Active Adult Community Roundup: Cumming, GA

cumming-c8695b805a6b62d70836921076f9d9e5

The Atlanta suburb of Cumming, GA has been known for a few years now as one of the best places to retire.

While aspects such as tax friendliness, healthcare access, and social environment attributed to its reputation, Cumming also has great outdoor attractions such as Sawnee Mountain Preserve and the Big Creek Greenway, a linear park that will eventually have 15 miles of concrete paths for walking, biking, jogging, and inline skating.

On top of that, there’s plenty of world-class restaurants and shops in Cumming, such as the Collections of Forsyth open-air mall. Just under an hour away is Atlanta, where there’s a never-ending array of restaurants and attractions.

Another reason so many people are retiring to Cumming is the selection of active adult communities. We’ve found some of the most popular.
