A good meal and a few are steps away from your home in these 55+ communities.

There are many amenities and conveniences that help make certain communities are even more appealing to potential homebuyers, the extra something that helps make them stand out above other neighborhoods. One of those extra amenities that can’t be found at every 55+ community, but is certainly an added bonus, is an on-site restaurant.

Having a restaurant so close to home makes a big difference on the nights when active adults are too busy to cook or just want to have an enjoyable evening out without having to drive too far or waste a lot of time on a long waiting list. There are several communities on the South Carolina coast that feature their very own restaurants—below we have highlighted a few.
