Houston is a bustling city with plenty of opportunities for everyone, including retired residents. Many seniors choose to retire in Houston either because they have loved the city for a long time or because they are seeking an urban retirement in a warm climate with senior-friendly tax laws. Fortunately, you can find high end senior living in Houston, in addition to luxury independent living and memory care options, as long as you know where to look. Our round-up of luxury communities will help you get started.

Retiring in Houston

It’s no wonder why adults choose to retire in Houston. In addition to the dining, shopping, and cultural opportunities around every corner, the city is also home to many hospitals and healthcare providers with outstanding reputations. Public or scheduled transportation via METRORail or bus is easy to find and inexpensive, giving residents the opportunity to explore the city and run errands without worrying about traffic or parking. In addition, Texas is considered a retirement friendly state thanks to the fact that it doesn’t tax retirement income.
