CHICAGO (July 22, 2019) — For the sixth consecutive year,, the country’s number one resource for anyone seeking information about age-restricted and active lifestyle communities, has named its 55 Best 55+ Active Adult Communities of 2019. Analyzing a variety of factors, including amenity types, lifestyle options, price range, location, resident reviews, and internal sales data, the final results rank an appealing range of options for prospective homebuyers. Earning the top spot this year is On Top of the World, a popular enclave in Ocala, Florida. 

This is not the first time On Top of the World has won an award from the company, not even the first time this year. The age-restricted neighborhood was also named 55places’ Most Popular and Best-Selling Community of 2019, and has been included in nearly every ranking produced by the website in the past six years.“While personal needs and requirements will vary for each active adult, we’ve learned that at the core, affordability, attractive amenities, and social opportunities are the most important factors when searching for a new home in an age-restricted community,” said Danny Goodman, COO of “On Top of the World offers its residents all of that and more, which is why it remains a popular choice. With a Central Florida location, finely-built homes available for reasonable prices, and nearly 200 organized clubs, it’s easy to see why so many love to call this place home.” 

Of course, On Top of the World is followed by 54 other leading communities, 26 of which were constructed by Del Webb, a well-respected home builder in the 55+ category. View 55places’ top 10 below, or for the complete ranking and methodology, click here.
