    • Baytown has an array of resources for seniors, including the Baytown Senior Center, which offers dine-out activities, exercise programs, daily lunch, games, Bible study groups, arts and crafts, library services and shopping excursions. Transportation to the center is provided for those seniors in need.

    • Seniors living on fixed incomes may be pleased to learn that Baytown’s cost of living index of 86 is considerably lower than the national average, which is 100. This leaves seniors with more money in their personal budgets.

    • There are multiple cultural attractions in and around Baytown that seniors may enjoy, including the Art League of Baytown, Baytown Little Theater and Baytown Historical Museum.

    • Like many cities nationwide, Baytown has a crime issue to contend with. Baytown has an average annual crime rate of 4,092 per 100,000 people. This is above the national average of 2,837. Seniors should take care when traversing the city.
