Default Warm small towns in the winter

We are looking into going to TX next winter Jan-March. Which towns are not too crowded, nice, and fairly warm? We will also be looking for a nice campground.

Anything along the coast. Southeast Texas, with the exception of a rare day or two, stays warm all winter. It is now December and my A/C is still on....

There are also a lot of places in the Hill Country that cater to retirees. We live in the Marble Falls/Horseshoe Bay area and there are a LOT of golf courses and campgrounds. There are also a lot of rental units that cater to "winter Texans".

Do you want to stay in the same place all winter? There are lots of places you can go, I know some people who spend the winter out around Big Bend, it's extremely remote but lots of desert scenery and the winter highs in the lowlands average about 70F (though the nights are cold). Don't know if you want to spend the whole winter there or not but it'd make a nice stop for several weeks, especially if you like desert scenery and nature stuff

I hate the desert. I grew up on the east coast and I really like "green" in nature and the mountains. I love the outdoors and nature but I want it to be alive. To me if it is brown and dry it is dead.

I think we might have to check into the Hill Country.

Thanks for the info everyone.

Parts of the hill country can be quite brown in central Texas, or it can be greener than Houston, which was the case this year. Depends on rainfall. It can also get downright cold there to a Houstonian (teens and 20s) in the winter.
