Retirement Communities

Thinking about where to retire and wondering how to find a retirement community? There are several things to consider when researching retirement communities, such as location, lifestyle, amenities, and levels of care they provide. Retirement communities include senior living options for active adults who need little to no assistance, as well as assisted living, memory care, and more. This includes 55+ retirement communities, golf retirement communities, gated retirement communities, retirement resort communities, and independent living communities, to name a few. Amenities, clubs, and activities in the best retirement communities cater to health, wellness, and an active adult lifestyle.

Living in a retirement community is especially attractive to those who want to live around people in a similar stage of life. Although many retirement communities are open to all ages, there are some things all prospective residents should keep in mind. Whether you want to spend your retirement living in a luxury home or maintenance-free condominium, you've come to the right place to begin your search for the perfect retirement home.

Broken down by state, region, and city, you’ll find community details, lot and home pricing, photos, and contact information for the nation’s top retirement communities near you, or in the retirement destination you’re researching.
