Staying Active in Your Community

People often choose where they want to settle down based on the community they’re joining. We all know it takes more than simply living somewhere to be an active member of your community. Being an active member of your community means giving back while also building a lifetime of friendships and making unforgettable memories.

Take Advantage of Community Amenities and Events

Here in Florida, we’re fortunate to have beautiful weather year-round. Weekend farmers markets, block parties with live music, holiday celebrations, and other events are offered community-wide throughout the state. That also means year-round access to community parks, trails, swimming pools, golf courses, and more. Step outdoors and take advantage of community amenities and events. Not only will this keep you active, it will open doors to socialize with others in your community.

Join a Fitness Group or Recreational Sports Team

Another way to stay active in your community is to participate in fitness activities. There are plenty of fitness groups and recreational sports teams to join for all age groups. Whether you are meeting friends at the club for lunch after a long day of golf or walking with a neighbor to go play pickle ball, staying fit is an amazing way to be healthy and build lasting friendships in your community!

Become a Volunteer

One of the ways you can stay active in your community and leave a lasting impact is to volunteer. Spending time volunteering at soup kitchens, hospitals, and donation stores are all great ways to give back. However, there are other creative ways to volunteer your time. Teaching an art class, leading a club, or working a community event are all additional examples of what volunteering can look like. Find what you’re passionate about and let it reflect in your community!
