From Learning in Retirement to golfing in the sunshine:
Davidson, NC is perfect for energetic people with lively curiosity.
“We have more available than we can do!”
- From a recent Resident Satisfaction Survey
The Shia-Sunni Controversy… Shakespearean Resurrection… The First Three Minutes of the Universe… China’s Rise… Genomics and You… Are Broken Brains Doomed to Dysfunction?… If you want to appreciate the phrase “the vibrancy of a college community,” join a packed house of residents for our Learning in Retirement program. Davidson College professors come to The Pines to share their insights on fascinating topics like these.
The dining room empties out early on nights when the Davidson College basketball team hits the paint. Residents love to root for the home team. But you’re just as likely to find them on an excursion to the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden or the Highland Games at Rural Hill.
They also enjoy a generous discount on privileges at the prestigious River Run Country Club, for golf, tennis and fine dining. And if you like to read, you’re in the right place. Davidson is the unofficial book club capital of North Carolina, with 30 groups meeting at The Pines alone.
The activities calendar offers resources and instruction to satisfy every curiosity, whether it’s building gingerbread houses, expressing yourself in watercolors or ceramics, or woodworking. But there are just as many events and activities off the calendar—bridge and poker games, chess clubs, garden groups and more—organized by residents themselves. Join us and you’re sure to get a warm welcome.
“The welcome of the residents and staff go well beyond any expectations you might have coming to a new place. Plus, there is so much available in activities geared to all levels. You are free to choose what you can do and what you like in activities.” – a resident of The Pines
