Texas Senior Apartments

Texas has always been a well sought-after destination for any demographic, but especially for seniors. The second largest state in the U.S. in terms of both area and population, Texas has everything you could possibly want in retirement. Fittingly, the demand for senior housing in Texas is very strong. While certain locations are not only competitive but expensive to live in, others are reasonably priced.

Due to its location in the south, winters are very mild with no snow and little precipitation. The massive state offers a nice combination of gigantic metropolitan areas along with big to regular size cities and small, rural agricultural territories dominated by huge ranches and farms.

Do you want to spend a night in the city catching a show and having a fancy dinner with a glass of wine? Then do you want to wake up the next day and go fishing or hiking? Active older adults and senior citizens can do all of that, and so much more in Texas because of its amazing variety.

Metropolitan Areas for Senior Housing in Texas

Some people would be lost without a big city, even in their later years. If you have always been a “big city person” and never plan to leave then there are several major metropolitan areas and subsequent suburbs for senior housing to select from. Houston, the fourth largest city in the United States, offers affordable Texas senior living while San Antonio (the second most populated city in the state) has more upscale Texas senior apartments for rent. The Dallas-Fort Worth area represents the third significant metropolitan area in Texas. All three offer exceptional senior housing complexes, a high quality of life and phenomenal weather year-round for retirees.

Is the big city not really your thing? Or have you lived in one for years and are ready to settle down in a quieter, safer neighborhood? Instead of looking for senior apartments and condos for rent in Texas big cities, consider rural communities of the state along with mid-size cities like Austin or El Paso.

You would be hard pressed to find another state that has so many low-budget senior living facilities. However, just because many are low-budget, that does not make them poor places to live. In fact, most of the facilities are extremely nice and luxurious.

Where are the best places for senior living apartments in Texas?

It is hard to answer that question because the state is so large and it is also dependent on what type of setting you want. A big misconception with Texas is that it’s all desert. In fact, only about 10 percent of the land is dry and arid, as much of region is actually prairie, grassland, forest or coastline.
