Charlotte Senior Resources
This is a bit of a list of lists, but many of these websites have done a fantastic job of outlining important resources for seniors in Charlotte, NC.

We are incredibly lucky in Charlotte to have so many vibrant outreach programs for our most valued citizens, the ones who have built this city and continue to grace it with their wisdom and experience.

I am happy to see there are tons of senior meetup groups active in Charlotte! I first joined Meetup.com when I moved to California and didn’t know a soul! I started my own group in Davis, CA, The WinoBeeroFoodos. People joined the group online, and we met in person and had a blast exploring wine country, going to movies, out to dinner and more! Yes, you meet random people from the internet, but this is much more mainstream than it sounds and you are meeting whole groups of people in public places. You can find all kinds of groups with common interests and make new friends!
The BBBgrapevine.org is THE go-to for any senior looking for activities around town, and I’ve found that the people whose businesses work with seniors also use it extensively as well to coordinate fundraisers, networking events and grand openings.
If you are competitive, then the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Senior Games might be for you! The 2016 games will get going in the spring so keep an eye out for news.
