Las Vegas Retirement Communities With Walking Trails
Whether it's from the huge influx of people moving from California or from cold weather cities from across the world, Las Vegas is quickly becoming one of the top retirement destinations in the U.S. The dry desert climate, the affordability compared to other retirement destinations, and the world-class shopping, dining, and entertainment truly make it a one-of-a-kind place to spend your golden years, and it seems the secret is definitely out.
Most active adult communities in Las Vegas offer ample indoor spaces for activities like exercise, crafts, and gatherings when the weather is hot, as well as hiking, walking, and biking trails for when the weather is more amenable. For retirees, though, the opportunity to move into a community that’s close to walking trails is a big bonus. So here is a closer look at just a few Las Vegas retirement communities with walking trails.
Trilogy Sunstone is a 55+ community located in northwest Las Vegas that offers its residents resort-style living and a location that’s close to many opportunities for outdoor adventures. Trilogy residents have access to the exclusive Cabochon Club, which offers beautiful green spaces, gathering areas, and a resort-style pool on the property.
Outdoor sporting options include pickleball, bocce ball, the resort pool, and several community parks. Residents participate in yoga in the gardens, as well as visit with their families amongst the beautiful shade trees. The community has several miles of multi-surface trails, including a 200-meter loop for speed runs and timed workouts.
