I think it is age friendly. For me it is easy to walk to grocery stores, coffee shops and restaurants. Great choice of doctors and medical facilities. Public schools are very good, and we are close to three four-year universities plus several two-years college. Public transpiration is not great unless you want to travel to downtown, the Galleria, or the medical center in Houston.
