Solivita: An Active Adult Community With Great Amenities

Solivita: An Active Adult Community With Great Amenities

Active Adult communities are springing up all over the country. Many of the people in this demographic look toward states like Florida to have the specifications and amenities the areas offer.

Solivita, a 55+ community in Central Florida, is a great example of why these communities are so popular. In the past when people thought about communities for people over the age of 55, they thought of a white-haired grandma making cookies for grandkids, or playing shuffleboard in plaid pants.

However, with the rapid emergence of active adult communities, that image is changing. Much of this is driven by Baby Boomers, people who actively seek modern spas/fitness centers, walking and jogging paths and resort-style pools.

Modern Living

With modern technology and massive improvements in healthcare, people reaching age 55 are no longer viewed as hitting a downward milestone in their life. People are looking to enjoy an active and fun life during this phase of their life, and want to live around others who share this view.

They’re looking for areas that allow them to meet friends, exercise, enjoy their surroundings, and have great times at planned events.

Solivita offers them just that, including activity directors and classes such as yoga and indoor cycling. These classes enable residents to easily find something fun to keep their bodies and minds active and healthy.

Societies for people who want to enjoy their lives are springing up across the country, offering a full schedule of activities in specific and niche communities.

Active Adult communities in Florida offers a club for whatever interests you — acting, foreign films, meditation, billiards, drumming, and model rail roads are just a few of the clubs you can find. With a large number of residents in your community, you’re bound to meet someone who shares your interests.

 

Not a Retirement Villa

Active Adult communities should not be confused with assisted living facilities. One is nothing like the other.

Active Adult communities, often called 55+ communities, are neighborhoods that look and feel just like most other local neighborhoods. An exception is they offer their residence convenience, amenities, and plenty of activities.

These communities also offer a range of floorplans and home prices. Home styles range from modular homes to your ultimate luxury home. There are opportunities for extensive activities. As an example, Solivita offers a lifestyle geared towards those in their retirement years. With two stunning championship golf courses, intimate neighborhood centers, a softball field, miles of green space for walking, cycling and meandering, and too many classes and clubs to count, there are plenty of fun, exciting ways to enjoy living at Solivita.

Stages of Living

Another misconception is that people can only move to communities like Solivita once they’re retired. However, it’s not a requirement that residents be retired. Many of these communities are hubs for business. Residents are still active in their careers, and use the amenities offered at Solivita as great locations for business meetings and networking events.

The community at Solivita is formed by a diverse group, who are in various stages of their lives. The driving factor that brings them together is not their age, or what they enjoy doing, but rather a desire to live a lifestyle they’ve always wanted and explore new hobbies and activities within their community.

 

Active Adult communities offer Great Amenities

The state-of-the-art amenities at Solivita span across several amenity centers. Offering nearly 150,000-square-feet of space, residents have access to three dining venues, two championship golf courses, a multitude of shops, and miles of side walks for walking and cycling.

The Waterfront Galleries include a two-story art and ceramics studio, a fully stocked library, three computer labs and a game room. The Riviera Spa and Fitness Center encompasses indoor and outdoor pools, two spas, indoor track, dance studio and sauna. There are also two heated spas, seven Har-Tru tennis courts, 11 pickleball courts and two lighted bocce ball courts.

 

For the Golf Lover in All of Us

The Oaks Course was designed by Ron Garl. The course is accented with a hundred-year-old oak tree strung with hammocks for shady lounging, lush colorful greenery and abundant streams and lakes. Solivita’s 4,300 acres of natural wetlands and hardwoods gives this 18-hole, 7,000-yard masterpiece an exquisite view and an unmatched golfing experience.

Solivita’s second course was originally designed by Devlin/Von Hagge and recently modified by renowned golf architect George Clifton. The Cypress Course is a 6,800-yard course and is home to sparkling lakes and water features complemented by white-sand bunkers. The Cypress golf course proves challenging to even the most experienced golfers.

Incredible Evening Entertainment

The Starlite Ballroom is a flexible 17,000-square-foot facility where Solivita residents gather for large and small entertainment events. The ballroom hosts dances and concerts, theater performances, weekly movies, and various parties and banquets. The design creates space which can be sub-divided into smaller rooms for meetings, games and private events.

Conclusion

These are only a few of the many benefits and amenities that Solivita offers its residents. Gone are the days of Bingo and knitting as the only thing people over the age of 55 had to look forward to. These great, life-nourishing communities offer adventure and convenience. Active adult communities have created an incredible way of life for people who love to stay active.
