Summer Fun for Seniors

Around this time every year, I usually list some fun summer activities for families with kids.  Why should kids have all the fun?  Here are some fun ideas you older-and-wiser friends to brighten your summer!


  • Take a water aerobics class – try to find one outdoors now that the weather is nice.
  • See a movie at a drive-in theater.
  • Outdoor tai chi or yoga classes.
  • Be a tourist in your own city – take an open-air bus excursion with a friend.
  • Go for ice cream just because – no special occasion required!
  • Make homemade popsicles with the neighborhood kids.
