You just might need a personal assistant or a really big calendar to keep track of all the new challenges and new adventures you’ll find in an Active Adult community. You won’t be filling your days with TV time, afternoon bingo and the early bird special. Today’s communities have any number of unique activities, social gatherings and clubs to choose from —offering opportunities to improve your skills, learn new things, and meet new people.
There’s something for everyone. From groups who play golf or pickleball, or who fish in local waterways to intellectual pursuits like computer groups, book clubs and artist’s gatherings. Social groups that hold wine tastings, study genealogy and put on theater productions. If you’re interested in it, chances are it’s happening somewhere in an active adult community. Games, gardening, dancing, photography and even car clubs. And if there’s a club you’re interested in starting, there are opportunities for that too!
Residents in Del Webb communities have formed groups like the ceramics club, creative arts club, performing arts club, travel group, writer’s group, wine tasting club and tennis group, just to name a few. A couple of Del Webb communities even have motorcycle rider groups. Countless formal groups and clubs help residents connect with each other and stretch themselves both physically and intellectually. Not to mention each community’s amenities ranging from fitness centers, pools, golf courses, walking trails, tennis courts and more.
Along with the social clubs residents host regular gatherings in their homes—dinner parties, cocktail hours, luncheons, book clubs, you name it. From block parties to marshmallow roasts to movie night —there’s always an invitation right around the corner.
What about new arrivals? It’s easy to become part of a community right away. Many communities have Welcome Clubs where residents help new arrivals make friends easily.
A number of active adult communities have singles groups where individuals can meet new people and get together for dinner outings, trips to the theater and any number of social and cultural events. These groups help single residents make new friends and meet other singles in the same community – and sometimes even find new love.
