Fill Your Days in Endless Ways

Time is your most precious resource, and community life allows you to unlock it. Everything you could possibly desire is just a few steps from your front door.

You could start your day with a Zumba class in the aerobics studio. Take a short walk to O'Neill’s Cafe where a cup of freshly brewed coffee and a flaky pastry await to fuel your day. After breakfast, lounge by the pool with an engaging read. Then treat yourself and your friends with a visit to the Art Institute of Chicago, where you can spend the afternoon reveling in artistic masterpieces. There are so many ways to fill your days… how will you choose to spend it?

I go to nearly all the movies they show here on Thursday and Saturday nights. And the musical entertainment on Friday is always first rate…Everybody is so friendly, and you meet people from all walks of life. It's just amazing.
