Your Ideal Luxury Retirement Destination: North Dallas

Nov 30, 2018

What do you think of when you hear the phrase “luxury retirement destination”? Do you think palm trees and beaches? Hip cities where there are lots to do? A location that’s near everything you need and want: medical centers, international airports, culture and entertainment, local eateries and more? What cities cross your mind when you think of these things? Sure, there’s New York, Palm Beach, San Francisco … but Hidden Springs of McKinney welcomes you to think of a retirement destination that’s becoming more and more popular every day: McKinney, Texas.

These days, Texas is hot for more than just its weather. All across the state, cities and towns are being recognized as retirement destinations, with more and more active seniors moving here in order to live the lifestyle they want and deserve. One of these cities is the Dallas/Fort Worth Metro area, which includes McKinney, Texas in North Dallas.

“The Dallas/Fort Worth area was ranked as the 10th best metro area to retire to among the nation’s 50 largest, and it’s easy to see why,” says Doris Lea, Executive Director of Hidden Springs of McKinney, an active senior living community opening in McKinney, TX in October 2019. “According to what matters to seniors – crime rate, weather, cost of living, affordability, senior well-being and a variety of other factors – the area scores high for all the things active seniors are looking for these days.”

All these factors and more are reasons why Hidden Springs chose to build their community in McKinney, says Lea. “Independent seniors can find an engaging and active lifestyle waiting for them in North Dallas. With good public transportation, the proximity to culture and art, the affordability of the area, the southern charm and its excellent weather, it’s the perfect place for locals and others to retire. Everything North Dallas has to offer can be easily enjoyed in our senior life community. Best of all, residents will be able to take advantage of their surroundings for many years to come since our community provides a progressive lifestyle. No matter how health needs may change, our residents can enjoy their retirement years in McKinney, TX in style and comfort.”

McKinney by the Numbers

McKinney, TX is located about 30 miles north of Dallas. From 2000 to 2003, as well as 2006, it was listed as the nation’s fastest-growing city by the Census Bureau. It boasts a population of 180,000 (according to a survey done in January 2018) and was ranked by Money Magazine as the #1 “Best Place To Live” in America in 2014. Here’s a shortlist of the many other awards McKinney has earned:

  • #17 on Texas Highways Magazine’s Best Destination Top 40 list in 2014
  • Sixth Fastest-Growing City in the Nation in 2018 (WalletHub)
  • #8 Best Place for First-Time Home Buyers (WalletHub)

  • #1 U.S. City for First-Time Home Buyers in 2017 (WalletHub)
  • #4 of Best Places in Texas to Raise a Family (Smartassets.com)

Southern Charm, Modern Hospitality

Looking beyond the numbers, McKinney is still attractive on many levels. It’s one of the nation’s hotbeds for jobs in aviation, medical services and green energy, and many Fortune 500 companies are just a commute away. College and career prep are pushed in their schools, with AP courses beginning in middle school and internships in a variety of industries in high school. The charming historic downtown contains a mix of boutiques, art galleries and farm-to-table restaurants, as well as small-town basics like shoe repair, a butcher and farm-supplies stores. It’s within driving distance of everything the metro has to offer but is surrounded by parks, camping areas and historic attractions. As one resident says, it’s so bucolic that it’s “easy to forget you’re in a city!”
