When searching for a retirement community, write down things that are important to you. Perhaps you are looking for a club house, or golfing amenities, or a lodge with a restaurant on site. Although many communities are not designated 55+ in the Asheville area, there are many that are chosen by those who wish to retire.

Those who consider themselves 'active adults' may worry that they'll give up too much independence - however, many active adult communities are simply gathering communities for those who want to live in a social environment.


Much research shows that 50+ adults report the highest level of well-being and happiness when they socialize, volunteer and exercise.


Many of the active adults in the Asheville NC area started out 'up north', retired to FL, and tired of the heat and Florida living, move 'half way back' hence the term 'half backs'!

Our temperate climate and mountain air, with lots of interesting things to do is a huge draw.


The the Asheville Diamond™ areas - from Weaverville to the North, Hendersonville in the South, and East to Waynesville and East to Black Mountain offer community centers galore, along with a dedicated institute to serving senior citizens’ lifelong learning needs. Asheville NC is a great place to be for retirees.


Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

This used to be known as the North Carolina Center for Creative Retirement, established in 1988. Osher offers classes, seminars, concerts and much more.


“We have more than 280 classes, and almost all of our instructors are volunteers,” says Catherine Frank, executive director. “We have about 2,000 members. This isn’t a place where you just come and listen to someone talking in the front of the room, but a place where you can start a conversation with other people in the class.”


Members pay a $60 annual fee, which gives them access to 20-plus special interest groups, as well as the opportunity to attend classes and lectures. See their courses here
