Simply put, they know that retirement is simply a new beginning, a chance to get out there, form great relationships with others who share their passions. They know that retirement - particularly, retirement at communities like Cedar Creek in Aiken, South Carolina - is a chance to live the life that they always dreamed of living.

Life at Cedar Creek begins with the richness of the development's location.
