From fun to relaxing to physically exerting, Phoenix has no shortage of year-round activities for seniors.

The best part is that many of these senior-friendly activities are free. Those programs that aren’t free usually offer senior discounts and promos. If you’re looking for fun activities and exciting places that can enhance senior living in Phoenix, we’ve come up with this list to get you started.

1. Play Bingo

A classic senior activity, Bingo allows participants to socialize, pass time, and join in some harmless, low-stakes gambling. Luckily, Phoenix is home to several bingo halls that also serve as social hubs for senior communities.

With Bingo, seniors can play games without exerting too much effort and can stimulate their minds while having fun. To build a routine, seniors can meet up once a week for Bingo night to give them a weekly night out for fun and socialization.

2. Take a leisurely walk at the Desert Botanical Garden

For easy exercise, taking a walk at the Desert Botanical Garden is a great way for seniors to move around while enjoying the beautiful scenery.

A well-known destination in Phoenix, the Desert Botanical Garden also features different musical events and workshops that seniors can enjoy. They also offer discounts to seniors for general-admission tickets.

3. Play golf


Just because your loved one is a senior already doesn’t mean he or she needs to stay indoors all the time. They can still play sports like golf — a favorite among many seniors.

It's a good thing that Phoenix is a known destination for golfers with over 200 golf courses in the city and surrounding areas. Many golf courses in Phoenix also offer discounts and cheaper packages for seniors.

4. Tour the Phoenix Art Museum

Home to a number of historic and contemporary art pieces, the Phoenix Art Museum offers seniors discounts to see pieces by Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and other notable artists.

Seniors visiting the museum can be assured that they will be accommodated warmly since the Phoenix Art Museum prides itself as an accessible museum not just to the elderly but also to individuals who have mobility problems, and have vision and hearing problems.

5. Visit the Civic Space Park

Many seniors love to take a walk in the park but the hot weather can sometimes be discouraging. At the Civic Space Park, seniors don’t have to worry about the heat of the sun since the majority of the park is shaded.

The features of Civic Space Park are also elderly-friendly with ample sitting spaces and walking trails for seniors to enjoy.

6. Attend the Opera

Many seniors enjoy watching live performances and luckily, the Arizona Opera offers discounts to seniors on most performances.

Seniors can enjoy themselves with classic performances, shows, and recital series.

7. See the Heard Museum

Another museum that offers discounts for seniors is the Heard Museum which features different pieces on the advancement of American Indian art.

At the Heard Museum, seniors can enjoy different exhibitions that showcase traditional and contemporary art.
