There, you will find 50+ Enrichment Activities, where you can take a course from an Ivy League School. You can also learn a new language, read the Harvard Classics or listen to a TED Talk. Maybe explore Texas history, visit the Texas Capital or even visit the CIA’s Freedom of Information Act Electronic Reading Room from home.

As we wait to get back to our regular exercise routines, there are many different ways to stay physically active from home. Visit our 50+ Exercise Activities and try Chair Yoga, Zumba, or a 10-minute stretch and energize workout from AARP. You can work on your balance, try Tai Chi or Chair Chi from Senior Planet. Whatever your fitness level, we have an exercise for you to do right at home.

Since we can’t take you on any Travel Group Trips, we are bringing Travel Trips to you. Visit our new 50+ Virtual Recreation page and click on Virtual Tours. You can choose from over 70 places to explore. Go on an African Safari. Tour Big Bend National Park. Visit the Great Wall of China, Stonehenge, Yellowstone National park or even tour the surface of Mars right on your computer.

Another very popular virtual activity is viewing Webcams from Around the World. Look in on an African watering hole where you can watch hippos drift in the water, elephants come down to drink, and giraffes picking their way along the shore. See bald eagles up close and relaxed. Watch Old Faithful, America’s most famous geyser, erupt in a flurry of steam and water. Watch live feeds of penguins, sharks, jellyfish, and aquarium exhibits. You can even go gorilla trekking with this safari live feed.

We also have another page loaded with great 50+ Online Activities for you to enjoy. Here you will find dozens of free games, word searches and crossword puzzles. You can even play Wheel of Fortune. You can learn floral arranging, calligraphy or scrap booking. Visit Howcast and learn how to belly dance, perform magic tricks or juggle. All of this and much, much, more are just a few clicks away at our new 50+ Virtual Recreation Page.
