If you’re retired or getting near that season of your life, now is a great time to think about your future. If you’re looking for a friendly retirement community, Austin, TX should be on your list of places to check out.
You don’t move to Austin to be bored, and SoCo Village is about providing seniors with a contemporary and trendy lifestyle that lines up with the city’s vibe. These four reasons are why the capital city of the lone star state is sure to win you over:
- Senior care
- Retirement communities
1. Austin Adventures
You never have a reason to be bored in Austin. There’s always something new to eat, something neat to learn, and plenty of nature to realign your mind.
- Walking and biking trails
- Natural spring swimming
- Kayaking and boating
- Picnics in the shade
- Plant identification and bird watching
Foodies don’t have to feel guilty about indulging in Texas-sized treats now and then with all that outdoor activity. If you wind up in the South Congress area, check out these local flavors:
- Whether you prefer beef or plant-based, try P. Terry’s Burger Stand.
- Leroy and Lewis Barbecue serves up new-school BBQ with old-school hospitality.
- Amy’s Ice Creams has a flavor to cool off any hot day. They even ship nationwide if you want to try before you visit.
Learning is for life, which is why retirees will want to check out the Brush Square Museums:
The Susanna Dickinson Museum: Susanna Dickinson survived and escaped from the Battle of the Alamo to alert Sam Houston of what had occurred. Her home was preserved and turned into a museum with family artifacts and rotating works of art.
The O. Henry Museum: Not to be confused with the candy bar, this is the former residence of the prolific author, O. Henry. See where he penned some of his first articles and stories before—well, we won’t spoil it for you.
2. The Warm Texas Breeze
The average temperature in Austin hovers around 70 degrees. It indeed gets a little muggy in the summertime, but there are plenty of ways to beat the heat, as we discussed above.
Out-of-towners looking to get out of blizzard conditions will love the balmy winter weather here. There’s also a good three months in the spring and fall when it gets wet, and that sweet Texas rain smell dances through town.
3. World-class Care
