For active adults who enjoy boating, there are several exciting retirement communities in North Carolina.

There are few things better than spending a day out on the lake boating, whether it’s to fish, soak up the sun, or just to enjoy a peaceful ride on the water when the weather is nice. It’s even better when you don’t have to travel far to get out there. Fortunately, for active adults who love recreational boating, several communities throughout North Carolina have direct access to some of the state’s most popular lakes.

Here are four active adult communities in North Carolina that are big on boating.

Lake Walk Freedom Homes is located 20 minutes from Uptown Charlotte in the small town of Mooresville. With development having begun in 2017, this community will feature approximately 120 single-family homes upon completion. One of the community’s biggest draws is its direct access to North Carolina’s largest man-made lake, Lake Norman, which spans more than 32,000 acres and boasts over 520 miles of shoreline, giving residents plenty of areas to explore while boating.

Along with the easy water access, the development offers homebuyers five single-story floor plans to choose from, ranging between 1,588 to 1,906 square feet. Plans include two to three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an attached two-car garage.

Notable amenities in the community include an outdoor pool and patio, bocce ball and pickleball courts, a dog park, and walking and biking trails as well as social groups. There’s also space for R.V. and boat parking for residents to use when they aren’t boating or camping.
