Explore the Nation’s Best Boating Communities

What can beat the feeling of the wind blowing past you as you’re out on the water? The crisp, cool air and that feeling of serenity are hard to surpass. That’s why boaters can hardly be kept out of their boats for long. Read on for more on boat communities, why people love them, and the benefits they see in living in a boating community.

Why choose a boating community?

Beautiful views and plenty of activity are a major draw for those living in boating communities. If you’re a boater, though, you know there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to boating benefits.

 

  • Beautiful views: Peer out the kitchen window and see the sparkling glassy water out waiting for you? That can be your everyday view when you’re in a boating community.
  • High home value: When you’re near a marina or dock, it’s hard for your home to lose value, many residents in boating communities love this aspect of home buying.
  • Amenities: That’s right...you can have a boat without having to maintain a boat or dock. In a boating community, that’s half the draw. But if you do have your own and want to keep it that way, there are plenty of options for you too.
  • Fishing: If you’re in a boating community, it’s common to go fishing whenever you please, and you’ll always have a friend to accompany you.
  • Active and healthy lifestyle: If you’re out on the water, many love to canoe or kayak or paddleboard. Because you’re near the coast, many live an active and healthy lifestyle.

 

What are the benefits of living in a boating community?

If you’re an avid boater, you know why you love life on the water: the fresh air, the fishing, the coastal breeze... what’s not to love? If you’re newer to the boating life, here are several reasons boaters stay on the water for life.

Ready to take the boat out for a spin?

Retire Tennessee Program Communities

Nashville, TN

Whether you’re ready for full-time retirement or want to relocate to a better place, Tennessee is a state that deserves your attention.

Consider these facts before deciding on another location: Tennessee collects no state tax on income or other retirement-plan benefits and no sales tax on prescription drugs. Property taxes in Tennessee are very reasonable, especially with available exemptions for retirees and age 65+ residents, resulting in the second-lowest overall state and local tax burden per capita in the nation. And Tennessee offers the eighth-lowest cost of living in the U.S.—more than 10% below the national average.

The Retire Tennessee program is a state government initiative designed to spread the word about all of the great reasons for retiring or relocating to the Volunteer State. From the Great Smoky Mountains in the east to the banks of the Mississippi River in the west, a total of 19 urban and rural counties in the program highlight the unique natural attractions and cultural amenities that each has to offer.

Tennessee has more than 60 state and national parks with some of America’s finest freshwater fishing lakes and hiking destinations that range from the 210-mile Cumberland Trail to Chattanooga’s 16-mile Riverwalk. The delightful four-season climate means that you can enjoy a round of golf or a kayak excursion any week of the year. And the world-famous Tennessee music scene includes Beale Street blues in Memphis, the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, and bluegrass festivals in charming mountain towns like Kingsport and Cookeville.

Callawassie Island, located in the heart of the Lowcountry, is a private, gated island community offering world-class Tom Fazio golf and a full complement of amenities including a tennis center, clubhouse, pools, fitness center, and River Club. Secluded from the noise and congestion of the highway, Callawassie lies miles from Hilton Head and is also convenient to Beaufort and Bluffton (15 minutes away); historic Savannah, GA (a 30-minute drive); and the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (40 minutes away). A half-mile causeway provides a relaxing, slow-paced approach to the island, where peace and quiet are as plentiful as vibrant activity.

The community hosts numerous social events, activities and clubs connecting members by their passions for nature, art and giving back locally. Members take full advantage of the island parks, historical sites and recreation areas for enjoying remarkable views of undisturbed nature. Island dwellers have access to four community docks providing leased slips, kayak launches and excellent opportunities for fishing, crabbing and shrimping. The River Club, overlooking the Colleton River, is a warm gathering center with a library and fireplace, family swimming pool, and offers seasonal dining.

For those seeking a golfing experience like no other, the 27-hole, Tom Fazio-designed championship golf course is truly spectacular. Voted one of South Carolina’s top 50 courses, Callawassie recently enhanced the design with a four-million-dollar renovation in 2014. This renovation resulted in a brand-new pro shop with three Class A PGA Golf Professionals. The courses meander intimately along the waterways and salt marshes in a way that environmental regulations have made difficult for newer courses; visual interest is natural not manmade.

Callawassie Island is the first South Carolina gated community to have been designated a “Community Wildlife Habitat” by the National Wildlife Federation. This coexistence brings a true community balance with nature. The island is covered with live oaks and palmettos, egrets and herons, and encompasses a thriving salt marsh ecosystem.

Today, Callawassie is one of only four South Carolina communities holding this distinguished designation. The homes and homesites, including waterfront property, are among the best values in the area.
