ActivitiesIf life is about making choices, then the “good life” is about having a spectrum of classes, clubs, entertainment and events to choose from – programming and activities that enrich the mind, body and spirit. The Colonnades residents enjoy participating in our ongoing clubs and activities, whether it’s a book club, playing cards, or current event discussions. The Colonnades team members host regular cultural and continuing education programs. Whether you love music, dance, art or science, there are always stimulating lectures and classes – opportunities to continue learning and experiencing new things. We also offer planned outings to area shopping, entertainment and artistic events, and historical and heritage attractions in surrounding areas including Washington D.C. and Richmond, VA.
