The leaves are falling, the air is turning crisp, and there are wafts of baking and cinnamon in the air. It’s autumn! Whether you are sad the summer is behind us, or excited for what the colder months hold, autumn in BC holds so many wonderful opportunities. Here are size fall activities seniors living at Pacific Carlton in White Rock, BC can do to make the most of this beautiful season.

  1. Visit a Museum or Art Gallery

There is something captivating about being indoors and looking at beautiful art or learning about history. If you are into history, we recommend visiting the Museum of Surrey, the Historic Steward Farm, the Canadian Museum of Flight, the White Rock Museum & Archives, the Fraser Valley Heritage Rail, or the B.C. Vintage Truck Museum. If you are an art lover, you can visit the Mind & Matter Gallery, the Michael Bjorge Fine Art Photography Gallery, the White Rock Gallery, the Surrey Art Gallery, West Coast Curated, or Michael Bjorge Fine Art.  

  1. Go For a Walk and Enjoy the Changing Trees

British Columbia is absolutely breathtaking in autumn. There are so many wonderful places you can walk near Pacific Carlton Seniors Community. Our beloved White Rock boardwalk is lined with beautiful orange, yellow, and red trees, providing the perfect afternoon walk on a nice day. We encourage you to be mindful of not going outside if it is poor weather to decrease the chance of catching an illness or slipping and falling.

  1. Attend a Social Event at Pacific Carlton

Our retirement community is proud to provide many social events our residents can attend! Each month we host a variety of events, including themed dinners, happy hours, exercise classes, live music nights, and games nights! There is sure to be an event for every resident to enjoy.

  1. Sit in the Garden and Enjoy a Warm Beverage

Pacific Carlton retirement living has beautiful, lush gardens, that still look spectacular as the seasons change! On a mild autumn day, we encourage you to grab a hot beverage from the cafe, wear warm clothes (and a blanket if you’d like), and sit outside, enjoying the crisp air and sounds of autumn. Sitting in nature can be very therapeutic, healing, and enjoyable. Please be aware that sitting outside while it is too cold or raining can increase the risk of getting sick, and isn’t recommended. Please also ensure you dress appropriately and stay warm while enjoying the brisk fall weather.

  1. Bake Something Nostalgic

When we think of autumn, we think of changing leaves, cozy sweaters, cinnamon, pumpkins, and apple spice! Is there a smell or taste that makes you think of autumn? Now is the perfect time to use the beautiful kitchen in your suite at Pacific Carlton to cook or bake something that brings back happy memories! We can’t wait to walk past your suite and smell the wonderful aromas.
