55+ Communities, it’s like going back to college again

benefits of living in a 55+ communityWhen I first knew I was moving to a 55+ community (when my wife told me), I didn’t know if I was going there to live or to die.  I knew nothing about it. 

For the past 11 years I have lived in the 55+ community of Villaggio, an Active Adult Community in Palm Beach County Florida.   As it turns out, I absolutely love it.  There are many advantages to living in Active Adult Communities also known as 55 plus communities.

An exciting lifestyle awaits persons in their 50’s and well into their 80’s or more.  Living in an Active Adult Community is like going back to college again.  In fact, we call ours community Camp Villaggio. You can think of 55+ living as resort style living which makes you feel like you are on vacation all the time.

For persons who are ready for a lifestyle change, Active Adult Communities allow you to enjoy new experiences, new scenery, new activities where most of your neighbors are probably at the same stage of life as you.  They most likely have similar backgrounds and share similar interests as you. They are called “Active” Adult Communities for a reason. The club house is generally the hub of organized social activities.   Everything is right there.  Most (not all) Active Adult Community amenities include:

  • Bocci Ball

  • Tennis Courts

  • Computer Lab / Library

  • Arts & Crafts Room

  • Card Rooms

  • Grand Ballroom with Stage (Social Hall) 

  • Dance and/or Aerobics Studio

  • Fitness Center

  • Spa

  • Indoor and/or Outdoor Pools

  • Clubhouse Café

  • Clubhouse

If that’s not enough, join any of the many clubs and special interest groups. And if there’s not one to suit your fancy, you can probably start one of your own.

Many Social Activities will give you the opportunity to meet new friends of similar ages and interests  and offer an immediate sense of belonging.  Most communities are gated and most have security patrols, which offers a feeling of protection.

There are more than seventy Palm Beach County Active Adult Communities that offer Active Adult Lifestyles.  Here is a link to 40 Different Active Adult Communities including ALL of the 9 Valencia Series by GL Homes.
