Austin a recommended retirement haven

Illustrated with the distinctive sun-and-moon sign of El Sol y La Luna, this year’s U.S. News 2009 top-ten list of best places to retire includes Austin. We’re placed in such company as Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Loveland, Colorado, so I’m not sure it’s an honor.

We’re not included in the best places for diners-out to retire, though.

The criteria for this year’s selections are said to be affordable communities with strong economies and plenty of entertainment. We’re cited for our music venues and our “warm climate.” Coming in for special mention are the Lions Muny golf course, Barton Springs, and the nearby Hill Country.
