Orlando FL Senior Living
To say that Orlando is a great place to retire is stating the obvious. It’s the home of famous attractions like Disney World and Universal Orlando and so much more that offer senior-friendly activities day and night. But it’s the less-known activities that make Orlando a truly great place for seniors.
A trove of art, culture and history abound in the city that is often only recognized for the thrill of a giant roller coaster and enormous whales that do tricks for fish. The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, the Art & History Museums – Maitland and City Arts Factory are just a few of the artistic attractions in Orlando.
If history is more appealing, you have plenty of past experiences to relive at Orlando’s numerous museums. The Orange County Regional History Center, which opened in 1942, has three floors of permanent exhibits and is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institute. The Winter Park History Museum and the Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Gardens also offer a history-rich experience for seniors in Orlando.
But Orlando senior living also offers an array of outdoor activities that are perfect for seniors. The Orlando Wetlands Park takes bird watching, nature photography and quiet walks to a whole new level with more than 1,650 acres of hardwood hammocks, marshes and lakes. If you’re closer to downtown Florida, you’ll want to take a stroll through Harry P. Leu Gardens, which has more than 50 acres of gardens with winding pathways that meander through 40 different plant collections.
As if that wasn’t enough for any senior to enjoy, Orlando is as much a local entertainment mecca as it is a world-renowned entertainment hotspot. Some of the local entertainment attractions seniors can’t get enough of are the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orlando Ballet and the Winter Park Playhouse.
With something for every senior, whether you’re looking for glitz and glam or local and earthy, Orlando is a great place to retire. And Holiday Retirement has the senior living home to meet your needs.
