New Dimensions in 21st Century Active Adult Living

Tucson is a great mix of Old West frontier and contemporary Southwest - a crossroads of delightful lifestyles where nature, arts, culture and active-adult communities connect. Our city is a favorite for those seeking outstanding amenities, year-round outdoor activities and a breathtaking high-desert environment in our boomer years.

Many of us are looking for a 55+ retirement community that rises to the top in terms of variety of programs, exceptional recreation with an elite championship clubhouse and exclusive housing. I found one residential community where a quality, active lifestyle extends the boundaries and definition of retirement: Heritage Highlands at Dove Mountain. Heritage Highlands is an innovative community that offers all the choices you'd expect (and more) from a premiere development dedicated to exemplary living and expanded horizons for residents.
