Reaching retirement brings many benefits, one of which is having more time to relax and explore.

From water aerobics classes to wine tasting, many opportunities exist in Kansas City for senior citizens to expand their horizons. Keep reading for five fun activities geared toward KC retirees:

1. Kansas City Parks and Recreation Senior Programs

For those above the age of 60, KC Parks and Rec provides numerous events and classes aimed at seniors. Most of the 21 activities listed are either free or under $5, and range from various exercise classes to social meet-ups. To sign up for Senior Social Club, please call your preferred community center, on their website here.

2. Senior Discount at the K

Those 65 and older have the opportunity to purchase Kansas City Royals tickets at half-price. The discounted tickets are available at the box office only and at most home games (excluding Opening day and Marquee game dates) for five different seating sections. Also only available at the box office, there are Military Discounts. Active-duty or former military can purchase up to 4 tickets per game at half-price.

3. Nelson-Atkins Art Museum

A staple of the area’s attractions, the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum is free to people of all ages. In addition to many world-class art exhibits, the museum holds a variety of festivals each year. Visit their Calendar to find upcoming events, but you can always browse the beautiful galleries.

4. Kansas City Ballet Senior Discount

Like Kauffman Stadium, the KC Ballet offers discounted tickets to many performances. People 62 and older have the opportunity to buy “rush” tickets at a 30% discount for any of three sections. Some of their upcoming performances include “Romeo and Juliet” as well as “The Nutcracker”.

Initiated by Barber Financial Group, the Art Tasting Club provides retirees with opportunities to explore many new passions. Members will be provided with a chance to explore the world of film, fine dining, and wine tasting all while seeing the best of what Kansas City has to offer.
