Most active lifestyle communities, such as, The Fairways at Savannah Quarters and Heritage Hunt Golf & Country Club feature various activities that keep you busy and active, you won’t have time to feel bored.

3. No More Maintenance Work! – Are you tired of raking in leaves during autumn or shovelling snow during winter?
