55 PLUS Active Lifestyle Communities
Is 55 Plus Lifestyle Right for YOU?
My wife and I wondered, and we went down to visit and stay at Valencia Bonita just to check it out.
Here is what we think…
When looking at an active adult lifestyle community, there is so much to offer today. These communities are not like our parent’s communities. They are truly ACTIVE ADULT Lifestyle communities where there are tons of activites, clubs, events and amenities that will ensure that your later years are going to be fun and fullfilled.
My wife and simply LOVED the community feeling where everything that you need is right there. The pools, clubhouse and gym are always expected amenities, but what the newer places are now offering are huge theater rooms where entertainers, comedians, singers, and shows are scheduled to keep your social calendar booked.
The extra amenities like Cooking Clinics are popular, and we would certainly look forward to taking some of those classes. Patrice would fit right in with the Arts and Crafts workshops and I’ll enjoy the amazing pickleball courts and teams.
Now, I must caution you, that all 55+ communities are not alike. If the community is a younger community and is new or recently built, then you will find a younger crowd. If the community has been around for a while, so will you the residents, and you’ll see a different environment and pace.
I can help you to sort through which places might be best for you. The price ranges for these communities depend on the location and the amenities that you need or want.
Anyway you look at it, getting to the Florida weather in a place with the basics that is near everything else you need is a great solution for many. Let’s explore the options together!
