When the National Council on Senior Housing anoints you “Best Active Adult Community in the Country,” you have bragging rights among those golf communities trying to attract baby boomer couples. At the 800-acre Heritage Shores, the accent is on “active,” with a 7,000-yard challenging golf course by the under-rated Arthur Hills, and nearby off-site activities that range from bird watching to antiquing to lolling on the beach. The community’s 28,000-square-foot clubhouse is a magnet for residents seeking a quality meal among friends. Single-family golf homes start in the low $200s, making Heritage Shores a best buy among 55+ communities. The community recently opened a Phase 3 waterfront Village Center, but if you hear the call of the ocean, it is a mere 45 minutes away.
