By Caring Senior Service

Whether you're interested in the arts, sports, making new friends, or learning something new, there's something in Omaha, Nebraska, for every senior. Take a look at the list you find below to see what activity you could get started on today.

1. Be Creative with Some Arts and Crafts

The city of Omaha maintains an assortment of senior centers, community centers, and programs. There are classes, clubs, and programs for arts, crafts, needlework, quilting, ceramics, and more. These classes are a great way to use the creative parts of your mind, socialize, and learn something new.

2. Get Moving and Take a Class

An older age doesn't mean you have to stop moving and in fact, exercise is just as important for seniors as it is for any other age group. Around the city, you can find classes that cater to seniors and also bring peers together in a safe place. Try your hand at Tai Chi, pickleball, or join the Get Fit program to build strength and endurance.

3. Enjoy the History of the City

Whether it's walking through the city's botanical gardens or enjoying one of many museums, Omaha holds culture and history at every turn. Museums, as well as local parks and gardens, are easy to walk for seniors and learning about the history of the city or about local artists is exciting and entertaining for anyone.

4. Join a Club

At the many community centers, you'll find more than classes. There are a variety of clubs around the city that provide a sense of family, purpose, and fun. One center's 55+ club meets twice a month, where they play games, socialize, and plan events.

5. Learn New Technology

Some seniors may think that it's impossible to learn something new at an older age, but Do Space is here to prove that idea wrong. They offer classes that teach children, adults, and seniors about technology, how to use it, and what they can do with it.
