Certified Retirement Communities

The Pottsboro Area is the south gateway to beautiful Lake Texoma, just 75 minutes north of downtown Dallas.  Lake Texoma is one of the largest and most attractive lakes in the United States and attracts over six million visitors per year who come to enjoy the excellent fishing and recreational boating.  When not enjoying the waters and beaches of Lake Texoma, visitors enjoy the many first class resorts, marinas and golf courses.


“We are very excited to be a part of the GO TEXAN partnership and to be designated by the State of Texas as a Certified Retirement Community,” said Pottsboro Mayor Frank Budra. “Pottsboro’s motto is, COME PLAY.  COME STAY and we are dedicated to welcome mature active adults to our community of Pottsboro, which affords quality of life opportunities including recreation, volunteerism, cultural activities and lifelong learning. This mission statement now guides the City of Pottsboro, the Community Development Corporation (CDC), Pottsboro Chamber of Commerce, Pottsboro Area Development Alliance (PADA), as well as other Retirement Advisory Board members and community supporters to build on the positive attributes of the area to become an even more welcoming and rewarding place to retire.”
