We have spent the past 3 Winters in Arizona mainly at large RV Resort Parks like http://www.robertsresorts.com/pueblo_el_mirage_az/active_community/resort_activities_for_seniors.html in the Sun City, Arizona area and http://voyagerrv.com/artsandcrafts.html in SE Tucson. The activities available are listed on the links for the resorts. My wife loves all the activities they have and has been involved in scrap-booking, line dancing, Native American flute playing group, watching lawn bowling and a Mac Computer Class. There have also been weekly Farmer's Markets in the park and craft fairs
I am getting tired of Arizona and think I have overdosed on rocks, gravel, cactus, adobe, the color brown and wind. I would like to go back next year to the white sand beaches and emerald colored water of the Gulf Coast in Florida. In looking for RV Resort Parks there I have not been able to find any with near the activities that are offered in Arizona parks.
Does anyone know of RV Parks in Florida which have similar activities.
The rage here is Pickle Ball and Boccie Ball.
is in the panhandle. Some cold days but usually warms up quickly.
not sure if they have as many activities as Arizona but looks like a nice friendly park with enough to keep DW busy. Sometimes there are rec centers nearby with scrapbooking and other things. Ask the park office.

If you're looking for lots of activities, I'd suggest Sun N' Fun at X-210 off I-75 in Sarasota. Download the Lifestyle menu from their home page. Lots of things to do there, and you're only about 10 miles from Siesta Key. Beautiful white sand beaches.

Retired and visiting as much of this beautiful country as I can.
Emerald Beach in Navarre is really nice but sites are hard to get. It has its own beach and is a mile from the most pristine beaches on Santa Rosa Sound I have ever seen. We are going back April 2 for a week with our grandson. Golf close by but not much for the older set. Destin is a short drive east with a lot of interesting things to do/see.
If you are willing to try the Atlantic coast, check out The Great Outdoors at Titusville. It has all the activities you mentioned, and then some. This past fall they converted two tennis courts for Pickleball, and it has really taken off there. It is close to shopping and about 10 miles to the Cape Canaveral National Seashore. It is also close to the Kennedy Space Center. Although there are no more space shuttle launches, you can occasionally catch a satellite launch from your camp site.

Thanks for the suggestions. I will check them out. I broke 4 ribs last Wed and the Dr. says I won't be driving anywhere for at least 6 weeks. Sounds like ribs are a slow heal. At least the desert plants are starting to bloom, but it is getting hot.
