Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) August 31, 2013
Seasons at Prince Creek West, the Grand Strand's premier 55+ active adult community, has been named one of the 50 best master planned communities in the United States by Where to Retire magazine, the country’s leading authority on retirement and retirement living.
On a bi-annual basis, the publication’s editors carefully review over 100 master planned communities in the continental US and narrow down what they consider the very best. Selections are based on location, amenities, home construction, the size of the development and the development’s overall success.
While officials at Seasons knew they were being considered for the honor, the announcement of the top 50 was closely guarded until the recent release of the publication.
“This is quite an honor,” said Dennis Ouellette, Chief Operating Officer of Dock Street Communities’ Active Adult Division. “The fact that the selection is made by an unbiased panel of judges lends a great deal of credibility and prestige. When the editors at Where To Retire announce that your property been selected, it's a real coup!”
The country’s 50 best master-planned communities selected by Where to Retire magazine highlight a resurgent era in active-adult and master-planned living--in demand now more than ever with the boost in the economy and the coming of age of baby boomers. The list of “the 50 best” is the only one of its kind, focusing on communities rather than locales and featuring first person testimonials by current residents.
“Time and again, the retirees interviewed for the story told us their neighborhoods give them opportunities to try different activities, connect with like-minded people and in the process, build brand-new lifestyles,” said Where to Retire Publisher, Karen Northridge.
The late summer issue of Where to Retire marks the eighth biennial honor roll of America’s best master-planned communities. The magazine is on sale now at various newsstands and bookstores.
