The Vista offers everything you need to enjoy retirement, all in one beautiful, vibrant community. The convenience of The Vista’s premier amenities is never more evident than in the winter – residents stay warm and safe from snow, ice, and frigid temperatures because everything they need is right here at The Vista!
Take a Fitness Class
The Vista’s calendar of exercise classes and physical activities offers something for older adults of every ability level. Stay fit and active without braving the cold with Morning Moves, a 30-minute group exercise class that incorporates simple seated and standing movement, Chair Yoga and Chair-ercise, which help older adults with less mobility stay flexible and active, or Walking Group, which takes an organized 20-minute jaunt through the hallways when the weather is frightful.
Gather with Friends
What better way to spend a snow day than engaging in a game with friends? Residents of The Vista can choose from a diverse schedule of brain-stimulating games of strategy, such as bridge, mahjong, Rummikub, and canasta. There are also many social clubs to join, such as an engaging book club, or festive get-togethers to enjoy, such as the daily happy hour at The Vista’s cozy gathering place, The Windmill, where you can share a drink with friends by the warm, roaring fire.
“You can always do something here,” said Joyce Christie, a resident at The Vista. “You never have to be lonely – you can always keep busy. I can’t say enough positive things about it.”
Enjoy Live Entertainment
One of The Vista’s most impressive features is the Performing Arts Center, where residents can attend numerous performances and events, including various lectures and presentations, live music and comedy acts, magic shows, and movie screenings. Residents can also enjoy interactive virtual travel events, where they will join a tour guide to explore exotic destinations around the world and hear interesting facts without having to leave the comfort of a beautiful theater.
“The programs are excellent,” said Vista resident Elaine Goodman. “They’re academic, fun, and musical. My only complaint is I can’t do it all!”
Take a Winter Swim
You may not think of swimming as a winter activity, but at The Vista, you can enjoy a dip no matter what the weather is like outside. The beautiful Reach Aquatics Center features a luxurious heated indoor pool for swimming all year-round. Take a solo swim, join an organized group swim, or sign up for Aqua-cize, a gentle, body-weight-supported strength and conditioning class.
Don’t let the winter blues stall your creativity. The Vista has plenty of options for the artistic soul to be expressive during the long, dreary winter months. Arts and crafts, knitting, paint-and-sip events, and even improv classes are offered at the vibrant community.
Park in Comfort
Who wants to dig out and clean off their car after a big snowstorm? Vista residents enjoy a space in a covered, climate-controlled parking garage for their vehicle. Say goodbye to scraping ice from windshields or shivering as you wait for your car to heat up!
Dine in Style
At The Vista, you don’t have to leave the community to indulge in a delicious meal. Two on-site restaurants offer diverse options, from fine dining to comfort classics. Gallery Bistro serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a homey, social dining room, while the Waterstone is the place to go for an elegant dinner. Vista residents can enjoy winter staples like hearty soups or fresh-baked pastries without ever having to step outside!
