Why More People Are Choosing to Retire on Seabrook Island
It is no secret that South Carolina has enticed retirees for decades with miles of beaches and endless activities, but more people are now choosing to retire on Seabrook Island than ever. It’s not hard to imagine why, as between Seabrook and the surrounding Charleston area, there is pretty much anything and everything that a retiree could ask for!
The recreational services on Seabrook Island are top-notch. Instead of opting for other traditional Southern retirement locations, retirees who like to stay active are choosing Seabrook for its variety of options that keep the heart and mind healthy.
Two of the more popular sports among retirees are tennis and golf. For those who enjoy racquet sports, Seabrook Island has fifteen har-tru courts available to residents all year long. Our Seabrook Island Racquet Club offers private and group lessons for all levels and also organizes tournaments and friendly competitions. Let our tennis professionals set you up with a partner or a group if you do not have one already.
For those looking to spend some time on the green, Seabrook has two beautiful par 72 courses: the popular Ocean Winds course overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designed Crooked Oaks course. There is a practice facility, private and group golf lessons, and tournament coordination available through the club.
If tennis or golf does not spark your interest, Seabrook’s 27,500 square foot Lake House fitness center might. In addition to the standard exercise equipment (treadmills, stationary bikes, and free weights), the Lake House also has a 5-lane indoor fitness pool that is temperature-regulated. Retirees can head to the Lake House on their own, join a yoga or other group fitness class, or meet up with friends in a social and special interest group!
Aside from the excellent facilities and services on Seabrook Island, there are many attractive options in the nearby area as well. A quick drive will bring you to the Lowcountry Senior Center in Charleston, which has walking trails, fitness centers, and hundreds of social programs each month exclusively for individuals over 50.
Conveniently, Charleston is home to some of the best hospitals and other medical facilities in the nation. MUSC is nationally ranked in five adult specialties and Roper St. Francis has consistent high performance in procedures relating to cardiac health. Several other medical facilities are also located nearby.
For retirees looking to stay active in a vibrant community, Seabrook Island has plenty of options and is an increasingly popular choice. For more information on visiting Seabrook or living on Seabrook Island, contact Seabrook Island Real Estate.
