Question:Are you considering a retirement community?

My friend's parents live in a retirement community where many of the homes overlook the golf course, which is pretty.

They play golf as often as they can, so it's really a great place for them to live.

Answer:

I've visited some of these communities and can see the appeal, especially for a vacation. However, I just can't see living in one. They seem like such artificial environments. I want to see children playing and mingle with people of a wide range of ages, interests and challenges.
