Myrtle Beach and the surrounding area is an immensely popular retirement location. The semi-tropical climate, beautiful beaches, ample recreation opportunities, great home prices and low property taxes create an alluring invitation for active seniors soon to retire or recently retired. The stereotype of the retiree that just putters around the house all day does not apply in Myrtle Beach! There are far too many things to see and do, making it ideal for seniors who see retirement as the next great adventure.
While there are plenty of homes throughout the Grand Strand that would be great choices for retirees, Myrtle Beach housing developments exclusively developed and planned with the lifestyle of active seniors in mind definitely have an edge. In addition to housing developments, the Myrtle Beach area offers a variety of housing options to meet the needs of seniors at all different levels. For those who have no intention of slowing down anytime soon, we present two profiles of top 55+ communities that may be just the right fit.
Cresswind at Market Common
The Cresswind community is located in the highly-sought-after Market Common area of Myrtle Beach. In 2015, Cresswind was the best selling development for active seniors in the Grand Strand. Cresswind offers a long list of resort-style amenities, miles of walking and biking trails, ballroom, fitness programs, an exhaustive list of community clubs for nearly every hobby imaginable, classes, group trips and courts for popular pastimes like pickle ball, bocce ball and horseshoes. It’s not hard to see why Where to Retire Magazine included Cresswind at Market Common in their list of the Top 50 Best Master-planned Communities in the United States.
Seasons at Prince Creek West
Located in Murrells Inlet, just south of Myrtle Beach, Seasons at Prince Creek West is a great choice for active seniors with a zest for nature. With Huntington Beach State Park, Brookgreen Gardens and the Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk all close by, residents are just minutes from being up close with nature and wildlife. The residents also have use of two nearby boat ramps for access to the Intracoastal Waterway for boating and fishing. The general Prince Creek community is also home to the Tournament Players Club Golf Course, a top PGA Tour-affiliated golf course. Like Cresswind, Seasons at Prince Creek West offers an activities calendar packed full of special events, classes, hobby clubs, group outings and much more to suit every interest. Resort-style amenities at Seasons include both indoor and outdoor pools, billiards, computers, library and an elegant ballroom.
