Retirement is the goal of every American, and Michigan retirement communities have much to offer active adults. In fact, Michigan has some of the best retirement communities in the United States featuring a variety of activities to keep residents active, busy and enjoying life. With the nation’s largest freshwater coastline, access to the Great Lakes and a plethora of inland lakes, choosing a Michigan retirement living community often means choosing a waterfront lifestyle. Detroit, Ann Arbor and Lansing all offer big city fun, culture and fine dining while smaller towns like Tawas, Saugatuck and Caseville provide a more relaxing, lakeside setting. Senior retirement communities in Michigan deliver an array of diverse activities for everyone.
People have always been fascinated with lighthouses and there are 115 lighthouses on Michigan’s shores for you to explore.
In fact, you can even take a break from your retirement home and spend the night in a B&B housed in a converted lighthouse.
For the more adventurous, the Great Lakes State boasts over 3,100 miles of ORV trails. Head out with some friends from your senior living community, rent a snowmobile or an ATV and have fun.
Many Michigan retirement communities arrange tours of area attractions. You can tour the Ford Rouge plant and see the assembly line at work or you can venture further north to learn about the Soo Locks, operating between Lake Superior and Lake Huron, in Sault Ste. Marie.
Senior housing does not have to equate to a boring retirement. Get out and enjoy all that Michigan has to offer from the roaring Tahquamenon Falls State Park, the breath-taking fall color tours and the popular Tulip Festival held in the town of Holland every May. Michigan retirement communities are designed to let you enjoy a full, active retirement.
