At The Whitcomb there's plenty to do all year long, depending on your mood. Relax in the library; attend a seminar, public forum or lecture; enjoy our monthly book club; play cards or shuffleboard with friends, or compete in a variety of interactive and mind-stimulating games.

Want to rev things up a bit? Try an exercise class, work out in our fitness center, and more.

Just steps from everything, those who live at The Whitcomb are part of a thriving community that doesn't stop at the front door. Summer is an especially festive time in downtown St. Joseph and The Whitcomb's central location places it in the heart of the action that makes this bustling lakeside city so unique.

Front Row Seats! From the first summer "brown bag" concert in the John E.N. Howard band shell in June (right next door), to the spectacle of the Tri-State Regatta over Labor Day weekend, there's always plenty to see and do within a safe and easy walking distance. A free motorized "trolley" running daily throughout the summer is perfect for people who like to take life a little easier. Or just for fun, take a ride on a horse-drawn carriage - it's free, compliments of the city.

The annual outdoor Krasl Art Fair on the bluff and sunset symphonies performed at the Shadowland Pavilion at nearby Silver Beach round out the summer season's more cultural fare.  

Music! Music! Music! From professional musicians on piano and string to artists who sing and encourage others to join in, a medley of entertainment abounds at our Friday Social Hour. Meanwhile, our fun-loving "The Lunch Bunch" enjoys dining out once or twice a month at fine restaurants throughout the area. And there are many for us to choose from!

At The Whitcomb, independent living means choosing how to spend your time with so many options available. Choosing may be the hardest part.
