The Best Clayton Retirement Activities that Aren’t Golf!

So, you retired. Congratulations! This is an exciting new chapter in your life, and we’re so happy you’ve decided to consider spending your retirement in beautiful Clayton, NC.

Now that your days are a bit freer, you may have already started picking fun activities to fill them! We’d love to be of assistance to you, which is why we’re recommending these four retirement activities (that aren’t golf).

Why are we excluding golf, you may be wondering? Well, we’ve already written about it! It’s no secret that Clayton is a treasure trove of expertly landscaped golf courses. However, the fun activities we’re about to touch on are slightly less well known.

Fishing at a Nearby Lake

Another great fishing spot is at the brand new Turnipseed Nature Preserve. You can fish along the creek and beaver ponds to your hearts content.

Get Active and Fit

If you enjoy running, consider joining Clayton’s Running Group for adults. Make new running friends, and explore new restaurants, shops, and bars throughout the Clayton area after your run.
