Originally founded in 1895 as a Quaker settlement, Friendswood has grown into a desirable, modern-day suburban retreat that’s perfect for families and retirees alike. In fact, set amidst majestic oak trees and with plentiful parks and outdoor recreation, Friendswood is known for its small-town feel, but close proximity to music and the arts, museums, major sports, and even beaches and amusement parks. Recent studies even ranked Friendswood as the second-safest city in all of Texas (and among the top 50 nationwide).
Life in the Friendswood area is rife with possibilities for fun and recreation. From farmer’s markets to festivals, and car shows to live music and/or theater performances, Friendswood provides year-round options that cater to most everyone. The Friendswood Historical Society, as well as the Veteran’s Memorial that’s adjacent to City Hall, are two places not to be missed while touring within the city limits.
Our central location southeast of the big city means you can also take in the wonderment of Space Center Houston in the morning and still have time to enjoy the sun and tranquility along Galveston’s sandy beaches later that same day. It’s a degree of flexibility and overall lifestyle quality that can’t be found just anywhere, but it’s one of the hallmarks of life here in Friendswood!
Our senior living community is located on South Friendswood Drive, an epicenter for shopping, dining and everyday convenience. Here, ready access to casual restaurants, groceries, banks, medical care and parks and recreation make ours a prime location, and that’s yet another reason why Morada Friendswood is a superb choice for area seniors and their families.
