Summer Activities For Seniors

With Memorial Day behind us and the warm days stretching out ahead, it’s time to finally enjoy the summer. There are countless ways to spend time in the great outdoors, and many options for cooling off inside when the afternoon heat gets too hot. Here are some ways to enjoy the warm weather, and stay safe while you do it. 

Start Early To Beat the Heat

As the day progresses, temperatures have a tendency to only rise. Enjoy the most of your time outside by planning activities in the morning, before the heat of the day, or in the evening, once it has cooled off some. Westminster Village is centrally located in West Lafayette, IN, with easy access to beautiful parks and miles of walking and biking trails. If you do find yourself out in the afternoon, pick areas and walking paths with tree cover, and remember to bring your hat, water bottle, and sunscreen. 

Maximize the Fun With Friends

Some of the best memories of summer are long days filled with loved ones and friends. Pack a picnic to enjoy in one of Westminster Village’s many greenspaces, take to the courts for pickleball or croquet, or enjoy a few rounds on the putting green. For more fun off-campus, head to downtown Lafayette and West Lafayette for shopping, dining, parks, and more.

Cool Off In the Water

One of the most tried and true methods to beat the summer heat is to take a dip in the pool. Westminster Village’s Live Well Center features both a lap/aerobics pool and a warm-water therapy pool. Want to spend time with the kids or grandkids? Enjoy open swim times for families and cool off in the water together. Locker rooms, private showers, and swimsuit dryers are all available on-site. 

Take the Fun Inside

Sometimes the sun is just too hot, or a rainy day washes out your plans. Thankfully, there’s still fun to be had indoors. Enjoy one of Westminster Village’s many art classes, fitness groups, or brain boot camps. Head downtown to enjoy art galleries, restaurants, shows, and more!
