Over-Fifty Active Lifestyle Advice, Stories And Tips

Fiftysense.com is a website dedicated to assisting us Baby Boomers and beyond in finding the latest information on getting the most out of life for active seniors at any age. Our focus is in the fields of human powered Outdoor Activities and Adventure Travel, including Geo-caching, but we encourage people with experience in areas such as health, aging, humor, to share their advice and stories on any topic.

This is a site of Boomers, by Boomers and for Boomers. We want everyone to understand that it's never too late to try something new. We know you are not just senior citizens sitting on the front porch swing, but active seniors. Wait, are there even front porches anymore?

We welcome you to join our community on Facebook, fiftysense.com, and share your ideas and feelings about what you read here and your own experiences. We strongly encourage you to submit your stories, so "Email Us your fifty sense!".
