An increasingly popular state for retirement, Texas has a lot of perks for seniors including low costs, warm weather, charming towns, exciting college towns and cities, and seemingly endless opportunities for an active, healthy lifestyle. The fact that Texas does not have state income tax helps retirees keep their wallets full as well. Seniors also appreciate the friendly people and slower pace of life that characterizes Texas.
