Active Adult Communities

Posted June 6, 2007 2:44 p.m. EDT

The term “active adult community” technically refers to a community where you must be 55 years or older, sometimes 62 years and up, for those who desire a maintenance free lifestyle. But in this ever expanding business this term is swelling and expanding to evoke feelings of luxury, boundless opportunities, and world-class living.

Imagine sipping on a steaming cup of morning coffee in your colorful, vibrant garden, which you don’t have to tend. Hold hands with your loved ones as you appreciate a leisurely walk to a meal designed around your health needs and reminisce over times past with community friends from all walks of life.

Shape up with your personal trainer as your honey enjoys a game of tennis, and share in a couple’s massage afterwards. And to top it all off mix it up in a fantastic social hour before coming home to your newly cleaned cottage. All of this is possible without any travel involved or having to deal with any resources outside of the community in which you live. The triangle area offers a multitude of active adult communities to fit your needs such as The Cypress of Raleigh or The Forest at Duke. The time has come to put your life and desires in the forefront, and what better a place than an exciting active adult community.
