6 Things the Texas Wine Country Offers Retirees

Posted by Vintage Oaks

What makes a great retirement spot? It depends on whom you ask. Some choose to be near family. For others, a complete change of pace is in order. One thing shared by those who have chosen the Texas Wine Country is the excitement of living in a revered location with an abundance to offer retirees.

Wine Country Living

Rolling hills, winding streets, sparkling blue and a sea of green dotted with 100-year-old oak trees. This is the Texas Wine Country—beautiful at every turn. Of course, it wouldn’t be the Wine Country without vines and wine. This growing region offers endless opportunities for wine tasting and stocking up, with 35 unique wineries throughout the Hill Country. Land and homebuyers at Vintage Oaks, the fastest-growing community in the area, have unmatched access to an award-winning Black Spanish wine with a location just across the street from Dry Comal Creek Winery.

A Great Location

A small-town feel with big-city conveniences—that’s just one of the things that makes the Wine Country so ideal. With Austin on one side and San Antonio on the other, residents can easily travel to either—that is if they choose to leave. There is so much to see and do right here, they often find themselves staying close to home.

So much to do

In the Wine Country, retirees enjoy an incomparable lifestyle, with beautiful scenery and endless opportunities to enjoy it. Hike, bike, or walk among numerous trails that celebrate the area’s geography and topography. Take a picnic lunch to Landa Park and watch the grandkids play. Or go boating on one of the area lakes.

Head to downtown New Braunfels’ historic main plaza and browse the quaint shops. Plan a tee-time at one of the many local golf courses. Or, head to Gruene for a magical day in a historic setting.

For great shopping and dining, retirees have come to the right place. The Premium Outlets in San Marcos were named the third-best place to shop in the world by ABC’s “The View,” and area restaurants reflect an international flavor rooted in the area’s German heritage, fine dining, and some of the best Texas eats around. 

Close Proximity to Medical Facilities

Access to area services is equally convenient, with the full-service CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital in New Braunfels offering state-of-the-art technology and a full scope of specialized services to meet healthcare needs. The McKenna wellness center is also located nearby, providing resources and programs focused on improving quality of life.

The People

For a warm and welcoming environment, it doesn’t get much better than the Texas Wine Country. People move here for so many reasons, but the friendships they make and the community spirit they feel are two of many reasons they stay. Many retirees move to the Wine Country from bustling cities and are looking for a more peaceful way of life here among nature and new friends.

Land and Homes for Sale

Throughout Texas, acreage properties, homes, and home/lot packages allow buyers the opportunity to purchase exactly what they want for their ultimate retirement residence. Whether they are looking to buy in a private location or in a master-planned community with an array of amenities and activities, they can find something to fit their needs in the location they want. One of the most popular choices for buyers in the Texas Hill Country is Vintage Oaks. In fact, this master-planned community located right on the Texas Wine Trail is the fastest-growing community in the Hill Country.
