Activities for Seniors in Vancouver

Vancouver is a thriving city full of attractions and activities for seniors to enjoy.

Museums and historic places - If you like taking group or bus trips, you will enjoy exploring the buildings and sights that once held the 2010 Winter Olympic games. Art lovers will enjoy a trip to the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Exercise and sport activities - Many local senior centers or community education programs have classes available to help seniors stay active and on the move. If playing sports is your thing, then perhaps a soccer team is right for you. If you enjoy something a little less strenuous, then perhaps yoga or dance classes are right for you. A variety of fitness classes, including strength training, is available to focus on balance and agility.

Games and crafts - Creative seniors and craft lovers will enjoy the opportunity to write a story or poem with a writing group, or knit a blanket or design a beautiful oil painting. However, if arts and crafts are not your thing, there is always card games or board games. Catch up with a group of friends while playing Bridge or even a game of Monopoly.

Sports - If you enjoy spending a few hours with other sports fans taking in a game, with some pretzels or nachos, there is always the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League.
