    Does your perfect retirement involve being near a lake? If so, then you’ll want to start searching for active adult communities that offer lake access in their amenities. Some communities list lakes but may not offer the type of lake that you desire if you plan on fishing or boating.

So if you love the lake and want to spend your Golden Years boating, fishing, swimming, or just enjoying scenic water views, then check out these active adult communities that offer a great lakeside retirement.

    Long gone are the days where 55+ communities are built around golf courses and act as the centerpiece amenity. Due to a falling interest in the sport as well as the lack of support from homeowners because of rising membership fees, more active adult communities are embracing green spaces as a way to get residents to connect with nature and spend more time outdoors. With more developers moving away from golf course designs in active adult communities and instead replacing them with open green spaces and outdoor recreational facilities, these newer communities are giving way to more inclusive amenities like gardens, parks, and extensive walking and biking trails to enhance the quality of life for its residents. Check out some of the active adult communities that have awesome green spaces below.
    Residents of PebbleCreek in Goodyear, Arizona have something to celebrate these days. The active adult community now offers homeowners a new stunning recreation facility featuring an outdoor resort-style pool complex and park space. The new amenity is located on the southwest area of PebbleCreek by units 55A and 55B.
    The wide open skies and the wide open spaces of Texas are home to many sights to behold. The very idea of Texas evokes several things, but beaches don't come close to mind. It is true that a good portion of coastal Texas is where various oil facilities can be found, but it is because of this fact that most are unaware of the other coastal and beach areas. Large expanses, both publicly and privately owned are accessible to sightseers and are as untouched as they were over a century ago. What is perhaps equally surprising is the ecological diversity of Texas and the forests that is contains.
