Texas destination makes list of 11 best cities to retire in U.S.

If you’re looking to retire soon, the pivotal question is: Where you should you live?

In Travel & Leisure’s roundup of the best places to retire, 11 American cities topped the list, with one Texas destination—the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area—landing a spot. The list is compiled from a group of organizations that analyze U.S. cities and their suitability for retirement destinations, according to Travel & Leisure.

Of significant note, Dallas took top honors on the list for its small-town vibe and cosmopolitan appeal. The fact that Texas has no state income tax was also cited. The Dallas/Fort Worth housing market also features a wide range of housing available, according to Travel & Leisure.

“This fast-growing destination offers both a suburban and big-city lifestyle, giving retirees the option to choose a small-town feel with city conveniences nearby,” Travel & Leisure’s Patricia Doherty writes.

Kansas National Guard members receive vaccine, Gov. Kelly tours distribution site

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – State soldiers are now getting the coronavirus shot. First and second doses of the coronavirus vaccine were given out to Air and Army National Guard members at Forbes Field in Topeka.

This was the second distribution like it. Some people are in phase one, others are in phase two.

Vaccines come from the United State Department of Defense and are not part of the state’s allotment. So far the guard has been given 1,100 vaccines, with more to come. When a member is able to get a shot depends on how critical their mission is.

“We have not compromised any mission requirements because of COVID. We have compromised some training requirements but it has not impacted our mission negatively,” Weishaar said.
