New to Carolina Lakes (Resident/Homeowner)  |   Rating

We just bought a resale house here this spring. So far it has been fantastic! The fitness center and the pools have been my go-to places for the past couple months. My health is already improving! Having an indoor walking track has been great for the really hot days and I can imagine it will be nice when the temps start to dip. Aside from our health improving our social life is like we're back in high school! We have meet a lot of nice people here and have jumped right in to clubs and activities. We feel encouraged by the other people living here and it's a wonderful feeling!

We moved here in 2010 and have loved every minute. It's like being on vacation every day. The amenities are fabulous. From our first visit to the community we knew it would be our new home. We've meet wonderful people here and love being involved with so many activities. If you enjoy being social and keeping busy you'll love it here!
