Tennessee is the 3rd most popular retirement state at Topretirements, a ranking which might surprise a lot of people. Its combination of mountains, lakes, interesting towns, and low cost attracts a lot of baby boomer retirees who a few years ago might have gone to Arizona, Florida, or the Carolinas.
This issue of our communities newsletter provides you with a small sample of the TN active adult communities that are home to many of these people. There is a surprising range to Tennessee's 55+ communities - from the fairly small development with minimal amenities to several giant communities, and even a master-planned community in the spirit of new urbanism.
