Knoxville is a growing city with tons to do, a beautiful setting, and plenty of 55+ communities.

With Knoxville’s low cost of living, small but thriving food scene, and emphasis on arts festivals including the annual Dogwood Arts Festival, it’s no wonder active adults are looking towards Tennessee. As the home of the University of Tennessee, residents can take classes to continue their education or learn new skills. And, as one of the gateways to the Great Smoky Mountains, there is an abundance of outdoor recreation opportunities.

Knoxville and its surrounding area have five active adult communities with a variety of amenities and home types.

Fairfield Glade

As a master-planned community with no age restrictions, this community earned the prestigious 2015 Seal of Approval from the American Association of Retirement Communities. Fairfield Circle has 7,000 condos, attached homes, and single-family options.

Located in Vonore, just 45 minutes from Knoxville, Rarity Bay is an active lifestyle community on Tellico Lake. Residents have access to a 15,650-acre lake, world-class amenities, and a championship golf course.
