California retirement community

The welcoming climate and varied topography of one of the nation's largest coastal states make California a sought-after retirement destination. In fact, it offers as many top retirement communities as any state in the US. With plenty of perks for older residents, such as dynamic scenery, ocean-side living, top-tier golf courses, and easy access to metropolitan areas and cultural attractions, California's many age restricted communities draw baby boomers from across the nation.

With the Pacific coastline stretching all the way from the Oregon border in the north to the Mexican border in the south, recreational opportunities are abundant for active retirees. The climate of most of the state is formed by marine air from the Pacific Ocean. Characterized as Mediterranean, this climate provides warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters, meaning most outdoor recreation is possible during all seasons of the year. Because the state of California covers such a vast tract of land, there are also some areas with significantly varying micro-climates

Some of the best places to retire in California are 55+ communities within the bustling college towns of Berkely and Claremont, golf communities in Palm Springs and Malibu, the artistic community of San Jose, and quieter towns in Napa wine country. If you are interested in city living and have the budget required to live there, there are many age-restricted apartment and condominium communities and homes within such invigorating metropolitan areas as San Diego, San Francisco, Sacramento, Beverly Hills, and Los Angeles as well.

California retirement communities offer many housing styles, as well as recreational facilities and amenities such as property maintenance, transportation, and security. Most of these 55+ communities also provide organized social activities for seniors, so you can take full advantage of living near neighbors who share many of your interests and abilities. If you plan to retire to California, you can use our resources to find the CA retirement community that best fits your budget and lifestyle.
