It’s important for seniors to stay active not only inside the home, but within their communities as well. Sacramento in-home care agencies recommend seniors partake in local activities to stimulate physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. Following are a few activities Sacramento, CA, seniors can enjoy all year round.
Tour the California Automobile Museum
Learn about the rich history of automobiles with a stop at this museum, which has an impressive collection of cars that are on display to the public. Seniors can view a host of antique automobiles while learning about their conception. From a handful of retro DeLoreans to sleek muscle cars, there’s something for everyone at the automobile museum.
Attend a Play
Enjoy the theatrical arts at B Street Theatre where seniors frequent the location to see actors perform live in a theater that seats 150 people. It’s practically impossible to purchase a ticket for a bad seat in the house. Visitors can even enjoy alcoholic beverages and snacks during the intermission at the concessions stands.
Walk the Sacramento Historic City Cemetery
As the oldest cemetery in the city, this location is a must-see attraction for seniors who are interested in strolling through a beautiful and historic (if not slightly spooky) location. Seniors can stop by in the spring when the roses and native plants are in full bloom while looking for noteworthy graves that have been present since 1849. It’s also the perfect place to visit in the fall if your loved one enjoys spooky stories.
Explore Old Sacramento State Historic Park
Seniors can view original architecture and learn about the rich history of the city by exploring this historic state park where restaurants and shops abound. It makes for a quaint location to stop by with friends and enjoy walking around, viewing the wrought iron balconies and admiring decorative arched doorways on the various buildings that have been newly renovated.
Swim at Folsom Lake
Folsom Lake is a hot spot for recreational activities when seniors want to spend time outdoors and stay physically active. Picnic areas are available to those who like to barbecue in the fall, or guests can take to the swim beaches where they can cool off from the spring or summer heat. Ninety-four miles of trailheads are also available to walk, bike, or ride horses.
