Central Texas: Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC)

 

View Community Listings

Central Texas, along with many other parts of Texas, refutes the stereotype (fueled by Western movies) of Texas consisting of nothing more than prairie. The rolling hills of Central Texas contain extensive forests of huge Bur oak trees along with plenty of Ashe Juniper (known locally as "cedar") and Mesquite. Texas live oak is also prevalent. The clear, cool spring-fed rivers and creeks are lined with towering Baldcypress trees and are a welcome relief in the hot Texas summer, as are the many lakes.

In the summer, one of the favorite activities is floating down a creek or river in an inner tube. Spring is a time for residents to drive the winding backroads and take in the rainbow of colors produced by the blooming wildflowers, including Bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush. In the fall and winter, hunters visit in hopes of taking home a white-tailed deer.
