What Makes an Active Lifestyle Community?

What an 55+, or age-targeted community is not, is a retirement facility. In fact most of the people who buy homes in these communities are far from retiring, yet find the lifestyle, and amenities the perfect fit for their active lives. Basically you get to pick your flavor whether you’re a serious golf enthusiast, a nature lover, or a gym rat. These communities are scattered throughout the country with a variety of geographic locations from urban to rural. Some provide lavish resort style amenities, and others are simpler offering only exterior home maintenance. Age-targeted, or age-restricted, active lifestyle communities are made for today’s on the go boomers, and empty nesters wanting less maintenance, and a peer community atmosphere.
