As we get older, we want to let go of many of the worries we carried with us while we were younger. Responsibilities that once defined us like cutting the grass and shoveling snow are hassles we would rather leave behind. We swore we would never pay anyone to do these household tasks for us, and yet when the snow falls, and a young man comes to our door looking to make some money, we happily pay him rather than going out in the cold ourselves.
But if we’re going to move and leave our chores behind, we want to move somewhere fun. Somewhere where there’s action around us and activities that we have the option of trying. For years, we lived for our kids, but they no longer live at home. For years, we needed the space, but now the house seems too big. We need a fun place where we can finally let someone else deal with the details.
In Clear Lake, Iowa, there is such a community for active 55+ Adults, who want their maintenance taking care of, fun activities and a cozier home with minimal upkeep.
