Feeling bored and cooped up at home? Your county and city probably offer a variety of locally organized events and activities in a range of prices. The lovely spring weather and longer days offer more opportunities to get out and do something.
We recommend checking a few places to find as many options as possible. Check your county and city websites for local events. Parks and Recreation departments often have more information on outdoor events and free to low-cost sport leagues, arts and crafts classes, and even educational opportunities. Senior Centers frequently have their own event schedules, sometimes even open to all ages.
Not sure where to start? Try your county Parks and Recreation website:
Orange – www.ocparks.com/events
Riverside – www.rivcoparks.org/calendar
San Bernardino – parks.sbcounty.gov/events
Nowadays, almost every city and county offers a variety of valuable services and resources for individuals and families of all ages at little to no cost to local residents. From Meals on Wheels or exercise classes, to local libraries with computers for public use and movies available for checkout. Most jurisdictions also have parks, recreational facilities, or even classes for the entire community to enjoy.
Visit your city and county websites for detailed information on programs and services available locally, including referrals for specialized services such as mental health care, affordable housing and much more. We recommend checking your county’s official website first.
