Retire & Relocate

Retirement or relocation? Rethink your options.

If you don’t have Clyde at the top of your retirement or relocation list, it’s time to look more closely at the advantages this welcoming Texas city has to offer.

Retire and relax: With a low cost of living and excellent housing choices, Clyde is a place where your dollar goes farther—and where you don’t have to settle in your search for the amenities that make life richer. Tee off on the scenic fairways of the appropriately named Shady Oaks Golf Course, where graceful oaks wind through a course designed for optimum challenge. The fishing and boating are superb on the 450-acre Clyde Lake, where crappie and large-mouth bass are abundant, and always biting. In fact, Clyde’s outstanding recreation is ready anytime you are: our temperate weather makes recreation a year-round pleasure, while our packed annual schedule of festivals means more fun under the sun—or the stars, in the case of our Holiday Parade of Lights.

Savor the sweet pies and sensational music at our signature Pecan Festival; browse and bag the buys at our annual spring city-wide garage sale which draws crowds from all over the region; celebrate summer at our Fourth of July Festival by the Lake. Why just live your life, when you can love your life, with more ways to play, every day, every season.

One more reason you can relax: healthcare that has your needs covered, combining cutting-edge excellence with genuine caring.  A convenient patient-centered medical center in Clyde is supported by two leading health systems in Abilene, which together provide the services of more than 3,000 health professionals, more than 750 beds, and a full spectrum of specialized healthcare services.

Retire and recharge:  Our golf course is great, but if you have other courses in mind, Clyde offers golden opportunities for golden years learning, with three four-year universities, a technical college, a medical training facility, and a community college just minutes away. Cultural activities in this area are diverse and delightful, from the Abilene Philharmonic Orchestra to music and theatre performances at The Platform, Clyde’s inviting event venue space inspired by the city’s historic railroad platforms.  And don't forget about the Clyde Center for the Performing Arts where you'll find first rate local productions.

Retire and reflect: This is the time of life when you may want to put new talents to work or on display, or apply your carefully won wisdom to real-world issues. Clyde welcomes people like you. Clyde is a place where you can feel at home, and where, if you choose, you can make a difference in a vibrant historic community that’s facing the future with confidence. In local churches and civic groups you’ll find stimulating engagement and a warm reception. Your retirement in Clyde is just the beginning of the kind of full and fulfilling life that you’ve always dreamed you could have.

Relocate and reap the bounty of benefits: No matter your age or your stage of life, Clyde offers the right setting for personal growth and success.  Our neighborhoods grow strong, happy families, while our school system turns out a bumper crop of work- and college-ready students every year.  Taxes are low, and civic spirit is high. Clyde is a place to put down deeper roots to flourish.

 In Clyde, we take pride in our past, but we keep our eyes on the future. We think you should, too.
