Activities for Seniors in Houston
Houston offers a plethora of activities for active seniors to enjoy, including all of the following:
Arts – Houston isn't quite New York City, but it does have a world class arts community. Seniors can enjoy live opera at the Houston Opera House, elegant dancing at the Houston Ballet, and exceptional classical music at the Houston Symphony Orchestra.
Bayport Cruise Terminal – If you are a fan of cruises, than Houston is an ideal city for independent living. The Bayport Cruise Terminal is the port of call for both Princess Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Line. It is the perfect place to depart from if you want to explore the Caribbean or even visit Europe.
Museum District – The Museum District in Houston has half a dozen exhibits, though admittedly only five of them are museums. The sixth location is the Houston Zoo, which is a world class example of an animal sanctuary.
Sports – Between Minute Maid Park, Toyota Center, and NRG Stadium, you can enjoy live professional sports every month of the year. Sports fans are energetic in Houston and love their teams, which means there will always be plenty of people to share your love of sports with.
