Between 1837 and 1840, Houston was the capital of the short-lived Republic of Texas. Today, the city is home to more than 2.3 million people, approximately 230,000 of whom are seniors aged 65 and over. With an annual temperature range of 43 to 93 degrees and no annual snowfall, Houston is a great place for sun-loving seniors, though summers in Texas get a bit toasty. There are plenty of things to do here, including trips to museums such as the Houston Museum of Natural History, or the Houston Zoo, which is home to 6,000 animals.

Typical of large metropolitan areas, it's a bit pricey to live in Houston. The cost of living is 5% higher than the national average, mostly due to transportation costs.
