Downsizing? Ready for a fresh start? Retiring in Texas is different with Upside. From Dallas and Fort Worth to Houston and Austin, you can choose from hundreds of unique apartments available in a wide variety of sizes and configurations. Then, you can take advantage of everything these amazing cities have to offer – the museums and attractions, the dining and nightlife scenes, and access to a personal Upside Manager to help connect you with the things that matter.
Everything is bigger in Texas, except for income taxes. Texas is one of a handful of states that do not tax income at the state level. That means residents don’t pay a state tax on Social Security retirement benefits, pension income, retirement account income, or any other forms of retirement income.
Dallas is an international cultural hub, so forget about cowboys and cattle. Instead, picture world-renowned museums, vibrant performance spaces, theaters, even a surprisingly huge national forest just waiting for you to explore. The city of Fort Worth, or “Funky Town” as many locals call it, offers an entirely different vibe that is more relaxed, laid back, and completely charming in its own right. Unlike Dallas where the only cowboys you’re likely to see are on the football field, Fort Worth is a friendly city where folks are proud of the area’s rugged cowboy roots.
If you enjoy live music from emerging new artists and big names alike, Austin is your city. Plus it’s got plenty of great parks, river access, hiking trails, and a great food scene. Then there’s Houston; a diverse city known for its role in the space program and widely considered to be one of the best places to relocate to. Cost of living is especially affordable here, too, which gives you more spending power to enjoy the city’s attractions which you can do any time of year thanks to the always warm Texas climate.
In South Central Texas you’ll find San Antonio, a city known for its unapologetic authenticity. This historically significant town is home to plenty of natural wonders, world-class dining, inspiring art museums and other cultural destinations that reaffirm all the best things about retiring in San Antonio, Texas with Upside.
Finally, there’s our 55+ communities in Arlington, TX. Located in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, this city offers convenient airport access, and an eclectic mix of attractions. From theme parks like Six Flags Over Texas, to incredible venues like AT&T Stadium, and the International Bowling Hall of Fame, there’s always something slightly unexpected to love about retiring in Austin as a member of Upside.
