Novel Excursions

Adventure Awaits With Off-Site Excursions
We host fun outings for residents that offer new experiences, encourage moments of personal growth, and ignite new passions, instilling a sense of purpose in their lives.
Our frequent off-site excursions reflect the unique community spirit at Willowbend, offering a combination of new and exhilarating or familiar and relaxing options for everyone. Whether it’s having brunch at a local restaurant or taking a day trip for retail therapy in Memphis, all residents and their family members are encouraged to join in the fun.

Our residents love to indulge in a little bit of fun at the casino, so trips to Southland Gaming and Racing Track are common. Residents look forward to playing the slot machines, enjoying a game of cards and dining with friends.


When the weather is nice, fishing excursions are just a short drive away at the local Recreational Fishing Complex. Ideal for seniors with a passion for outdoor activities, residents spend the day fishing then enjoy a delicious cook-out.

Other excursions include shopping trips to supermarkets, local farmers’ markets, and thrift stores, which help promote a sense of independence and empowerment. We also encourage new cultural experiences for residents, so local art festivals and live music concerts are included when available.


Plenty of other fun indoor and outdoor activities, such as local baseball games, move theater trips, bowling, golf, and more, are frequently enjoyed by our residents.
