Boston Globe Names Georgetown, Texas #1 Retirement Community

It comes as no surprise to residents that Georgetown was named the #1 town for retirement fun, culture and affordability by the Boston Globe.  Located just a half hour from Austin in the Texas hill country, Georgetown is a vibrant community and home to a diverse, growing population of all ages.

The Most Beautiful Town Square In Texas

With its restored Victorian architecture, brick sidewalks and the charm of antique streetlamps, downtown Georgetown is a magnet for active adults attracted to outdoor dining with friends, theater, and specialty shops. Recently cited as the most beautiful downtown square in Texas, buildings are outlined in lights at night, celebrating their preservation.

Activities And Interests For Every Body…And Mind!

Active adults will enjoy many events here, while sharing them with family or friends. Southwestern University, a major educational institution dating back to 1873, provides lifetime learning opportunities as well as a constant flow of musical, art and literature events open to all residents. Parks and trails, recreational facilities, golf courses, tennis and all the wonders of our Texas landscape abound. Houses of worship of all faiths and fabulous medical facilities serve the spirit and body.

The Charm Of Georgetown Makes It Special Throughout The Year.

In December, The Christmas Stroll fills the Square with holiday sounds, shopping, and treats. Fourth of July is a day-long party in San Gabriel Park along the river, featuring a petting zoo, vendors, train rides, entertainment and, of course, fireworks. Each April, The Red Poppy Festival welcomes spring and Georgetown’s signature red poppies with music. The Georgetown Festival of the Arts offers concerts and talks by nationally recognized musicians and scholars in late May. The Georgetown Grand cycling race turns downtown into a racetrack for hundreds of pro and amateur cyclists, also in May. And from March through November, the second Saturday of every month is Market Day.
