Top Activities for Seniors in San Antonio

By Michelle Cemental

San Antonio is a beautiful city that is loaded to the brim with opportunities and experiences. People of all ages enjoy its splendor, and there's plenty to do for the San Antonio seniors as well. Here are 3 things seniors can do in San Antonio to build friendships, benefit overall well-being, and create moments of joy.

1. Join the Nearest Community Center

The city of San Antonio has 3 adult and senior centers, making it possible for seniors all over the city to join in on a variety of community programs. Seniors can join their peers in fun activities like arts and crafts, exercise and dance classes, computer classes, and field trips. A library and therapeutic pool are also available for seniors to use. Not only do these centers focus on the needs of seniors, but a community center can also become a place to socialize and make new friends.

2. Enjoy the River Walk

As one of the city's most prized possessions, the River Walk is one of the most visited attractions each year. Seniors can stroll leisurely down the wide walkways or take a relaxing boat ride to enjoy the scenery along the way. On either side of the River Walk, seniors can sit down for lunch, shop from local artisans, and enjoy some enthusiastic entertainment. And there are always opportunities for making new friends and learning or trying something new. No matter what you're into, there is something at the River Walk to keep you entertained for hours.

3. Be Creative

The Southwest School of Art is a high-quality, independent college that offers more than just degree programs for students. As a pillar of the San Antonio community, the school also provides exhibitions and educational programs to the community for kids and adults, as well as seniors. From sculpting to painting, printmaking, digital media, and more, seniors can learn an affordable (or free) art form from a talented professional. Using creativity is a great way for seniors to maintain mental sharpness, socialize, and express themselves. 

San Antonio can offer enjoyable, fulfilling experiences for any senior. If your senior isn't able to enjoy these activities without assistance, we can help! Contact our team today to learn more about our senior care services.
