There are plenty of active adult communities to spend your retirement years. However, there are some communities that are the jewels of the crown! If you are now wondering what consists of active adult living, then here is your answer. These are communities that offer its residents the best of amenities and opportunity for recreation. These are communities that offer gorgeous views from comfortable homes and the opportunity to enjoy every minute lived in the community. Most are age restricted or age targeted, so that you get to socialize and live alongside people of same age group. So, they will all belong to your fellow Baby Boomer generation. There are standard offerings but if you are considering a move to an active adult community that offers you more than the standard, then take a look at National Village in Opelika, Alabama.
