What exactly IS a 55+ active adult community?

It is a neighborhood designed for active older adults who want to be a part of a community with other active and independent adults.  Most of these communities provide residents with maintenance free living and a range of onsite activities and amenities.  They are designed to offer older adults the chance to enjoy independent, active lifestyles while providing easy access to a range of social, recreational and educational pursuits.  Residents will have many opportunities to interact with their neighbors forming friendships and bonds throughout their retirement years.

Maintenance and Home Owner Association (HOA) fees should be expected in an age restricted community.  The amount of the fees is determined by everything a community offers. Some communities promote a resort or vacation feeling through activities and amenities while others emphasize social or cultural life.  Usually the more amenities available, the higher the monthly fee will be.

55+communities offer things like:

Tennis Courts

SwimmingPools

Golf Courses

Dining Halls and/or Restaurants

Clubhouses

Fitness Centers

Biking/WalkingTrails

Aerobics and Fitness Classes
