1. DFW seems to have many more colleges than the Houston area or are we incorrect? Is this stated on some site somewhere on the net?
2. Texas does not seem to have a program for the over 65 to study at a local college for free like Oregon does or does Texas? THAT would be a great drawing card for many of us, I should think.
3. Have been doing lots of homework on where the majority of boomers are moving, and they seem to mainly be going to Austin; however, does anyone know a website where this is verified? We would like to have an idea of how many boomers re moving to Houston vs. DFW vs. Austin??????

There are a ton of boomers coming to Dallas as well.

Most of the brand new little 1 stories I see going up in the upscale hoods are boomers from either the east or west coasts. Austin is more liberal yes, but the COL is also higher there if you compare apples to apples. Boomers like affordable because their income is limited.

I say we get Texas to allow the over 65 crowd to return to college classes for minimal cost--or free like in Oregon. That is a big draw, obviously, because the latest statistics on where boomers were moving to has Oregon right up there in the top 5 States. Get with it Texas!!!!!
