Active adults and retirees living in Georgia, or those looking to relocate to the area should consider one of the many active adult communities in the Atlanta area. With more than 20 communities in and around the Atlanta area, active adults have numerous choices when it comes to what type of active adult community they want to live in. 

The city’s warm weather climate is ideal for many retirees from northern states who want to live in a mild climate while still getting a taste of four seasons. As a result, the Atlanta area has provided a great retirement community for out-of-state residents as well as native Georgians who want to stay close to home, as well as friends and family. Some of the more popular Atlanta area active adult communities include Sun City Peachtree, Del Webb Lake Oconee, and Cresswind at Lake Lanier.

Atlanta is the ninth largest metropolitan area in the county and is home to just over 5 million people. Situated at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Atlanta encompasses approximately 132.4 square miles. With a vibrant downtown area and sprawling suburbs, active adults can choose to live the big-city life or enjoy a slower pace just outside the city. Most of the active retirement communities in Atlanta are being constructed in the suburban regions surrounding the city. Most of the Atlanta active adult communities are within an hour's drive of downtown and many are located on the city’s north side.

Recreation, Culture & Entertainment

The Atlanta area has attracted active adults in recent years because it offers the conveniences of a large city and it is a major cultural and entertainment hub.
