Bloomington has become a retirement hot spot. As a vibrant community with a world-class university, the opportunities for creative engagement, civic participation, and encore careers are broad and deep. As one of five national Community AGEnda sites, funded by the Grantmakers in Aging, Bloomington is on track to create the country's first "lifetime community district" along the downtown multi-use trail, called the B-Line. Collaboration among government, private, and civic sectors is bringing forward new options in housing, health and wellness, cultural, and social life.
The Bloomington Retirement Guide describes this emerging vision. We invite you to join us in this adventure. The Visit Bloomington staff can connect you with local information resources about housing, healthcare, lifelong learning, volunteerism, encore careers, and quality of life.
