Walkable San Diego 55 Plus Communities

Here are some ideas on where to live in San Diego’s walkable 55 plus communities or somewhat walkable 55+ communities in San Diego that are near several shops, dining, etc.

The amount of walking required to get to places without a car in these San Diego plus  communities vary depending on the level of fitness and or what is an individuals’ definition of a truly walkable community.

There are only a handful of 55 and over places where you could live without a car for basic conveniences like grocery stores and dining. And even these communities do not score high on WalkScore given their own set of criteria.

You will still need a car for a lot of other things – and such is the reality of retiring or living in San Diego County.

Other options to supplement accessibility to places include hiring an uber taxi, senior center services, and some public transportation.

The list below will give your best bet for San Diego 55+ communities that are either walking distance or realistically a very short driving distance to many convenient places that one needs for basic living.

Walkable San Diego 55 Plus Community in Del Sur

Avante at Del Sur is San Diego’s new walkable 55 and over community built in 2018 with low maintenance condos and smart home features.
You could go without a car in this master-planned community and walk a couple of blocks when you want to visit a nearby grocery, store, and a few restaurants.
Nearby stores that you can walk to within a few blocks from Avante Del Sur include Sprouts Farmers Markets in Del Sur and a Target Store that services the Del Sur area.
See our Avante Del Sur video to see a sample of other places you can walk to.
