Texas Retirement Information

The state boasts warm weather, no state income tax and a cost of living that is lower than the national average. Texas is friendly and the value of homes for the cost is great.

There are so many different landscapes in this state. Eastern Texas is so green with a lot of lakes. In the south there is the coast. Westward is like the old west depicted in television.

Texas is the second most populous and the second-largest of the 50 states in the United States of America, and the largest state in the 48 contiguous United States.

Texas is nicknamed the Lone Star State to signify Texas as a former independent republic and as a reminder of the state's struggle for independence from Mexico.
