Explore low-maintenance communities for active adults

Active Adult Communities

With countless benefits, active adult communities are becoming increasingly popular among baby boomers entering retirement. These active retirement communities are designed to complement active adult living and usually feature low-maintenance homes, resort-style amenities, social and recreational opportunities, and proximity to healthcare and entertainment. Some are age-restricted over 55 communities, while others are simply age-targeted and non-restrictive.

Common amenities you'll find featured in these communities include clubhouses, recreation centers, game rooms, social clubs, wellness programs, swimming pools, fitness centers, walking/biking trails, golf courses, tennis and pickleball courts, gated entry, community gardens, dog parks, and more. 

And while the amenities are key, location is also important to an active adult lifestyle. All of these communities provide quick access to daily conveniences, near shopping centers, restaurants, cultural attractions, airports, and metropolitan areas.

If you're looking for a low-maintenance lifestyle, many active adult community HOAs incorporate lawn care, trash pickup, and exterior home maintenance, giving you more time to focus on the things you enjoy. For retirees looking for a lower cost of living, prices range to fit every budget. You can search here by state, region, and even city to explore and find the perfect active adult community near you.
