There is no shortage of things to do to keep the heart pumping, the mind active and put a smile on your face. From tennis, to golf, to horse back riding, to swimming, to organized sporting events: the biggest problem you will have is finding room on your busy calendar. Meet new people, try new things, enjoy all of what living in a great community has to offer.

A big perk of living in a 55+ community is the sense of security. The majority of them are gated, so not just anyone can come and go as they please. They also might have private security in the neighborhood providing a visible security presence.

With Ideal-Living, we can help you find your ideal retirement lifestyle. You can compare communities across a broad spectrum of important attributes, such as:

Most Tax Friendly States 
Home values
Cost of living

These are active communities in wonderful locales. Outdoor activities, indoor activities, group activities and much more are the norm in these wonderful communities. There are plenty of options for you, which is great, but it can also seem overwhelming. Buying a second home or a retirement home is a major decision, and we are here to help you with that decision. All of our resources are free,  so sign up for any or all of our publications using the simple form above and we’ll send what you need directly to your doorstep.
