Head to the Highlands for Active-Adult Southwest Resort Living

I don’t think there’s anything like traditional retirement these days. Instead, successful people are transforming their lives and their careers in their early 50s, and seeking fulfillment with a balance of personal and professional pursuits. They want recreation but they also want community engagement, volunteering, entrepreneurship and adventure. This new breed of boomer-retiree is on a quest for living well in an informal, easy-going yet active lifestyle.

So what is your pleasure? A natural environment in a spectacular setting? Social responsibility and community involvement? 5-Star Resort amenities – with a championship golf course, pool and tennis, as well as hiking, café and clubhouse included?

If you’re redefining the notion of retirement and active adult living – It’s good to know there are plenty of options here in Tucson.

This post highlights one of these new-breed retirement communities that seems to have it all in the beautiful foothills of the Tortolita Mountain Range. It’s called Heritage Highlands, a 50+ active adult development that offers the pleasures of a friendly, engaged resort retirement community in the magnificent Sonoran Desert.

Heritage Highlands is set on Dove Mountain. It also overlooks Tucson city lights and lush cotton fields of Marana. It is private, gated, 24/7 security and expansive with natural desert common areas across the community.

One thing I noticed is that Heritage Highlands puts you close to the recreational and natural wonders of mountain parks, at the same time being conveniently located to the Tucson’s array of educational, cultural and health facilities. If you’re hankering for more metropolitan pleasures you’re also close enough to head up the interstate to Phoenix.

And if you wish to stay close by, Heritage Highlands offers scheduled activities, meetings, local outings and entertainment every month. Or venture off on your own to explore an impressive Clubhouse, arts center, lap pool, fitness center and spa, tennis and golf course and full service Bar and Grill.

Heritage Highlands home sites were designed with unparalleled views of the Sonoran Desert and mountains in mind. A wide variety of Southwest architecture floor plans are available – with native desert landscaping greeting you everywhere you turn.

With its more than 147 acres of common space in breathtaking 360-degree views, Heritage Highlands is certainly ahead of the curve when it comes to superior, active adult living. It’s one great option for you to consider if you’re in the market for an uncommon resort retirement community in the heart of our great Sonoran Desert.
