Active Adult Communities are one of the latest trends in senior housing. They are geared towards adults 55+, requiring at least one member of each residence to be at least 55. They typically offer a wide range of services, social events, amenities, and activities to attract and serve residents. Local communities range from single family homes to condominiums to apartment style living.

Here are a couple of nearby communities that fit this style:

Sun City is a very popular community for active adults age 55 and older who desire an active social calendar. Located in historic Georgetown west of I-35 off Williams Drive, this master planned community features a variety of model and resale homes. The community offers small-town living and since its opening in 1995, Sun City has exploded in growth. Amenities include championship golf courses, a fitness center with tennis and a resort-style swimming pool, miles of walking trails and an activity center that offers art studios, wood shop, and a computer lab.

Tuscan Village has two locations – in Lakeway and Horseshoe Bay. They have a combination of single family homes and condos. Condos in Lakeway range from the upper $200’s to upper $300’s and homes are typically in the $400’s and $500’s.
