    • Santa Maria has a thriving arts community. There are many opportunities for seniors and their families alike to take in art, theater, or concerts on a semi-regular basis.

    • Santa Maria has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Central Coast Commission for Senior Citizens, an organization that helps seniors in the San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties to be more active in their community while maintaining their independence.
