7 Fun Hobbies for Retirees

Hobbies for Retirees

Retirees enjoy their hobbies to the tune of $57 a month, the most of any age group in the U.S., according to data from Bundle.com. College students only spent about $33 on extracurricular activities, while single men and women spend $49 and $31, respectively. In this current economic climate, it’s important to save, but affordability isn’t the only criteria retirees should consider when picking a hobby. According to Kate Lindemann, who runs the site Anti-Aging-articles.com, seniors should select an activity that keeps their body, spirit and mind engaged. “Just pick something,” Lindemann advises. “You don’t need to spend a lot of money right away. But if you try an activity and you find that you like it, you may find it’s worth it to keep going.” MainStreet rounds up cool hobbies to try. Photo Credit:  ddebold
