With cheaper housing prices and lower property taxes, one can find a great place to settle and have money for hobbies and entertainment. There are also many superb health care facilities in Austin, only 30 minutes away.
