It’s all about location and amenities – Florida Retirement communities

Location and amenities are the most important considerations when searching for Florida Retirement Communities.Some might think they prefer a small, idyllic town away from screeching brakes and honking horns, where all you hear is the sweet laughter of a brook and the comforting songs of birds and crickets.

Some think they can’t be without the hubbub of the big city, where every whim or appetite can be satisfied in a New York second. But is either one the Eden they’re cracked up to be?

If you think a hideaway heaven out in the sticks is the answer, ask yourself: How far away is major shopping? The airport? Live theater? A hospital? Five miles or 50?

We need to be realistic. Although we may dream of getting away from big cities and enjoying peace and quiet, most of us are accustomed to the conveniences of modern living.

If you think you prefer a big city where all those things are convenient via mass transportation or your own car, think again. Do you truly want to fight the grid locked traffic, look for a parking space and pay an outrageous price just to leave your car there for an hour? Do you want to ride the bus with a gang of noisy strangers?

There’s a better scenario. Away from the snow and ice. Away from the noise and litter. Away from lines and waiting. But just next door to realism, where there are fine dining and upscale shopping Mecca’s, and nearby hospitals if you need them.

There are some Florida retirement communities, almost magical, where you can celebrate a whole new lifestyle, and revel in the ease and convenience of anything you want to do, and any place you want to go.

Lake Ashton in Central Florida is such a place, where you will find a gallery of amenities specifically designed for active adults. CRF Communities, an award-winning developer of Florida retirement communities, created Lake Ashton, one of the most popular Florida retirement  communities.

There you can stretch your legs hiking in the preserve, stretch your body at the fitness center under the guidance of a personal trainer, and stretch your mind with fascinating classes and seminars.

Set on over 1,200 acres of ranch land and fronting the waters of Lake Ashton, this community is a gated, active adult “resort” with a 26,000-square-foot clubhouse, 30,000-square-foot health and fitness center, indoor and outdoor pools, two 18-hole private golf courses, lighted tennis courts, a boat ramp/dock, movie theater, bowling alley and more. Its single-family homes, motorcoach garage homes, town homes and villa homes are a real draw to today’s active adults.

If you still miss the sounds of the big city, listen to the thunder in the bowling alley and the crash of your strike, or the whack of the wood meeting your golf ball, the whump-whump-whump of tennis balls. The sounds may be a little different, but they come clothed in new thrills and satisfaction.

It’s all at Lake Ashton, where the living is easy, the fish are jumping and the lifestyle is a sweet lullaby – or Broadway hit – of life – your life in a Florida active adult community created by CRF Communities, an award-winning developer of Florida retirement communities.
