The approximately 56 adult retirement communities in Phoenix and the numerous community groups makes retiring here fun and very convenient. Seniors want to have fun playing games together, learning new skills, keeping fit, making new friends, traveling, and even performing on stage; here are places they can do all the above.
Depending on an individual's physical abilities, a senior can participate in any game or sport that he or she desires. The Arizona Senior Olympics is an Olympics event for seniors who are still athletic and have the spirit of competition. Seniors who prefer games such as Bingo that do not demand so much energy from them can play them in senior centers and recreational facilities such as the Deer Valley Senior Center and Devonshire Senior Center.
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the Arizona State University offers seniors 50 years and above the opportunity to learn whatever course they are interested in for only $15 per semester. Seniors do not need to sit for tests, grades do not matter here, and they do not have any educational requirements. Seniors can also learn everything they need to learn about computers from learning centers and programs such as the Senior Net Education and Empowerment program.
Fitness for seniors is imperative because their physical state will more often than not determine how independent they will be as they continue to age. Many seniors' centers in Phoenix have fitness centers, although it is a very good idea to visit fitness centers like Ability 360 and Paradise Valley Community College where seniors get access to professionals and programs fashioned for seniors. Seniors also have access to fitness experts who can help them to work out from the comfort of their homes and guide them through routines to improve their fitness.
Scottsdale Bible Church has a wonderful ministry for seniors, which includes choir rehearsals and performances. Most churches in Phoenix have choirs for seniors, and these are great opportunities for older adults to use their voices for the benefit of the community. Seniors love to dance as well as learn new types of dances, and the Glendale adult center and many other centers provide dancing and acting classes for seniors.
One of the best ways that seniors love spending their time is meeting up with fellow seniors and engaging in social events. Senior Meetups in Phoenix are the best places for seniors to come together in groups that meet their needs. Most seniors even look for love and find it through dating communities and forums where they get to interact and engage in fun activities together.
Seniors love to travel and explore the world because they have time on their hands and an appetite to visit all the places they never got an opportunity to go to when they were younger. Seniors love to travel in groups, and travel clubs such as TJ's travel club and Travel Meetup clubs make traveling fun, exciting, and worth it.
