Indianapolis assisted living facilityIndianapolis has been getting great press in recent years for its strong economy and booming cultural offerings. It’s no wonder that it’s popular with retirees, who are increasingly looking for a more urban experience, as well as to return to the kind of college towns they enjoyed before beginning their careers.

With lectures to enjoy, arts programing, sports events, diverse age ranges, and a low cost of living, there’s a lot to love about this trend.

There's wonderful access to continuing learning, such as auditing college and graduate courses, opportunities for some to even contribute to some subjects in terms of teaching as a guest speaker, great opportunities for volunteering, lots of access to the arts, and a chance to mingle with people of all ages," says Andrew Blechman, author of Leisureville: Adventures in America's Retirement Utopias.

Indiana University-Purdue Universityoffers a wonderful continuing education program with special deals for retirees, in a variety of topics including sketchbook drawing, blues harmonica, Italian, Spanish, ballroom dance, golf, t’ai chi, salsa, belly dance, Gaelic language, and photography. In addition to continuing education programs like these, retirees can also audit classes or even pursue a degree as a fully-enrolled non-traditional student at most colleges and universities.

The University of Indianapolis has a lot to offer sports fans, with 21 NCAA Division II teams. Best of all, tickets to Hounds events are very inexpensive, typically $5-8 dollars for  football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, softball, baseball, wrestling, swimming, and track. In any season there are fun rivalries and fin performances to catch.

For those interested in the arts, Indiana University-Purdue University has many fine exhibitions by contemporary artists, including William Crutchfield, Maep Kristinia Estell and Allen Brewer. Theater fans will delight in the amazing productions by Hoosier Bard, “a unique theatre company linking the New Oxford Shakespeare editors, the Indianapolis performing arts community, and students and faculty at IUPUI.” They recently made a splash with a production of an uncensored original version of Measure for Measure and a different take on Hamlet based on a rare 1603 version of the play that they called Young Hamlet.

Indianapolis’s strong university culture isn’t a plus just for college students; it’s a huge asset to the community, and highly attractive to retirees who aren’t ready to slow down!

    Lo recomendable es que una empresa de reparacion electrodomesticos le revise los electrodomésticos al menos una vez al año preferiblemente antes de la temporada de más uso del electrodoméstico en cuestión. Existen numerosas empresas de reparacion electrodomesticos Madrid , para elegir la más adecuada debe buscar una que este lo más cerca posible de usted para ahorrarse los costes del desplazamiento, visita y otros recargos por la distancia, y por supuesto que le garanticen su trabajo por escrito. Déjese asesorar por los profesionales y sus electrodomésticos le duraran mucho más, con un consumo menor y una eficacia mayor.
