Our friends at Brittany Pointe in Pennsylvania came up with a great idea to mix walking with history! They developed a walking “tour” of Philadelphia complete with a map of historical sites in Philly and interesting trivia about each spot.
As the residents walk to various areas around the assisted living community, they stop and talk about the history associated with a different spot listed on the tour map. We’ve attached their walking tour and encourage you to try this in your community. For residents who enjoy history, but don’t always love to exercise, here’s the perfect activity that combines the two. You could even use pedometers to track steps too!
What other historical cities could your residents tour? Washington, DC, Boston, New York…the list goes on!
Have a great week and happy traveling!
