Texas Ranks High for Retirement Cities

Best Cities to Retire in Texas

First Mountain future retireesIn February of this year, the Wall Street Journal published an article, The 10 Best Places to Retire in the U.S, based on the research conducted by John Brady at  At the top of the list in 2012 was San Antonio which placed second just after Sarasota, Florida. San Antonio ranked high based on low home prices, cost of living, low unemployment rate and the city’s cultural activities and attractions.

Canyon Lake, Texas – A Top Retirement Spot just north of San Antonio,  Texas

San Antonio is a great place to live, but if its size of 1.3 million people is a bit large for your taste, you may want to consider Canyon Lake, Texas for your retirement location.  Canyon Lake is a small town of 23,000 located in the Texas Hill country just 30 miles north of San Antonio.  Canyon Lake is close enough to San Antonio to take advantage of the activities and festivals it offers, but far enough away to enjoy a lifestyle surrounded by the natural beauty and peacefulness  of the Texas Hill Country. 

According to, Canyon Lake’s medium home price is $193,000, a bit higher than San Antonio’s of $150,000. But Canyon Lake’s unemployment rate is 5.8% as compared to San Antonio’s 6.8%, and its cost of living index is 81,a bit lower than San Antonio at 91. A positive for both, of course, is the issue of income tax.  There is none in Texas.

You can also see how this looks at the bottom  
of this article. It is the index that processes all the facts debated over above  
and then dispenses a closing">website value calculator worth  
basing on the ending value of that specific index. So, the more traffic your website receives the higher its value.
