Benefits of Living in an Active Adult Community – 55 plus

VillaggioI live in an Active Adult Community in Palm Beach County Florida called Villaggio.   I absolutely love it.  There are several advantages to living in Active Adult Communities also known as 55 plus (55+) communities.

It’s an exciting lifestyle for 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 them as a resort-designed communities 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 all your neighbors are practically 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 and unorganized social activities.   Everything is right there.  Most (not all) Active Adult Community amenities include:

  • Clubhouse
  • Clubhouse Café
  • Indoor and/or Outdoor Pools
  • Spa
  • Fitness Center
  • Dance and/or Aerobics Studio
  • Grand Ballroom with Stage
  • Card Rooms
  • Arts & Crafts Room
  • Computer Lab / Library
  • Tennis Courts
  • Bocci Ball

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.

Social Activities give the opportunities to meet new friends of similar ages and interests. Active Adult Communities are actual communities which makes getting together easier and offers an immediate sense of belonging.  Most are gated and most have security patrols, which offers a feeling of protection.

You don’t have to be retired.  Many pre-retirees are moving to active adult communities. By all accounts this concept is a winner.  Active adult Communities’ popularity is rising.
