Cool Things To Do at Southport

Why is Southport considered the best retirement community on Cape Cod? One of many reasons is the huge variety of activities and entertainment to enjoy in the community all year long. While there are plenty of people who love the warm weather of summer, there are times when you need to cool off. Fortunately, there are plenty of indoor amenities at Southport that can be enjoyed in air-conditioned comfort.

If you want to remain active, but it’s too warm outside for a game of tennis or a round of golf, Southport offers an outstanding fitness center with plenty of machines, weights, and classes for every activity level. You can really cool off by taking advantage of the indoor and outdoor swimming pools.

For those who like to explore the world of arts and crafts there are a variety of classes available, as well as workspaces where you can do your own projects, from watercolors to woodworking. Those interested in sewing should meet up with the Quilters Club. Whether you’re a novice sewer or have years of experience, everyone is welcome.

If cards and games are more your style, you’ll find plenty of people ready to play bridge, rummy, poker or cribbage. If you’ve always wanted to learn, you’re sure to find someone who will teach you the basics, and if you’re looking for a real challenge, you’ll find some serious competitors.

Bibliophiles will want to take advantage of the books and the volunteer opportunities of the resident-run library. Those with a green thumb may find some useful books there, but they can also join the Garden Club to get tips on what to grow and how to arrange blooms, all in a fun, social setting.

From coffee klatches in the mornings to Friday social dinners, there’s something to do indoors and out of the heat all day long at Southport. Plus, you can get spa treatments, play billiards, and attend one of the many special themed parties, dances and celebrations held throughout the year in the grand ballroom. After just one summer at Southport, whether you enjoy the numerous outdoor activities or stay cool as a cucumber enjoying the indoor attractions, you’ll certainly agree it’s the best retirement community on Cape Cod.
