Master-Planned and Gated Communities in Colorado

If you’re thinking about relocating to a mountain retirement community, you’re in luck— Colorado’s doors are wide open. The state is notable for its diverse geography, which along with its stunning mountain range, includes arid plains and deserts with huge sand dunes, deep canyons, sandstone and granite rock formations, rivers and lakes, and lush forests. But for now, let’s focus on mountain living.

The Perks of Living in a Colorado Mountain Community

First and foremost: the views. If you’re looking to live in a spot with unmatched natural beauty, this is it. The setting exudes peacefulness, and that on its own creates an ideal choice for a second home location or your retirement destination. Low maintenance homes sweeten the deal, giving you more free time to enjoy your surroundings and the amenities within the community.

Outside the gates of your community, adventure awaits. So, the mountain views we’re talking about? They are part of the Rocky Mountain Range, which means access to hiking trails. It’s also known as a winter sports haven. Snow bunnies can indulge in activities like skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and ice skating. But you can consider this place to be a year-round outdoor playground, with all kinds of activities to take part in no matter the season.

Living in a community by the scenic Rockies might just be what you’ve been envisioning for your retirement. And though it offers a remote-like setting, you’re not far from bustling cities when you need a little more action. Pop over to Fort Collins or Denver and experience the cities’ multitude of offerings.

If the serene setting hasn’t won you over completely, there are other perks that make Colorado even more of an  ideal destination.

  • Tax-Friendliness – While retirement incomes are still taxed, tax benefits like large deductions on retirement income for those of qualifying age will help you out. Property taxes here are also some of the lowest in the country. You also won’t find sales tax on food or medicine.
  • Active Lifestyle – If you haven’t guessed, one of the state’s biggest draws is its outdoor recreation. This state has a reputation for promoting a healthy, active lifestyle and attracting like-minded retirees who want to live their best life.
  • Four Seasons – There’s something about being able to experience each season individually, and Colorado offers them all, with a myriad of activities to go with each of them. For most of the year, days are filled with sunshine and mild temperatures, so you can expect to live comfortably all year long.
  • Health Care – Your health and well-being should always be a top priority. You can find exceptional health care facilities here, some of which are nationally ranked.
