Up north, they are taking the outdoor dining tables inside and loading up on hot chocolate. Winter is coming and it will soon be time to hunker down indoors until spring.

But for those in retirement communities in Houston, fall means the party is just getting started.

Check out a few fall activities that will make you wish you called an over 55 active adult community in Houston home.

Texas Renaissance Festival

Delighting over ½ million visitors annually, the Texas Renaissance Festival is the largest of its kind in the country. This 70-acre renaissance party features live performances, artisan vendors, authentic costumes, and plenty of food and fun for everyone. The festivities run every weekend through the end of November. Each weekend has its own theme. Choose a retirement community in Houston and celebrate the old days with your new friends.

The Kemah Boardwalk

Hop in the car and travel about 30 miles to the Kemah Boardwalk. This 60-acre Gulf Coast theme park is built entirely along the shores of Galveston Bay and Clear Lake. Visiting grandkids will love this outing but you don’t need them to enjoy a day on the water. Area attractions include the Kemah Marina and the Boardwalk Fantasea Yacht tours.

Book a Food Tour

Fall is the perfect time to book a food tour. Beginning at Houston’s Historic Market Square Park, you will enjoy learning about Houston’s rich history, architecture, and cultural diversity. This is not to mention culinary experiences at some of the city’s most famous restaurants.  The popular Astroville Food Tours feature three restaurant stops, during which you will sample a variety of different foods. It’s a truly delicious way to enjoy a gorgeous fall day.

Take a Segway Tour

No need to sit in a boring bus to get a tour of nearby Galveston. Hop on your own personal segway and cruise through a variety of cool themed tours. Take the “Rat Pack” tour and relive the glory day of Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Junior, and the gang. Take a sunset tour along the city’s seawall or book the Magical History Tour and learn the secrets of Galveston’s notorious past. It’s a great way to absorb history and scenery while enjoying the fabulous fall weather.

A Walk in the Park

Independent senior living in Houston is enhanced by the city’s 50,000 acres of green spaces. Filled with waterfalls, fountains, footbridges, sculptures, waterside walkways, and gorgeous views, Houston’s parks offer endless opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Whether you want to go for a brisk exercise walk, play golf, or just pull up a bench to read a good book or hang with a buddy, fall is the perfect time to take advantage of Mother Nature’s gifts at one of Houston’s many outdoor playgrounds.
