Some people fear their retirement years.
They don’t want to live in a boring place where they feel old. What they really need is a place that has all the fun, excitement and relaxation they’ve waited their whole lives for, all within easy reach. A place where they feel right at home and can make plenty of friends living a low-maintenance lifestyle that focuses on their needs.
That place, is a Las Vegas 55+ community.
No, it’s not what you’re thinking. The Las Vegas 55+ retirement community of today isn’t about bingo and driving golf carts around the streets… although you can still do those things, if that’s what you’re into ?
In all seriousness, today’s Las Vegas 55+ communities are upscale havens for retirees who wish to enjoy the finer things in life, without the hassle.
According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the 55-plus housing market is showing continued growth as Baby Boomers age, with a projected 66 million Americans expected to be over the age of 65 by 2025. That means smaller, more appropriately sized homes in communities and neighborhoods with amenities aimed at this group, are on the upswing.
We believe that all retirees should at least consider the incredible age-qualified communities you can find today. That’s why we put together a complete list – a tour, if you will – that showcases a few of the retirement communities in Las Vegas.
Let’s begin our tour!
In the master-planned community of Summerlin® that spans the western edge of the Las Vegas valley, there is a growing number of active adult neighborhoods, including its two newest – Regency at Summerlin and Trilogy at Summerlin – that combined, offer two dozen unique floorplans.
Set on elevated terrain at the base of a dramatic ridgeline in The Cliffs, Regency by Toll Brothers offers all single-story luxury homes in nine unique floorplans ranging from 1,665 to 2,428 square feet and priced from the high $400,000s. Regency homes feature a desert contemporary architectural style to complement the rugged beauty of the area, and they include gourmet kitchens, two bedrooms and up to two-and-one-half bathrooms. Several models include indoor-outdoor living opportunities with covered patios and courtyards, and ample flex spaces create opportunities for home personalization to suit individual lifestyles.
Regency’s resort-style amenities create the lifestyle buyers expect, including a community clubhouse spanning more than 16,000 square feet with an indoor lap pool and outdoor resort-style pools; tennis, pickle ball and bocce ball courts, game rooms and an onsite lifestyle director who will schedule classes and plan social gatherings and outings.

At Trilogy, attached homes, which share common walls with neighboring homes, offer 13 different floorplans featuring both single- and two-story living, priced from the high $400,000s. All homes are designed to encourage entertaining with reduced maintenance, while the community’s activities, events, concerts, classes, and clubs offer many opportunities to enjoy life and maintain an active, healthy lifestyle full of fun and socialization.
