Atlanta is a city full of rich history and culture, and it offers much to do for seniors. Experiencing the city and enjoying activities Atlanta has to offer is a great way for seniors to pass the time and create new memories. But not all activities are suited for senior citizens. Here are some of our favorite activities in the Atlanta area.
World of Coca-Cola
Did you know that Coca-Cola was invented in Atlanta? To learn more about this classic soda, seniors can visit the World of Coca-Cola. The attraction features exhibits that showcase the history of Coca-Cola and fun memorabilia. The museum also has a room where seniors can try Coca-Cola products from around the world. (We should warn you that not all of them are what you would expect.)
High Muesum of Art
Museums are a great activity for seniors to enjoy because they are indoors — and summers in Atlanta can be very long and hot. The High Museum of Art in Atlanta is one of the leading art museums in the Southeast. Seniors can enjoy art exhibits at their own pace. The museum doesn’t have a senior discount, but they do have a very affordable membership program that seniors can take advantage of all year long.
Atlanta Botanical Gardens
Seniors who enjoy nature will appreciate the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. While this gorgeous garden can be hot in the summertime, there is plenty of shade provided by the trees. Throughout the gardens are sculptures, fountains, and other art installations to see. They also host live music and other events, so watch their calendar for events that your senior loved one might enjoy.
CNN’s world headquarters is in the heart of Atlanta, and it is open to the public to explore. Seniors can get exclusive, behind-the-scenes access to the studio. CNN Center offers tours of the facilities, and seniors can also explore exhibits about the news organization.
We hope that you and your aging loved one can enjoy these activities together. If you need assistance with these activities, reach out to our team today. We can help aging seniors remain safe whether they are at home or exploring Atlanta.
