Living in a Lock-and-Leave Retirement Community Makes Senior Traveling Easy

In retirement, many people envision having the time to pursue their hobbies, visit with friends and family, and finally take that extended dream vacation. Unfortunately, retired homeowners often find themselves homebound because leaving for more than a couple of days means finding someone to watch over their property.

Safety and security are major concerns for homeowners who want to travel. A driveway covered in snow, an overgrown lawn, and flyers and newspapers piling up on the front porch can attract unwanted attention.

There is an alternative.

At The Avenues Crofton Park, several residents travel extensively, and during the busy travel season, they are free to book their extended domestic and international vacations without worrying about who will pick up packages or water the lawn. Our staff ensures that any delivered packages are securely stored until residents return, and their cars are safe in our underground, climate-controlled parking garage.

This setup also fosters a bit of an armchair travel experience for those content with staying within the community, enjoying the nearby open spaces, and relaxing. When resident travelers return, many share their experiences and photos in casual social settings, enriching the community with their stories.

Living in a maintenance-free retirement community like The Avenues Crofton Park offers the freedom to do all the things you dreamed about before retiring, such as traveling. Our residents enjoy the convenience of a lock-and-leave lifestyle, with the freedom to pack their bags and hit the road for a week, a month, or an entire season knowing their apartment or cottage will be just as they left it when they return.

Even when staying close to home residents enjoy a carefree lifestyle. They plant vegetables in our community gardens, share vacation tales during our weekly Mimosas and Mingle mixer, and participate in patio games and outdoor cookouts. Our staff also helps facilitate social interactions, including show-and-tell sessions with vacation photos.

If you dream about getting away from it all when you retire, The Avenues Crofton Park lifestyle offers the freedom to follow your wanderlust without worrying about home maintenance or security.
