Active Adult Communities Appeal to Active Adults and Offer Amenities-Rich Lifestyles
Historically Florida has been a melting pot for seniors and those older adults looking to retire to a moderate climate and laid back lifestyles. The Tampa Bay area remains a hotspot for older adults, but it is less retirement community and more focused on the needs of active older adults. The region offers a handful of attractive, amenities-focused communities from affordable to resort-style living.
Active Adult Communities
Active Adult Communities have been springing up to offer mature adults communities in which they can thrive and remain as active as they please.
Tampa Bay Golf and Country Club is one of the more notable Active Adult Communities. Affordable homes and villas are available for around $200,000 and up. The community features an excellent golf course and club, tennis courts and resort-style pool, among other recreational activities. Within 30 minutes drive to downtown Tampa, this active community remains popular with youthful adults, some not even close to retirement.
North of Clearwater, Heritage Pines is one of the region’s premier Active Adult Communities with first class golf course and stunning natural views. The community is “deed-restricted” which means residents own their homes, but the property belongs to the management company.
Valencia Lakes is Tampa’s answer to exclusive adult living. Opened in September 2005, the gated, upscale community features a dozen different single family floor plans, and a menu of high-end recreational and cultural facilities, including multiple tennis and golf facilities, a ballroom and even an internet café, among many other amenities.
