Tennessee's natural beauty and welcoming atmosphere combined with popular cities make it a great option for active adults.

Tennessee is one of the jewels that people keep discovering in the south. As cities such as Nashville, Memphis, Knoxville, and Chattanooga continue to grow, many are flocking to the state for its innovation, its business, its beauty, and most importantly, its people.

And just because it’s located in the south doesn’t mean life is any slower there, unless you want it to be. If you’re looking for an active adult community in the Volunteer State, we recommend a few of the more intimate active adult communities around the area that compliment Tennessee’s beauty and way of life.
