Retirees looking for a place to relocate from which they can access the rest of the country, as well as abroad, will find Dallas-Fort Worth an ideal area in which to settle.

SmartAsset, a personal financial website created a list of the best cities in the U.S. for travel-minded seniors, and both Dallas and Fort Worth received high marks. Dallas came in at No. 3 and Fort Worth was rated No. 5. Houston is in-between the two at No. 4.

Cities often include information such as this in the promotional materials sent to printing services in their efforts to ‘sell’ themselves.

Dallas and Fort Worth are relatively inexpensive to live in and the tax each imposes on retirement income is low. Moreover, they each made the top 10 in flight availability domestically and internationally and for their internationals destination options.

Dallas not only scores well in the quantity of domestic and international flights it offers, but also as unique international destinations go, the number available here puts The Big D in the top 10. Access of this kind usually necessitates living in an expensive city such as New York or Los Angeles. Low median housing expenses also puts Dallas in the list’s top 20 in that category.

Las Vegas at No. 1 and Phoenix at No. 2 joined Dallas, Houston, and Fort Worth in the top five.
