Active adult communities in Colorado have been around for quite some time. Here are some reasons that have already convinced people to move into this type of community:

  • Peace and quiet. Say goodbye to unwanted noise and welcome to serenity! 55+ communities are usually a lot more peaceful and quiet than typical residential neighborhoods. No kids splashing in the pools or bouncing balls in the street, because all homeowners are over 55 empty nesters just like you.
  • Lots of healthy living opportunities. One of the features that account for the huge popularity of these communities is the availability of a variety of activities. Sporting and cultural activities, the opportunity to find a great hobby, as well as chances to socialize with the other homeowners, are all great ways to promote mental and physical health. Most clubhouses have game rooms so you can play cards, golf simulators to work on your swing year round, demonstration kitchens where professional chefs lead cooking classes, fitness centers with yoga and Pilates instructors, and large areas for dance classes, wine tasting and dinner parties.
  • Safety and security – the developers of these 55 plus communities in Colorado pay special attention to ensuring the security and the safety of their communities. Both the homes and the neighborhoods are developed to encourage community and safety. All the fitness equipment in the clubhouse is specially chosen for adults over 55. Homes are built for main floor living with bedrooms and bathrooms on the first floor. Many of the spa showers are zero curb entry aka curbless showers to avoid trips and falls. The homes and the yards are designed with low-maintenance in mind.
