While choosing the right retirement destination is important, it is also important to consider the lifestyle you are seeking and the type of community that will be central to your “new beginning.” The Great Places to Retire section of our web site will help you with the first part. (Your membership UserID and Password for the Active Retirement Community Directory will also give you access to Great Places to Retire and Continuing Care Retirement Community Directory.)
The Active Retirement Community Directory section is designed to help you find the residential community that will lead to an enjoyable retirement. The communities listed offer both social and recreation lifestyles, and usually include a gathering center, recreation center or clubhouse that is the focal point for activities. The homes in these communities range in cost from $50,000 manufactured homes to estate homes on large plots of land that cost from $700,000 to $1,000,000.
A great number of active retirement communities are being built these days to meet the growing number of seniors seeking these types of communities. We add new listings every week.
When you have membership access to this section you will be able to search for communities by state, city and county. You will also have links to a map, the city web site and the county web site. The results of a search for communities in Williamsburg, VA., would look like this sample.
The communities displayed will be identified as either Active Adult Communities (age-restricted or age-targeted), Leisure Communities, Independent Living Communities, or Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs). For definitions of each, click here.
