Do you live in Northwest DC? Are you looking for enjoyable and interesting programs or activities? You’ve come to the right place.

There are a number of programs and events throughout Northwest DC that bring older adults together to build friendships, learn new skills, enjoy conversation, exercise, and have fun.

News to you? You’re not alone.

Over the years, we’ve heard from countless neighbors like you who say they missed out on fitness opportunities, art programs, educational presentations, social events, and more because they simply didn’t know about them.

If you’re 60+ and looking for ways to tap into your neighborhood resources, meet new people, stay fit, or enjoy other recreational and wellness programs, it can be difficult to know what’s available to you. You have to wade through flyers, emails, websites, listservs, community boards, resource guides, brochures, and more—which often takes time, patience, and online savvy. As a result, you might grow frustrated, give up, and ultimately never learn about a great event, activity, or program.
