Named for its abundance of magnolia trees, Magnolia, Texas, is less than an hour from Houston and is considered the fourth-largest metro area in the United States. Its proximity to Houston, combined with its small size and recent certification as a scenic Texas city, make it an attractive spot for retirement.
Its scenic surroundings mean there is plenty to explore and see in and around Magnolia. Seniors who enjoy golfing will appreciate the many golf courses in the area, and those who prefer bird-watching or going for a quiet stroll can visit Unity Park, an award-winning wildlife reserve and municipal park. Holiday and community special events are held at Unity Park and also at the Magnolia Stroll, a half-mile pedestrian walkway featuring local restaurants, galleries and shops. You also won’t want to miss Farmers Market on Tamina, open year-round and featuring local foods, crafts and wellness products.
