As a popular destination for many recent retirees, Greater Philadelphia provides new and exciting ways to enjoy life to the fullest. Some senior newcomers select slower-paced suburban communities, with easy access to superior golf courses, shopping malls and outdoor attractions. Others head for the hustle and bustle of Center City Philadelphia. Both the suburbs and the city offer an array of theaters, music halls, sports arenas, fine restaurants, art galleries and entertainment venues.
Philadelphia's Center in the Park (www.centerinthepark.org) boasts one of the strongest arts program for seniors in the United States. The Creative Arts and Aging Network (CANN) is a volunteer organization specializing in promoting life-enhancing opportunities for seniors. Visit www.creativeaging.org.
