Fun Summer Activities That Are Perfect for Seniors

With just a few more weeks of warm weather ahead of us, it’s time to ask the big question: did I finish my summer checklist? For seniors, it can be a struggle to find outdoor activities that fit their energy levels and physical abilities. Regardless, there’s no need to stay locked inside as fall creeps up – adventure is waiting for you! These outdoor activities are perfect for all ages and abilities.

Outdoor hikes that are great for seniors

The area surrounding Puget Sound is one of the most picturesque landscapes in the country. Though many think of hiking these outdoor trails as a young man’s game, local developers have gone to great lengths to make these areas accessible to all. Many trails that are wheelchair accessible still display enough natural beauty to keep the whole family enthralled.

Tip: Don’t be put off by trails that are too long for you. Easy access to public trails means that you can make your trip as short or as long as you’d like.

Boat trips

If you’re not feeling ready for a big hike, get a nice dose of sun on one of the many boat tours that dot the area. Since many tour operators operate throughout the region, there is certain to be a nearby option that fits your interests and budget.

Outdoor movies

Many communities organize summer movie nights in public parks, and these events are perfect for all ages and interests. Since events in public areas are open to all, they’re likely to be family friendly, and many are free! Best of all, you’re much more likely to catch a great classic film at one of these events than at your local movie theater.

Senior-friendly summer fun (without leaving your backyard)

Do all of these events sound appealing, but you still find it difficult to organize an outing become of time constraints or limited mobility? With a little creativity, you can pull together a great summer event without leaving your own home. Even if your space is limited, you can take advantage of the summer with a simple event in your own backyard:

  • Picnics
  • Outdoor movies (with a projector or small TV)
  • Gardening
  • Camping with the grandchildren (feel free to go inside once the kiddos are asleep)
  • Garden parties
