Ongoing Learning for Active Adults
Del Webb residents may retire, but they never stop learning. That can be especially true for active adults who are newly retired and looking for ways to keep their mind and skills sharp. You may have never imagined that you would become a student again, but why not? With more free time to explore, consider all the possible learning opportunities that are at your disposal.
When it comes to learning, you often need look no further than your own neighborhood. Community centers and public libraries across the country offer a wide variety of group classes that give you the chance to pick up a new skill or hone the ones you already have. Knitting and crafting circles, book clubs, and historic reenactments are just a few of the many opportunities that might exist in your Del Webb community.
The Internet age has given us instant access to everything from news to movies. It also brings a world of learning opportunities right to your computer. Many well-known colleges and universities offer classes and educational programs online, and there are even websites that allow you to register and take courses for free. These classes are offered by top universities from around the world like Princeton, Johns Hopkins, and Duke University.
One of the most educational opportunities you can have is to experience the sights and sounds, customs and cultures of places beyond your Del Webb home. Traveling offers the chance to learn more about your chosen destination, from its history to its cuisine and everything in-between. Whether your interests lie in visiting an exotic locale or just a holiday trip across the country to visit family, explore the possibilities that live along the way. There are even educational travel organizations that cater specifically to travelers aged 50 and better.
