Nowadays, Texas is on a lot of retirees minds but first, there has to be a choice of what weather one prefers, whether or not you want to close to a major city?
First, on Texas weather, it snows in the winter anywhere between the Dallas area and the Panhandle, boasts warm weather in Brownsville and Corpus Christi and has a nice cool temperature in the hills that surround Austin.
Second, how near to a major city do you need to be? If you enjoy theatre, a good ballet or opera then a location to a major city is a must. However, if you are seeking a more tranquil setting and wish to be closer to nature, then one of the small towns would be ideal.
Sun City is one of the retirement communities in Texas. It is a retirement community which has more than the normal perks. It boasts small town elegance and is just a few minutes from a major city, Austin. It is dubbed one of America's leading golden age communities. Sun City is one of the most affordable retirement communities in which to live and is in the perfect location. There are numerous activities to keep the retirees active such as tennis, hiking trails (for those who love the outdoors), swimming pools and not one, but three, top of the line golf courses.
