College Station: THE next retirement destination

In years past, young men flocked to the college town of College Station to attend Texas A&M. In recent years, senior adults are making their way back to College Station for retirement. Why has a college town become the next retirement destination? It’s simple.


In the heart of Texas, College Station is a short drive from three major cities. College Station rests in the center of the Texas Triangle, between Austin, Dallas, and Houston. Offering a small town feel without big city traffic, it is easy to get around town. You are just a short trip away from a road trip to visit your grandchildren, or to catch a flight for your next adventure.


Two major healthcare systems, Baylor Scott & White Health and CHI St. Joseph Health, care for our College Station community with a Level II Trauma Center, Advanced Primary Stroke Center, certified Chest Pain Center, and specialty physicians. Multiple wellness and senior centers allow you to meet your physical, social, and emotional needs.


You can make a hole in one at one of five golf courses in town or visit multiple shopping boutiques in town. Museums, art galleries, and Texas A&M University are sure to provide educational events to keep your mind sharp. Whether you choose to spend your golden years enjoying the great outdoors, art exhibits, MSC OPAS, or a Fightin’ Texas Aggie Football Game, College Station has THE retirement activities for you.
