Our Mild Climate in Central Texas

Leave your snow shovel behind.  You will not have to worry about the snow in central Texas.  About once every six or seven years we may get 1/2 inch of snow and it melts quickly.  You don't need to worry about ice either.  The lakes and rivers never freeze over.   The lakes have a tendency to stabilize the temperature, and homes close to the lake can experience temperatures up to 5 degrees warmer than surrounding areas in the winter.  The daytime temperatures in December and January are usually in the 50s to 70s depending on which way the breeze is blowing.  Winter Texans love our winter climate.

Inexpensive Living for Snow Birds in Central Texas
You will find the prices in our area to be reasonable.  We do not take advantage of tourists here.  You will be paying the same low prices as the locals.   Our auto gas prices are usually about 20 cents cheaper than other areas of the country.  Eating in our restaurants is very reasonable.  You can expect reasonable prices in renting a cabin, condo or house for the winter.  Winter Texans receive much cheaper rental prices in the winter than the summer prices for the same properties. 

Friendly People in Central Texas
You have heard of "Southern Hospitality", haven't you?  Southern Hospitality is a reality in central and south Texas.  The people here are friendly!  As you are driving down the highway, don't be surprised if people wave at you.  This is a popular retirement area and people have moved here from all over the country.  It seems like just about everyone is from somewhere else.  No one is a stranger here!  You will find events and potlucks put on by the local towns for the Winter Texans.  You are welcome here!

Visitors love the Deer in Texas!
You will see plenty of deer in our area.

Beautiful Scenery and Wildlife in Central Texas
One of the nicest things about our area is that it is beautiful.  The winding roads through the hills and lakes, the beautiful live oak trees, and small towns in the area add a lot to the enjoyment of the area.  The live oaks don't lose their leaves in the winter, so there is plenty of greenery throughout the winter to enjoy.  Quite often the grass is green in the winter, depending on the rainfall.  The wildlife is abundant.  You can enjoy dozens of species of birds, plenty of deer, and other little creatures. 

Tourists also enjoy an occassional shopping and sightseeing trip into Austin, our state capital, and San Antonio.
