Although Houston, the nation's fourth largest city, has plenty to see and do inside the city itself, sometimes it is nice to "take a drive" and visit some of the sites in the outlying area.

Luckily for Houston area tourists and residents alike, there are a great many attractions within a short drive of the Bayou City.

During the warm weather months, most visitors begin thinking of Texas beaches.

Every event opens your eyes to new technologies, new possibilities, new solutions and new opportunities to change your life.

Where else can you discover ability-enhancing products and services, play a few adaptive sports, learn new dance moves, attend informative workshops and only scratch the surface of what Abilities Expo has to offer?

Whether your disability is physical, sensory, learning, developmental or a combination, Abilities Expo strives to provide the products and services to help you meet and overcome your daily challenges.

In addition, our Assistive Technology Showcase gives you the opportunity to test drive cutting-edge devices to determine what meets your individual needs.

If it's smaller ticket products that you want, there will also be ingenious, low-cost inventions and retail products.

It’s not enough for us to provide a forum where you can gain knowledge and access to life-altering products.

There’s sports, dance, music, celebrities, assistance dogs, therapy horses, face painting for kids and more.

Experience it from the sidelines or—and here’s our preference—join in the fun!

Each Expo features compelling sessions focused on travel, home modifications, finance, dating, physical therapy for kids, cutting-edge technologies, finding the correct mobility device and much, much more.
