Moving to an active adult community has its possibilities. Whether your goals include becoming more social, physically fit, or having diverse experiences, life in an active adult community is designed to help you stay healthy and maintain an active lifestyle. Take a look at some of the activities available in these communities.

Fitness Classes

Active adult communities have well-equipped exercise rooms and fitness centers that often host a range of fitness activities from Zumba classes, Pilates, Yoga, water aerobics and low-impact aerobics among other things. Fitness classes and exercise rooms help people living in these communities stay healthy.


Age-restricted communities often offer lower-impact sporting activities that help people living there stay as healthy and as fit as possible. Sporting activities like basketball, tennis, table tennis and softball, bocce ball, pickleball as well as bowling and croquet are often available.

Arts and Hobbies

Many active adult communities have designated art studios. The communities make sure that creating exciting new objects is an integral part of adults living there. They also make sure people with hobbies that require constant tinkering, dedication and a place to work on their hobbies are all made available for them.


Traveling is the top activity available in active adult communities. Encouraging retirees to be more outgoing through travel is an excellent way to stimulate their minds and bodies. Travel groups arrange activities from foreign vacations, local outings and even cruising. Going as a group allows seniors the security and assistance needed to safely travel while giving singles the companionship not found in traveling alone.

These communities bring like-minded people together and offer them a variety of groups and clubs geared toward individual interests and socializing. Social groups and special interest groups give residents a chance to meet regularly, discuss topics that interest them, socialize and plan events that will benefit them.
