​​​​​​​​​WASHINGTON, D.C. – Personal finance site Kiplinger named the North Texas city of Sherman as the best city to retire in the state. 

The cost of living for retirees there is 13 percent below the U.S. average, and Texas is known for being "tax-friendly." Housing-related costs are particularly affordable for retirees at 24.8 percent below average. Lifetime heatlh care costs for a retired couple, however, is ​above the national average at $393,414. 

The median home value is $98,100 in Sherman proper and $79,100 in Denison, well below Texas' $128,900 median. 

Sherman's proximity to Dallas as well as the 12,000-acre Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge also make the city an appealing place for retirees.

Of the city's roughly 40,000 residents, 13.2 percent are over 65 years old.  ​
