What better way for seniors to stay active in the community than to enjoy seasonal activities? Plano home care providers recommend the following four activities for seniors to make the most of the fall season.
1. Hike at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve
Seniors can admire the change in colors outdoors during the fall season by taking a hike at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve. Visitors can take a number of different trails before stopping at a quaint pavilion where they can have a picnic mid-day. Several lookout stops are also available, which makes for many great photo opportunities. All of the paths are paved, which makes it easy to bike or go for a light jog while spotting bobcats and rabbits along the way.
2. Attend a Haunted Performance
Seniors who enjoy the spooky atmosphere that comes with the Halloween season can see a live show at the Dark Hour Haunted House, which features Wreck the Halls carolers and creepy characters that hit the stage. The sets are detailed and the costumes are dramatic in a haunted house that is set in a creepy warehouse building.
3. Participate in a Marathon
The Haunt Jaunt Night 5k and Fun Run is a Halloween-themed race that welcomes participants of all ages to dress up in their best costumes while running on the track. The race will take runners through the nature preserve on a paved running service that makes it a more comfortable experience for seniors who want to stay active during the fall season.
4. Visit the State Fair
The State Fair of Texas continues its annual tradition with a nightly parade, authentic Texan food, and daily shows throughout the month of October. Seniors can enjoy a day of entertainment and attend the largest auto show in the Southwest at the fair. It makes for a great excuse to try seasonal foods and see live bands perform on the Chevy Main Stage. A bake-off will also be hosted with prizes awarded to those who create the tastiest treats of the season.
