Besides manned or unmanned entrance gates, many gated communities are equipped with various security systems and employ security personnel, all of which contributes to residents’ safety and peace of mind.
  • Social activities: Whether one is looking to host friends in the clubhouse or walk the sidewalks with a neighbor each morning, gated communities provide ample opportunities for those looking to socialize.
  • Amenities: Most gated communities offer amenities like pools, fitness rooms, tennis courts, golf courses, or boathouses, just to name a few.
  • Reduced traffic and noise: With private roads, gated communities mean light traffic roads and reduced road noise - perfect for safe walking, biking, and generally calm surroundings.
  • Family-friendly environment: For those with children or grandchildren, a gated community offers peace of mind with typically plenty of options for physical activity and room to explore for the whole family.
  • Homes retain their value: Homeowners in gated communities are often drawn to them because they are known to keep their value over time.

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.
