Activities for Seniors in San Francisco

Cultural Arts - Pay a visit to the oldest known Chinese Buddha, a gilded bronze image dated 338 at the Asian Art Museum. Marvel at the impressive collection of Asian art, including ceramics, textiles, and paintings that trace more than 6,000 years of history. The Randall Museum offers an opportunity to explore the art, science, and environment of the Bay Area.

Parks - The city's beautiful public trails and temperate weather makes it easy for seniors to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Take a stroll or bike across the iconic 1.7-mile Golden Gate Bridge and indulge in a casual, healthy snack at the Round House Café. Walk with friends through the green spaces of Presidio and Dolores Park as you enjoy the scenic views of the area.

Entertainment - Seniors can grab a bite at Pier 39. Located on the city's beautiful waterfront, the location offers many options for catching live music or eating some fantastic seafood, all set to the scenery of San Francisco Bay. You can find hundreds of lively sea lions on the marina's western docks for a fulfilling day.

Volunteer Opportunities - For seniors who would love to celebrate the community, participate in group volunteering activities and community art projects like the 16th Avenue tiled steps in the Sunset.
