For many of the same reasons senior citizens choose to live on the Kenai Peninsula, many seniors will visit it mild temperatures and easy access to wildlife, fishing, hiking and beautiful views.
Traveling seniors are invited to visit any of the seven senior citizens centers on the peninsula.
The centers offer a variety of daily activities, such as art, music, dancing, painting, cards, board games, movie nights, blood pressure checks, yoga, Bible study, sing-alongs and much more. In addition to daily activities, many of the centers have planned special summer events and visitors are encouraged to call the centers to see what is coming up.
Each of the centers also offer low-cost daily lunch menus. Many centers ask that lunch reservations be made 24 hours in advance.
