KEEPING MIND, BODY AND SOUL ACTIVE AND HEALTHY

The City of Alexandria, Arlington County and Fairfax County all have well-developed recreation and social programs for seniors that provide a rich array of classes, trips, lectures and fitness offerings. Non-residents can sometimes pay an additional fee to access activities that are outside their jurisdiction. For more information, visit:
