We, as retirees, live in both DFW and Las Vegas NV. DFW mostly because I have family and business in the area. But Las Vegas’ 55+ communities are filled with CA transplants — and there’s more to do and the weather is better (DFW is much more humid). I guess you just have to decide how you want to spend your time; but if you like being outside a lot then DFW is not the best choice.
... Thank You, WorldKlas! ... And, please forgive me, eileen824, for possibly "hijacking" the thread, which is about areas North of FTW ...
Having formerly lived in the Austin area, as well as just South of Waco, I'm familiar with the humidity, Summer temperatures, and the duration of the Summer "season" ... ... We return to visit Family during every season - both hot and less-hot.
Saying that, I mean to say that the Dallas area can be just as humid, hot, and stifling as anywhere-else in Texas, East of the Balcones Fault.

Again, Thanks for that information, and I'll do my best to stay on-topic, Goin' forward ...

No problem with hijacking, I enjoy reading the experiences and opinions of others, as long as everyone plays nice, lol!

I've already learned from the comments above, that we need to check out Granbury. As an "older" couple, with a daughter still in high school, we feel we made a great choice in our current location. However, when she graduates, we are sure that we won't stay in this house. I liked a little further north...western Flower Mound, Argyle, Denton areas so far, but it sure is getting pricey up here! We plan on exploring area options over the next two years.

Also, funny LV was mentioned as a second home option - our son in college just informed us that he wants to transfer to UNLV junior year!
