Baby Boomers are finding some great advantages in retirement communities these days. The Enterprises TV show highlights some of the best.
Retirement communities are not like they were when our grandparents lived in them. There are still some places that offer the standard shuffle board courts, clubhouses with multiple game playing rooms and shuttles to the super market.
As the American population ages and more workers from the Baby Boomer generation are preparing to quit working, and college towns are hoping to lure these prized people to their area. New neighborhoods are being designed and built which offer the retired person great deals on continued learning or on cultural and sports events. In addition, Enterprises TV notes that some college and university professors may allow seniors to audit a class.
People who are close to retiring may want to explore favorite college towns. Many have lower home prices, good transportation systems and top-rate health care. These are all great reasons to seek out a city or town where schools of higher learning are. The Social Security Administration reports that Baby Boomers are retiring at the rate of 10,000 per day. That’s a good motivating factor for colleges and universities to lure the older generations to the area.
