Should You Move to a Resort-Style Community?

For homeowners nearing retirement, moving to a resort-style community  with like-minded neighbors and a lineup of envious amenities is appealing. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Before you make the move, here’s an inside look at what you should expect from a day in the life of community, like Wickenburg Ranch. 

The Benefits of Resort-style Communities 

Location

One of the most important factors in choosing a resort-style community is the location. Wickenburg Ranch, featuring a Trilogy® Resort Community, is located in the historic mining town of Wickenburg, Arizona. As a charming city rich with tradition, residents can enjoy a real, authentic taste of the wild west. Plus, welcoming residents can enjoy generally cooler temperatures than the Phoenix area. 

Although our community hosts a variety of recreational amenities, you’ll likely want to venture out once in a while. You can easily take advantage of things you enjoy, such as shopping, taking in a show, or checking out the local museums. Wickenburg is also home to the notorious Jail Tree, a dude ranch, a ghost town, and an abandoned mine.

If traveling or having regular visitors is important to you, consider the accessibility of the closest airport. Consistently rated as one of the Top 10 Best Airports in North America, Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix makes air travel simple. Sky Harbor serves more than 1,200 flights a day and is located just southeast of downtown Phoenix.

Health

Wickenburg, Arizona is the perfect setting for a healthy lifestyle. With warm weather year-round and better air quality than the Phoenix metro area, it’s easy to enjoy the great outdoors. 

Wickenburg Ranch includes parks and trails that can get you started enjoying the natural beauty of the desert atmosphere.  If you enjoy spending time in the outdoors, these miles of hiking trails are your answer. Grab your friendly neighbor or your furry friend for a day in the vast Sonoran Desert, and don’t forget to bring plenty of water and sunscreen. 

If you’re looking to start a sport, the Courts & Sports Complex is the perfect spot for a little friendly competition. As a lively venue, it’s equipped with four tennis courts, six pickleball courts, three bocce ball courts, and horseshoes. 

If you’d rather get your sweat on indoors, head to Afturburn at Wickenburg Ranch. As a strength and conditioning gym, Afturburn features a cutting edge TechnoGym system, free weights, cardio machines, and the iconic Movement Studio. The Movement Studio is equipped with a fitness on-demand program and online interactive training tool with pre-recorded and live workout sessions. Our advanced fitness facility is fully staffed with personal trainers who teach classes for individuals of all fitness levels. 

Also, your new community should have a surrounding area that serves your needs in the future. This means a walkable community with easy access to health care, including a primary care physician and specialty doctors and a hospital you might need in the future.

Social

Your life in a resort-style community means like-minded people will surround you, so your neighbors will become like family. You’ll also be free from the pressure of sharing the community and amenities with young adults or young families. 

When you’re feeling social, head over to the Clubhouse  or signature restaurant, as they provide a great location to host special events or attend parties with new neighbors. Joining a club is also a great way to get out of the house, meet new friends, and learn something new.

Take a loop around the greens for a healthy social activity. Playing a round of golf has proven to provide several health benefits, including weight loss, muscle gain, agility, and stress relief. It’s also a social activity you can enjoy with your neighbors, business connections, and your closest friends.

Hobbies

Living at Wickenburg Ranch , you’ll find lots of opportunities for new hobbies. We’ve already mentioned hiking and sports, but if you want a more peaceful hobby, you can take up cooking, painting, card games, yoga, or stargazing. 

Relaxation

You’ve worked your entire life. Now it’s time to relax and enjoy a stress-free lifestyle. The best resort-style communities in Arizona should include luxurious resort-style pools and full-service spas. Our sparkling resort-style pool is heated year-round and offers a beach entry, plenty of shade, and one-of-a-kind views. 

After lounging by the pool with a cocktail, walk to Alvea Spa. Inspired from ancient healing rituals tied to the natural environment, the luxurious Alvea Spa was designed to reflect the natural elements that surround the gorgeous property. Alvea Spa features a Himalayan salt wall. With five treatment rooms and an array of services such as massages, aromatherapy, reflexology, and professional hair and nail care, residents will find a soothing environment to rejuvenate their mind, body, and spirit. Professional Spa Coordinators are on hand to ensure a customized experience of luxury. 

Homes

Our community has unique floor plans, with thoughtful design and layouts from four exceptional builder partners. Functional goes hand-in-hand with beautiful.
