Hillsborough County is a wonderful exciting area to retire. Just like Pinellas County, the weather is gorgeous and walking paths make it easy to stay active as in retirement. Hillsborough County also offers interesting cultural experiences too. Seniors living in Hillsborough County should make sure to schedule time to explore these three places. Retirement is one of the most wonderful times to continue learning. There’s never been a better time to immerse yourself in knowledge and culture than your retirement years. So, here are Hillsborough County’s top three cultural activities for seniors.Henry Plant
Henry B. Plant Museum
The Henry B. Plant Museum is right on the University of Tampa’s campus. The museum is actually a National Historic Landmark because the Henry B. Plant Museum is actually housed in the 1891 Tampa Bay Hotel. That hotel was once the elegant Victorian railroad resort, and you’ll still find items and furnishings that were once used by the hotels guests when it was in operation. The Henry B. Plant Museum reflects the opulence of America from over a century ago. Seniors, get a glimpse into a time of American history from when your own grandparents were young at the Henry B. Plant museum. Learn about America’s Gilded Age and the life of Henry Plant. You can easily make this a day long event.
Museum of Science and Industry
The Museum of Science and Industry is a hands-on museum, so bring your wet naps! This museum will allow you interact with over 100 science activities. Plus you can check out the planetarium. Seniors, do you want to experience the awe and wonder you did when you were a child again? There’s no better place to reignite that curiosity than at the Museum of Science and Industry.
David A Straz Center for Performing Arts
David A Straz Center for Performing Arts is a venue featuring Broadway shows, operas, and orchestra bands. You can catch a show every day of the week if you wanted to. Plus, unwind at the restaurants and bars. If you or a loved one needs assistance to access the large performing arts center, you can even access courtesy wheelchairs with curbside drop-off. It’s equipped with a new Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) assisted-listening system. For more information about accessibility, call (813) 229-7827.
