10 Benefits of Choosing a Retirement Community with Clubhouses

Picture of large community clubhouseOlder adults have a variety of reasons for relocating to an age-restricted 55+ community when it’s time to retire, including a desire to stop taking care of a large home and yard and spend more time pursuing the activities they enjoy in the company of other retirees who have time to spare. However, not all 55+ communities are the same. The best retirement communities have clubhouses that bring people together and help them forge friendships over common interests.

At StrawBerry Ridge, our residents repeatedly tell us that the friendships they’ve cultivated since moving to our gated community of manufactured homes near Tampa, Florida, are the top reason they recommend our community to other retirees. Our two spacious clubhouses play an important role in fostering those relationships. Indeed, if you choose to spend your retirement at our lovely community, here are 10 benefits you can enjoy, thanks to our clubhouses:

  1. Eat a pancake breakfast or barbecue dinner with the neighbors at a community event.
  2. Work off some of the calories you consumed during Aqua-Fit classes at our outdoor swimming pool.
  3. Thumb your nose at the rain and carry on with your pool party at our indoor swimming pool.
  4. Learn how to sculpt the perfect bowl or knickknack at our ceramics studio.
  5. Make toys to brighten the lives of children in need at our fully equipped woodworking shop.
  6. Join your neighbors in paying tribute to one of the world’s great inventions, the root beer float, before settling in for the community’s movie night.
  7. Keep your mind sharp by playing bingo, dominoes, Mah Jong, bunco, poker, bridge, gin rummy, pinochle, or pretty much any kind of indoor game you can think of.
  8. Create a memory quilt for yourself or a loved one as part of the All In Stitches quilting group.
  9. Help plan group trips to places near and far as part of the Travel Club.
  10. Show off your pickleball prowess to the grandkids when they come for a visit.
