With low taxes and a low cost of living, amazing year-round weather, miles of beaches and plenty of world-class golf courses, as well as some of the best cities in the country to retire to, it’s no wonder that so many people are choosing to call Georgia their retirement home each year. Along with these amazing benefits, Georgia also has some of the best active adult communities in the country, meaning that you’re sure to find an amazing retirement home in the Peach State. Below, find 10 of the most popular communities in Georgia.

Del Webb at Lake Oconee - Greensboro, Georgia

Heading east from Atlanta we find another incredibly popular community, Del Webb at Lake Oconee located in Greensboro, Georgia, a town situated roughly between the larger cities of Atlanta to its west, Athens to its north, and Augusta to its east. You can probably tell from the name, but the feature that makes Del Webb at Lake Oconee so popular is the fact that the community is situated directly on Lake Oconee, Georgia’s second biggest lake. Along with private access to the lake, and all its water-based activities, the community also boasts 374 miles of shoreline. 

Glynshyre - Dallas, Georgia

Another very popular and newly built community is Glynshyre in Dallas, Georgia. Glynshyre has 104 single family homes, with floor plans ranging from 2 to 4 bedrooms.

Continuing to make our way around the suburbs of Atlanta we find Sun City Peachtree in Griffin, Georgia, located roughly an hour south of Atlanta. Along with its offering of gorgeous one-level homes that are perfect for retirement, Sun City Peachtree boasts a truly impressive number of amenities, including an 18 hole golf course right on the property. But the activities don’t end on the golf course, as Sun City Peachtree has a wide array of activities from its clubhouse with both indoor and outdoor pools, to the community’s fully operational Peachtree Playhouse Theater.  

Soleil Laurel Canyon - Canton, Georgia

Soleil Laurel Canyon is a beautiful, gated active adult community located on 500 acres of wooded land in the foothills of northern Georgia. Soleil Laurel Canyon provides the perfect retirement location for lovers of the outdoors, with the local Fairways of Canton golf course winding its way through the property as well as countless walking trails and even a 3.5 acre lake that is perfect for fishing (not to mention the beautiful lakeside amphitheater). And this is to say nothing of the beautiful mountain views that form the backdrop of every day at Soleil Laurel Canyon.

Grandview at Gateway - Jasper, Georgia

The Orchards of Central Park - Cumming, Georgia

The Orchards of Central Park are located in Cumming, Georgia next to Central Park in Forsyth County (so close, in fact, that there is a sidewalk leading directly from the community into the park itself). Featuring 160 active adult homes, the Orchards of Central Park was built by the Orchards Group, one of Atlanta’s most well-known and best respected active adult community builders. This experience means that the Orchards Group is well-positioned to build homes meant specifically with active adults in mind, including such features as stepless entries and extra wide doorways. 

Courtyards at Hickory Flat - Canton, Georgia

Built by Traton Homes, a locally-owned and well-regarded builder operating in the Atlanta area since 1971, Courtyards at Hickory Flat is a popular, 64-home community located in Canton in the northwest of Georgia.
