Look at the services for any hospital. Need good cardiology, neuro, and general surgery.


Advice? Wise men don't need it. Fools won't heed it.

Helping with my wife’s parents as they get older, being near good health care is important as a person gets older and I’m not getting any younger.

I also googled how people voted in the last presidential election in a few countie, not sure how accurate this is.

League City, Galveston Co. 35% dem, 60% rep, the rest independent

Llano Co. was 19.5 dem the rest Rep, Same for Burnet Co.

Nacogdoches Co. 30% Dem, 65% Rep.

Not sure on local elections, I need to google that next.

Thanks Billy


Thanks, Billy

We enjoy Lake Belton, 20 minutes to either Temple or Belton. Great medical facilities close by which is more important than we realized when we settled here. Lake lots are pretty scarce around the lake, but they do exist. A beautiful lake, but not the best fishing. Crowded on weekends but not so much during the week. Lots of tournaments on Belton. Gets cold, but warm days interspersed. Gets hot and stays hot during July and early Aug. School taxes are significant.

Have you thought about the Bonham area? With Boi D'arc lake opening up, I would love to retire in that area. I really enjoy lake Bonham also.

My parents are in Llano and we go up there all the time, in fact we are heading up there this weekend. There is the Nimitz VA Hospital in Fredericksburg that he goes to if you are a veteran. It's suppose to be one of the best.

Real estate is skyrocketing up there due to all the influx of people moving out around Austin. Like Brandon said the Baylor/Scott hospital is right there on HWY 71 next to the Marble Falls exit HWY 281 and is only 30 minutes to Llano. Marble Falls is nice and on the other side of the river there is Burnet, Liberty HIll, and Kingsland. I heard that Kingsland is the cheaper of the cities around that area. If you want slow and laid back Llano is the one to live in. They DO NOT get in a rush for anything.


To pass more on to my two kids than was passed onto me.

Nimitz museum is in Fredericksburg. Hill Country Memorial Hospital is in Fredericksburg. The VA hospital is in Kerrville. The wife and I have lived in Llano County for many years. Her family is from here. Taxes are still pretty reasonable and you can still find acreage at pretty good prices as well. Gillespie County, Fredericksburg, is down the road from us and it’s pretty expensive there. Any of the aforementioned areas are pretty decent in the Texas Hill country.

Bowie County or Titus County might work.

I’m not sure I could point those counties out on the map. My guess North Texas along the Red River, Lake Texhoma, I better google map it.

Thanks Billy

Burnet county is where I hunt. In the upper NW corner on the river. I have been on Buchanan several times. I have always fished open water but I am sure it has some bass. I went up the river in my Laser BB as far as I could. It is a neat ride. Our cabin on the lease was on the Colorado until it burned down. Place is about as isolated as you can get in the hill country. Public road ends 2 ranches to the east. There is a 2500+ acre ranch in San Saba county with a recently built lodge that just came up for sale. It is only about $9m. Don't retire there if you or your wife cannot tolerate cedar pollen or have a plan to spend a couple of months somewhere else.

My wife has taken East Texas Sam Rayburn off the list, we've had a weekend in Rayburn Country for 10 years now and I've had blast fishing tournaments and even had an East Texas Deer lease that good enough and close to my place at Rayburn. But long term, not sure I want to build a nice house around Rayburn either.

The places we are going to look for starters, Central Texas, Llano and Burnet Counties. Both seem to have low taxes and a little more upscale than East Texas but maybe more remote for healthcare etc. I could end up with a better deer lease more than likley. I know nothing about fishing the Colorado River and Lake Buchanan but they have fishing and tournaments too from what I understand.

I also want to go look around Streetman Texas, not far from Richland Chambers, may be to far off the beaten path the older we get.

I've found a few pieces of property to look at in the 10 acre range, Buchanan Dam, Sunrise Beach and couple other places in that neck of the woods. I want to be close to boat ramp for the most part.

I think Llano Co. as slightly lower Property tax than Burnet Co.

All I know is I want to get the heck out of League City and off this dang gulf coast.

Comments please if you know something about these areas, all I know is I've driven between Llano and Burnet driving to Midland for sales call and same driving 71 through Marble Falls as I recall.

I there are other place in the state I should look chime in.


I've lived on Lake Buchanan for about 25 years now, fishing is good and doesn't get crowded like some of the lakes around here, I live on the east side but property and taxes and cheaper on the west side of the lake. I think you would love it here.

I would also look at the Bryan and Brenham areas.
Anything west of I35 and 77 can be rough during a drought.
Closer to the coast

Lake Somerville, Bastrop, Raven, Gibbons Creek, Fayette County, Colorado River, Conroe

Lake Conroe is the reason I bought a House in Rayburn Country. The lakes mentioned are not bad. We looked around Brendan once before but couldn’t find the land we wanted. It’s worth another look no doubt


Thanks, Billy
