Making Atlanta Home for Seniors

An average of two snow days per year means while your family members are up north freezing and salting their driveways, you’ll be savoring the salt on the rim of your margarita. A special brand of southern hospitality means you will be welcomed with open arms and instantly feel at home. A vast smorgasbord of world class restaurants, entertainment venues, cultural attractions and upscale shopping centers means life will be rich with opportunities to broaden your horizons.

Retirement life in Atlanta sure sounds like fun.

Add the fact that Georgia offers a hefty tax exemption on retirement income and seriously, isn’t it time to start packing?

The jewel in Atlanta’s crown is Buckhead, its uptown commercial and residential district – often referred to as the Beverly Hills of Georgia. No wonder Overture selected this prime location for one of its premier 55+ apartment communities in Atlanta.

Buckhead apartments combine the best of all Atlanta worlds: A lovely, suburban residence on the cusp of the south’s most vibrant and exciting city. When it comes to senior apartments in Atlanta, Buckhead apartments are emerging as the place to be.

Chastain Memorial Park

The good news is: If you live in a Buckhead apartment, you don’t have to drive into the city to find fun and relaxation. When the weather is gorgeous – which is just about every day – head to Buckhead’s Chastain Memorial Park. With its 260 acres of jogging paths, playgrounds, swimming pool, tennis courts and golf course, Chastain is Atlanta’s largest city park. The park even boasts an equestrian center and an amphitheater that features entertainment all summer long. The park is also home to the Chastain Arts Center which offers year-round programming. There is no better place to hang out with friends for a picnic lunch or enjoy dinner under the stars, as you enjoy the long list of headliners.

Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza

Ask any senior who lives in one of Atlanta’s Buckhead apartments where they spend the most time and they will point you to Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza. Whether you are looking to do some serious retail damage, or to grab a bite with friends, these community hubs are people magnets, the place to see and be seen.

Legoland Discovery Center

It may not mean much to the grandkids when you tell them you’ve moved into an apartment in Buckhead, Georgia. But, once you take them to Legoland, they will be thrilled you did. Centrally located in Phipps Plaza, Legoland is a kids’ fantasy come true Your grandkids will love the 4D cinema, interactive rides, a build and test center for race cars and a Master Builder Academy where visitors can learn from the experts. Adults also love Legoland – which is why the third Thursday of every month is designated Adult Night.
