Massachusetts is famous for its history. Many iconic figures grew up, lived and finally retired here. Today is no different. New Massachusetts retirement communities hit the market every day - catering to active adults like you. Some 55 and older communities are surprisingly affordable. Others are high-end decadent. Here you will them all.
You'll find 55+ communities in every corner of Massachusetts. From Boston to Cape Cod and Lowell to Worcester. Each area, and every community, offers its own unique lifestyle. Some are in the city. Others a little more country. Some even have lake views, while other look over the ocean. There is something for everyone.
It would be tough to find anyone who hasn't heard of Boston. There's good reason for that. Boston is as vibrant today as it was centuries ago. Maybe more. This historic city has everything a city dwelling retiree needs.
Inside the city you won't find many retirement communities. But, within a few miles there are quite a few.
In Lynnfield, you will find The Windsor Estates and Heritage Woods are definitely on the high-end. The units are all open concept and stunning. They are convenient to Lynnfield Market Street and Routes 128 and Route 1. Similarly on the high-end, this time in Weston, are the 55-plus homes in Highland Meadows.
"The Cape" has a quiet, peaceful feel. Its small towns still have mom-and-pop shops. The restaurants are spectacular, with top notch oysters, lobster and seafood. Much of its land is protected, and will be preserved for generations to come. The beautiful rolling sand dunes on its shore-line go on for miles. Even during tourist season you can find a quiet spot without another beach-goer in sight.
All of this makes Cape Cod a wonderful place for seniors to retire. Communities, like The Residences at Seashore Point in Provincetown and Southport On Cape Cod in Mashpee feature maintenance- free living near town centers, golf and beaches. Whether you are already retired, or hope to be soon, The Cape offers a lot for the 55+ community.
The North Shore extends from Winthrop, next to Boston, up to Amesbury and Salisbury along the New Hampshire border. It is steeped in a rich colonial history. Some history infamous, like the Salem Witch Trials. Other history celebrated, like the Birthplace of the US Navy.

Just south of Boston and North of Cape Code - the South Shore has a charm of its own. Boston's South Shore has rural escapes, breweries, fantastic shopping and amazing seafood. Don't forget about its seaside sandy beaches. It's like vacationing at home.
