We all want to live in a nice house in a safe neighborhood. And “America’s Best Community And Club” offers its residents both of those things and a great deal more.
Hampton Lake, in beautiful Bluffton, South Carolina, sits on 165 acres of water that’s perfect for fishing and boating, with plenty of other great amenities for the entire family you might expect to find at a resort. It’s home to a cross-section of people, from local executives to retirees to families from the Northeast and Midwest who just wanted to live in warmer weather.
Like many areas of the South, Hampton Lake is attractive to older citizens who want to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle in a less harsh climate. Retirees who engage in three or four activities on a regular basis are much happier than those who are less involved. Most of the 40 million people over 65 (some 13% of the population) aren’t ready for the rocking chair, and they value their good health. In fact, 81% of them cite that as the single most important ingredient for a happy retirement. For an older person, living in a safe neighborhood like Hampton Lake means being free to take advantage of recreational opportunities, and a recent survey of MONEY readers found that 48% were enjoying retirement more than they thought they would.
Low country living in South Carolina is both relaxed and casual. It’s a very friendly environment, with just the right touch of old Southern charm. And the lake lifestyle has its own special appeal, putting you in touch with nature and melting away any stress.
If you love the outdoors but want a safe neighborhood, easy access to golfing and other activities and more, Harbor Lake might be the perfect location for your new home.
Bluffton is just minutes from Hilton Head and the Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge and about a half hour drive from Savannah.
