El Paso TX Senior Living
If you’re looking for the perfect Texas city in which to retire, El Paso might be your best option. The city is located in west Texas and sits on the edge of the Rio Grande, just across the way from Juarez, Mexico. For more than 15 years, El Paso has ranked among the top three safest large cities in the United States.
Of course, it probably helps that El Paso has a strong military presence. Installments including the William Beaumont Army Medical Center, Biggs Army Airfield and Fort Bliss, among others, no doubt contribute to the security El Paso enjoys.
And don’t worry, El Paso offers plenty of fun, too. The city’s rich history is punctuated by a number of museums including the El Paso Museum of History, Fort Bliss Museums and Study Center, National Border Patrol Museum, and Railroad and Transportation Museum of El Paso. If history isn’t your cup of tea, you’re sure to enjoy the various festivals that the city hosts during the year. For instance, the Fiesta de las Flores is a three-day festival celebrating El Paso’s Hispanic heritage. There’s also the Neon Desert Music Festival, Texas Showdown Festival and Sun City Music Festival.
If you appreciate performing art, you won’t have to search long in El Paso. You’ll have your choice between various venues like Viva! El Paso, El Paso Symphony Orchestra, Abraham Chavez Theatre, Plaza Theatre and McKelligon Canyon Amphitheatre. If you’d prefer to appreciate the outdoors, El Paso has more than 100 parks to offer including a host of botanical gardens.
And we haven’t even mentioned the golf courses yet. You’ll find 16 in the metro area alone. If golf isn’t your game, you can always catch one of the local teams. Choose from baseball, soccer, football, basketball – even ice hockey, which might surprise you.
It’s surprising because El Paso can get warm. In fact, the city records more than 300 days of sunshine a year on average. This means the winters are mild and dry – perfect for seniors who detest the cold.
