Planning To Retire In The DFW Area? Granbury Is The Place To Be!

dfw area

The Dallas-Ft. Worth metro is attractive to people of all ages for countless reasons. One of the most popular destinations in the U.S. for homeowners, Granbury was recently named the number 2 city in Texas for those who are nearing or at retirement age.

Just over an hour from the DFW International Airport, Granbury was chosen in a new study conducted by SmartAsset as the second most popular city to retire to in the state. This charming town was chosen based on several factors including number of retirement centers, doctors’ offices and recreation centers for every 1,000 residents, along with the percentage of the population who are seniors. Currently the city’s senior population stands at almost 30%.

With a population of approximately 7,400, Granbury is an historic community that’s not too large and offers a plethora of activities for seniors. Friendly people, perfect weather, bingo on Fridays nights, women’s clubs and beautifully manicured golf courses are just a few of the reasons those of retirement age love living their golden years in Granbury.

The atmosphere is one that’s charming with that “small-town” feel and attitude, although the city continues to grow. Well-known for its historic district and many community events and festivals throughout the year, Granbury also offers up plenty of fine dining whether you enjoy Italian, Mexican, Chinese, seafood, or just good old country cooking.

According to the SmartAsset study Granbury offers 0.8 retirement centers and 2.1 recreation centers for every 1,000 residents.
