Why Inspiration inspires the best in 55+ living

Inspiration holds to the belief that there is always something to do if you want to do it. With one-level homes designed with today’s 55+ buyer in mind, engagement-driven clubs and events, and a clubhouse exclusively for Hilltop residents, Hilltop at Inspiration is leading the way for a new model of 55+ living.”.

“Hilltop at Inspiration is less about an age in life and more about a stage in life,” says Lindsey Linkow, Marketing Director for Inspiration. “We are crafting the new model for 55+ living. These are sophisticated Boomers who now have the time to rediscover passions and interests and want a community that ‘gets them.’ Not their parents (or grandparents) retirement community.”

Authentic engagement is at the forefront and residents choose to be as involved (or not) as they want. With a full calendar of events, workshops, fitness classes, and resident-led clubs, there are abundant opportunities to connect. From guided cycling tours to pickleball club and craft beer tasting to cooking classes, there is always something happening.

Hilltop residents enjoy exclusive access to Hilltop Club, a 9,000 square foot clubhouse with state-of-the-art fitness, a demonstration kitchen, resort-style pool and more. Linkow adds, “And they also have access to the amenities and events at Inspiration. The opportunity to be part of both has proven very appealing. Not to mention the dynamic homes designed with today 55+ buyer in mind, featuring expansive entertainment spaces, gourmet kitchens, spa-like master retreats, and seamless indoor/outdoor connection.”

Riverlights brightens up every day in retirement

Riverlights, and specifically Del Webb Wilmington, an active adult 55+ community, is designed to offer all the amenities with the natural beauty of the Cape Fear River and coastal living. 

“RiverLights is the perfect community for retirees,” explains Elizabeth Coble, Marketing Manager for Riverlights. “Nested on the Cape Fear River in Wilmington, NC, everything you could want in retirement is right at your fingertips.” 

Residents can start their morning with a cup of coffee at Magnolia Social Café, followed by a day full of their favorite things: be it paddle boarding, kayaking, or fishing, heading to a book club meeting, relaxing by the pool, shopping downtown, or making the 10-mile drive to local beaches.  Evenings are made to be enjoyed by the fire pit with neighbors, holding a favorite beverage in hand while soaking up Wilmington’s premier sunset view from the RiverLights boardwalk, playing a round of golf on the simulators at Club Golf, or discovering a new favorite wine at Southern Shores

Coble muses, “The retirees that call RiverLights home have finished the ‘work hard’ era, so our main goal is to foster an environment of endless possibilities that allows them to focus solely on the ‘play hard’ phase that they earned.”
