3 Activities for Seniors to Enjoy This Summer in Midtown Phoenix

Living in Phoenix, Arizona, comes with many perks, especially for seniors.  A lower cost of living, beautiful weather year-round, stunning landscapes, and a wide variety of both indoor and outdoor activities make Phoenix an ideal destination for many.

For seniors interested in assisted living in midtown Phoenix, BridgeWater’s Assisted Living Midtown community offers outstanding amenities, including an onsite movie theater, hair salon, well-equipped wellness center, chef-prepared meals, and scheduled activities.

BridgeWater Assisted Living’s Midtown campus is just a short distance away from Midtown Phoenix and the Light Rail, restaurants, shopping, sports, museums, theaters, churches, and healthcare services. Transportation services are available for residents who want to enjoy everything that midtown Phoenix has to offer but don’t want to drive themselves.

Looking for ideas for summertime activities in Phoenix? Here are three activities that seniors can enjoy this summer in midtown Phoenix:

1. Soak in the Natural Beauty of Phoenix

Known as the “Valley of the Sun,” Phoenix experiences an average of 300 days of sunshine a year with only around eight inches of rain. You can take advantage of all those sunny days by visiting the Desert Botanical Garden, which is home to more than 50,000 plant displays on 140 acres of stunning desert landscape. Aside from admiring the unique beauty of the desert, you can also participate in classes at the garden to learn new skills in photography, cooking, art, gardening, and crafting.

If tranquility is what you’re looking for, try the Japanese Friendship Garden, located in the heart of downtown Phoenix. This garden provides a serene outdoor space full of natural beauty but they also hold cultural events and workshops like “Aikido in the Garden” and a “Moon Meditation Workshop”.

2. Support Local Farmers and Artisans

Every Saturday morning year-round, the Downtown Phoenix Farmers Market brings together a wide range of local vendors to sell their goods to the public. Stroll through the booths and enjoy some homemade bread and honey while supporting local businesses. Vendor types include:

  • Food – local, farm-fresh produce, baked goods, prepared foods, ready-to-eat meals, honey, food trucks
  • Artisan – handmade jewelry, pottery, clothing, photography
  • Body Care – body soaps, aromatherapy
  • Household Products – cleaning products, soaps

No matter what you’re looking for, there’s something for everyone at this farmers market.
