Event Details

Athens consistently ranks as one of the top cities to retire, most recently by Forbes Magazine in April of 2016. One reason is because of the quality of life Athens has to offer older adults. Whether you have been here awhile or are new to the area the What's Next? Activities Expo provides an opportunity for you to learn about all there is to see and do in Athens and the surrounding community.  


There is no doubt that staying active is important during the second half of your life. It is not only good for our physical health, it is good for mental health too. Visit with vendors who will keep you young. Find out about local events happening this spring and summer in Athens. Learn about classes and courses offered around town. Consider volunteer opportunities with a variety of organizations. 


This popular event is an opportunity for active older adults to meet local businesses and organizations to learn about events and activities in our community. It is free and open to the public.
