Now who wouldn’t want to retire in Comfort, Texas?   About 50 miles northwest of San Antonio, Comfort sits nestled (comfortably!) in the hill country and is listed in the National Register of Historical Places.  Several pioneer buildings are still standing, including original log cabins, German fahwerk (gingerbread) homes and native limestone buildings.  A large part of the city as been designated a National Historic District.   

Today, it is a popular tourist district with numerous campgrounds along the Guadalupe River.  There are over 2300 people who live in Comfort, and 14.5% are over 65.   The area enjoys a very low crime rate, a low cost of living and low storm rate.   Homes can be had in the $158,000 range and rentals run $600-800 per month.  See what these fine folks have to say about their great little town.  (We are not in any way promoting Wrangler Jeans, but loved this video they made.)  Retire in Comfort, Texas!

Cheryl and her husband have just recently retired and live in the Pacific Northwest. She has been enjoying her herself by traveling around the world, playing with her grandchildren, and she frequently volunteers in her community. There is certainly never a dull moment with Cheryl. She cheerfully co-founded RetireBook and wants to share her energy, hoping that it inspires her readers to live life at its fullest.
