Seniors Get Out And Enjoy Yourself This Summer
Summer is here, and it is time to get outside and soak up that sunlight! The days are long and beautiful, and there are just too many fun, relaxing and wonderful things to do than to stay cooped up in the house. While you are out and about taking in the summer weather, be mindful of the heat and wear sunscreen! Always practice good safety habits. Here are some ideas that hopefully will help keep you active whether inside or outside and in a positive frame of mind!
Flea Markets and Craft shows
Walking around these events can be a fun way to get out, get a little exercise in, and find some good deals.
Nature Walks and Hikes
Set aside some time to go on a local nature walk. If it is not as easy to get back to mother nature due to where you live, consider a trip to the zoo for the day, where you can take in the animals at a leisurely pace.
Relaxing and Mobility-Friendly Ideas
Whether you are going on a catch and release trip or to bring home dinner for, fishing can be a great way to spend a summer day! While you’re there why not have a picnic for lunch as well.
Watch an Outdoor Movie or Concert
Community events have gotten more and more popular recently and getting out in public to take in not only the atmosphere but a show is a great way to get out of the house for an evening.
Join a Book Club
Summer book clubs sometimes meet in parks, but even if they meet indoors at least you’re among like-minded company and out of your house.
Check your local library and see if they would be interested in kids story time readings or other special events.
Anything from the neighborhood ball game to grandchildren swim meets can be a great way to spend the day. If you live in a larger town you might also have a local baseball team or even a professional sporting event.
Depending on where you live many tourist cities offer everything from trolley rides to horse-pulled carriage and walking tours. Get out and take the time to see your city and all its sights.
