Choosing the One That's Right For You

Active Adult Communities

No two communities are alike. With so many to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you? Discovery travel is the answer. Communities make it easy, affordable, and even luxurious for you to "live like a resident" for the weekend through "Discovery Packages". We recommend visiting several communities in different areas of the country to get the full experience of each before narrowing your options.

Sounds exciting, right? Before you start packing, though, make sure the areas you've chosen fit the lifestyle you want.

Do you really want 75 and sunny year-round? Which activities do you love most? Is access to water essential? Answering these and other questions will help you take a more practical approach to finding the region that suits you best.

Golf, Jimmy Buffet, and Exploring Your Options

If golf is your game, then you’re in luck. Because, active adult communities host some of the finest courses in the world. Texas lake communities, communities nestled in the foothills of Tennessee, New Hampshire and South Carolina, and communities along the southeastern coast host golf courses that wrap around the most idyllic settings.

Speaking of gorgeous courses, Florida is perhaps the most obvious active adult hotspot for golfers and non-golfers alike. With the Florida baby boomer business booming louder than ever, Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville communities are now on the scene. And, they're amping active up a notch. The first Margaritaville community has just opened in Daytona, Florida (recently named one of the top ten places to retire by U.S. News and World Reports).

Florida, or not, once you you know the region or regions you want to consider, decide what else matters to you - amenities, privacy, culture, etc. Would you prefer a gated community? Or, something more Margaritaville-style? Is outdoor space and access to nature important to you? Or, are you happy to have neighbors steps away? Keep these points in mind while exploring communities through discovery travel.

Now, Go Out and Find It!

Take a minute to click on the areas of interest below and scroll through the list of communities associated. But, before settling in on places to discover, plan to join us this winter at an ideal-LIVING Resort and Retirement Show near you to meet reps from these communities and many others. Because, shaking hands and talking to people face-to-face is still the best way.
