They are free to come and go as they please, and as much as they please. Do all the traveling you always wanted to do, or do the things you enjoy but never had the time to do before. Staying active helps you stay healthy.

  • Transportation services
  • 24 hour security

Activities for Seniors in San Diego

City Heights - Seniors with a passion for food and shopping will love exploring the City Heights area of San Diego. Featuring a high concentration of retail outlets, City Heights features blocks and blocks of streets where pedestrians will love to discover everything from Hispanic grocery stores to Mediterranean delis. Shoppers will love exploring the various clothing and accessories stores.

Pacific Beach - If boardwalks on the beach are your type of scene, you will love Pacific Beach. Once considered to be popular with the college population, rising property and rent costs has driven popularity to the older generation. From restaurants to clothing stores, seniors will enjoy taking in the scenery while strolling along the boardwalk.

Ocean Beach - This is the place for seniors who are into history and antiques. Once known for small, independent business, Ocean Beach is now the scene for antique shops. If you are looking for that rare antique piece, you will love exploring the Antique District. History buffs will love exploring the Strand Theatre, the oldest theater in the area.

Of course, if you are not into the retail shopping scene, there is always the numerous, but beautiful golf courses, or the plentiful arts, crafts, and music classes offered by your independent living community or area senior community centers.
