Top Activities for Seniors in San Diego

By Michael Watson

San Diego, California, is a beautiful, diverse city with a lot to offer everyone, at any age. There are beautiful beaches, abundant restaurants and attractions such as Sea World. But what, specifically does the city have to offer seniors? A lot more than you'd think! 

Visit Balboa Park

At over 1,200 acres, Balboa Park is a mecca for locals and tourists alike. There are dozens of gardens, museums, restaurants and stores throughout the park, and the LA Zoo is located right on its grounds. The Casa Del Prado offers a Senior Lounge where people can enjoy a hot cup of coffee and socialize. They also offer activities such as needle crafts, art, cribbage or a walk around the park. Open 7 days per week from 9:30 to 3:30, it's a great place to spend a day!

Play Softball 

For more active seniors, there's the Senior Softball League. There are several leagues throughout San Diego, both competitive and recreational. The league does have a few revised rules to help prevent injury, so seniors don't have to worry if they aren't able to slide home. Teams play games anywhere from one to three times a week, so there's something for everyone's schedule.

Take a Class

Oasis is a non-profit organization that "promotes healthy aging through lifelong learning, active lifestyles and volunteer engagement." They offer everything from art classes to Zumba. They also have volunteer programs available.

Visit Hotel del Coronado

Visit the Hotel Del Coronado and stroll through its many boutiques and shops. This historic and famous hotel (where "Some Like It Hot" with Marilyn Monroe was filmed) also offers gorgeous views of the sunset over the ocean at several of its bars and restaurants. It's a great place to relax after a day of exploring.

Regardless of activity level or interests, San Diego has a lot to offer all seniors. Contact Caring Senior Service for more ideas and information on how our senior services can help your loved one enjoy all that San Diego has to offer.
