MORE FUN IDEAS IN
Still searching for things to do once you retire? Here are a
few more ideas to pick up the hobby you always wanted to
try, or be part of a great group of people.
Start a book club.
Sharing your love of literature with friends is always fun!
Stir your creativity.
Write that book or paint that canvas you've dreamed about for years
and kept putting off.
Whether your passion is animals, children, art or something else,
organizations are always grateful for your time.
This one's obvious, but there's never been a better time than retirement
to explore parts of the state, country or world you've always wanted
Whether you're a novice or experienced, why not try yoga, swimming
or another program that keeps you moving?

Learn a new skill.
It doesn't have to be technology-based (perhaps it's a cooking class,
woodworking or a musical instrument), but your brain will appreciate
the different approach.
Spend more time with friends.
Head to the movies, enjoy an afternoon at the coffee shop together,
or take up a class together.
Go back to school.
Age is just a number - sit in on a college course, get that Master's or
Ph.D, or work with a scholar on a particular topic you love.
Maybe you've always wanted to start a small business. There's no time
like the present!
10. Schedule regular dates with the grandkids.
You'll both gain lifelong memories and cherish the time together.
