How do I meet people in the United States?
When we asked people living in the United States about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded:
"Most restaurants have midweek activities (trivia night etc.) Downtown has many parades an regular events called Jump Up. Triathlon Federation is great for athletes, as is the Humane Society for pet lovers,"
remarked another retiree in Christiansted.
"One can volunteer at the hospital in nearby Randolph or help out with the local dog rescue group, a library volunteer and volunteer as a church member which there are many,"
said a retiree who moved to Braintree, United States.
"Attending a church is a good way to meet people. Canoe clubs are popular, as are the local CrossFit gyms. Diving is big. The local school systems need volunteers, so this would be a way to meet and help people,"
said another retiree in Saipan.
"Church groups, Choirs, Volunteer organizations, Bars, cafes, library.
So many options to choose,"
commented one retiree living in Brooklyn, US.
"Being retired it is a little harder to meet people now, especially because we spend winters in Costa Rica. However there is a wonderful garden club in Wasilla that meets once a month. Sutton is very small and rural. The air is fresh, the summers are warmer than Anchorage (60 miles SW of us) and the winters are 10 degrees colder. There are about 500 people in the Sutton area. Over the years I have thanked my lucky stars many times for this beautiful place. If you are political in nature, Alaska is a place where you can make a difference,"
explained one retiree living in Sutton .
"I would recommend the bars and clubs here in Sacramento. They are mostly located in the downtown area. Some good clubs to visit are Blue Q and Empire. For bars we have plenty of them, some good ones are Sandbar,Pine Cove,Firehouse,Players,for the youngfolks that attend Sac State Univ. you can check out the Library, and you can also go down to the river Old Sacramento area for the riverside dining bars that are available.
If you are into music we have a growing underground music community in hip-hop and rock. Finding out about shows is easy mainly because you can flyers for shows posted in every coffee shop and street corner. A good venue for music to check out is the Boardwalk.
If clubbing and music isn't your thing we have 2 rivers and a lake within the Sacramento area. One can do everything from boating,swimming,fishing,mountain biking to jogging. There are plenty of outdoor activities to do,"
said another retiree in living in Sacramento, US.
