Two Texas Cities Selected As Best Places To Retire
Forbes Magazine selected Dallas and San Antonio as the best retirement cities in America. Dallas with and active population of 1.35 million has a median home price of just $210,000, 21 % below the national average, with a cost of living at 2% above the national average, with adequate number of physicians per capita. They have no state or estate tax, low to moderate climate-change risk, a big culture scene, very bike-friendly, yet Dallas does have a high crime rate. Forbes ranks the Dallas Cowboys as the world’s most valuable sports team with a worth of $5.5 billion.
San Antonio is a major city in south-central Texas with very rich colonial heritage with a population of 1.5 million, a median home price range of only $188,000 which is 34% below the national average.
Forbes uses 750 American cities in their review and selects 25 of them to be the best overall retirement cities.
Many of the retire population need to select a city where they want to spend their golden age years. With the coronavirus pandemic still attacking our communities, when the residents of New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles decide to move out of their crowded cities, naturally, Dallas and San Antonio will be their best choice.
We are hoping that the vaccine will come out soon to rescue our community. That should turn our economy around and point it in a normal direction.
Texas is the largest state in America, with the exception of Alaska. We have many world-class industries including energy, medical and NASA. We always welcome all those people looking for opportunity to come to Texas.
