Location, location, location. We know that the higher standard of living expected at Tradition Senior Living continues well beyond our front door. That is why our residents love our newest location, which is especially great for family visits, or even just a day out shopping.

Located “within The Loop”, The Tradition-Buffalo Speedway offers convenient access to everything a world-class city like Houston has to offer. And with our 24-hour concierge service, accessing these cultural amenities is even easier for our residents. We are so excited to share everything about our new neighborhood, so we’ve put together a list of all the best things to do nearby The Tradition-Buffalo Speedway. One thing’s for sure — it’s never boring living here. 

Visit the Museum District

An essential part of living your best life is always staying inspired. What better place to find inspiration than The Houston Museum District. There are 19 museums, galleries and cultural centers all just a short drive from The Tradition, each with at least one day of free admission per month. Spend time with the old masters at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston whose collection contains more than 62,000 works of art and boasts the most diverse collection in the Texas. 

Continue Your Education

Life at The Tradition-Buffalo Speedway positions our residents to take advantage of the stellar Continuing Education courses offered by Rice University. The Community Learning & Engagement program at Rice offers non-credit courses in arts, humanities, creative writing, photography, and many other subjects to keep your mind active and engaged for a lifetime. 

Avid readers will appreciate McGovern-Stella Link Branch Library in the Braeswood neighborhood, twice awarded the best library in Houston by the Houston Press. Recent studies reported by the Harvard Business Journal show that ongoing learning activities can help delay the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and preserve a person’s quality of life, therefore learning should be a lifelong journey. 

Hit the Links

The mild winter climate in Houston makes it an excellent golf destination; and if you don’t mind the heat, living here offers a 12-month golf calendar. The Tradition-Buffalo Speedway is located within a 30-minute drive of five top private and public golf courses. Closest of all is the Wildcat Golf Club, a luxury public course known for its city views. 

Shopping Destinations

Beyond the nearby big box stores for all your daily needs, we’re close to some of Houston’s best shopping destinations. The Galleria is the largest shopping center in Texas and sells a variety of the finest luxury brands. Rice Village District is even closer, with a collection of unique boutique shops and national retail brands. 

Active Outdoors 

Access to greenspace is another key part of living a healthy lifestyle. Morning walkers love our convenience to the nearby Braes Bayou Trail that stretches across 14 miles of southwestern Houston. For plant enthusiasts, the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center offers multiple ways to volunteer for residents who may miss their home gardens.  Get back to nature through active support activities or share your plant passion through the Arboretum’s education and conservation programs.

Performing Arts

The class and sophistication that comes with a night at the theater is on full display in Houston’s Theater district. The Alley Theater recently underwent a beautiful $46 million renovation and offers audiences a wider range of performance experiences than ever before. The area is also home to the highly acclaimed Houston Grand Opera that has built its reputation as one of the finest opera houses in the United States over the last 60 years.

Professional Sports

Sports fans know that in Texas, it’s always football season. Take in a game and experience all the action of Houston’s professional sports teams in person. Watch the Houston Texans football team take the field at nearby NRG stadium or head downtown to Minute Maid Park and see the Astros compete for another World Series title. Whether you root for the home team or not, it’s always an exciting time. 

Let’s Go Out for Dinner

We are very proud of the chef-prepared gourmet cuisine served nightly at The Tradition. That said, we understand why our residents might choose to go out for dinner with all the incredible restaurants in Houston. All-time classic Houston restaurants like Tony’s, Molina’s Cantina, and Brennan’s of Houston are just around the corner. 

At The Tradition, we see our new Buffalo Speedway location as an opportunity for our residents to experience the greater Houston community and continue pursuing their life-long passion, whether that’s exploring the arts, learning something new, or taking swings at the golf course. Learn how our senior living community can mark the beginning of a new chapter for you or your loved one today.
