What Makes the Best 55+ Communities?

The idea behind 55+ communities, also known as active adult communities, is to provide opportunities for older adults to live in a setting with others of a similar age who are also pursuing active retirement opportunities. These communities typically offer amenities that can make it easier for residents to stay active, and they’re usually located near service providers that mature adults are likely to need as they age, including health care.
