How Retirement Living Has Evolved in Dallas

Over 2,500 years ago, ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus said, “The only constant in life is change.” And while that’s true in every aspect of life, it’s amazing to consider how the ideas of work and retirement have evolved over the last 200 years, including the addition of retirement communities in the 1920s and ’30s. 

Today, while seniors may stop working at a career, retirement has moved from a time to relax to a desire to live an active and engaging life. That’s one reason why so many older adults are choosing to retire in Dallas. In fact, Travel + Leisure recently voted the Dallas/Fort Worth area as one of the 11 best places to retire in the U.S. for its small-town feel with city conveniences like restaurants, shopping, museums, entertainment and professional sports teams. Plus, Texas has no state income tax.

If you’re already living in the area or looking at retirement in Dallas, here are some reasons to consider a retirement community like Ventana by Buckner.
