Now that the kids are out of the house, many baby boomers will be thinking about downsizing their home and moving to a more suitable retirement living community. It can be a difficult task to find the ideal locale for a new residence, but AARP.org recently suggested a few of the more notable areas.
In Florida, the news source recommends Summerglen, an independent living community for residents age 55 and over.
It's an affordable and beautiful location and, for a relatively cheap $125 membership fee, one can use the club, pool, spa, crafts center or join a sports team. It's a very quiet but active adult living community, which could be great for those looking to escape hectic city life.
New Mexico's RainbowVision in Santa Fe has a mountainous backdrop that is sure to appeal to residents looking for a rugged and diverse landscape. This retirement living community also has van services, so one won't have to drive.
Another up-and-coming concept for some retirement homes is intergenerational living. In Duluth, Minnesota, independent and assisted living facilities are built within a larger area and provide the surrounding community with shops and service centers to encourage interaction.
