Dallas has landed on Forbes’ list of 2020’s best cities in which to retire. Forbes compared more than 750 locales in America, measuring everything from housing costs and taxes to healthcare and air quality.
A major draw to Dallas is the city’s relatively low median home price. As of August 2020, the median home price was $219,000, 21 percent below the national median. The city’s culture is another positive for the city, as well as the state’s lack of income and estate taxes.
However, Forbes identified serious crime rates above the national average as a major drawback for Dallas.
To compile the top 25 rankings, Forbes took into account living affordability, quality-of-life indicators, and factors that promote an active retirement.
