Evaluation Criteria Culture & Arts

Retirement doesn’t have to mean the end; rather, it’s a new beginning.   It’s a time to actively engage in the world and enjoy the vitality and energy of those around you.  For those who have always enjoyed the culture and arts side of life, it doesn’t have to stop now. When there are so many retirement destinations to choose from, it can be a difficult task narrowing down the choices and finding exactly what you are looking for.   BestRetirementDestinations.com has taken the guesswork out of that burden.
We have done extensive research into what is important for those seeking a retirement destination filled with Culture & Arts.  The communities that appear on our ranking system have proven themselves to be above the standard in five criteria areas: Ranking Criteria: Galleries & Museums:   The quantity and proximity of area cultural opportunities are included in this category, both stationary and traveling.  Does the community maintain an art gallery?  Is there a number of museums locally? Theatrical Arts:   Many retirement communities’ have a theatre and offer performance events for their residents. The extended local theatrical events are also taken into consideration for this ranking.  Is there an opera house in close proximity?  A  facility with a continuous array of events?  Culinary Diversity:   Food is at the center of most social events.  This ranking includes the culinary choices and proximity of those restaurants both in the community and the surrounding area.  How many restaurants are located in the community? Is there a large ethnic diversity in restaurants in the local area? Social Networking:  Whether the community provides an opportunity for social gathering of residents is a very important factor for most people.  This criterion reflects how often and what types of social networking is offered. Safety/Security:  This includes the level of the security force on duty.  Is there 24 hour security that patrol?   Are the communities gated?  Are all public area’s well lit at night?  The level of fire protection and the response time is also an important component of this criterion.
