The lush forested land and trails surrounding Savannah Lakes Village offer abundant opportunities for enjoying the outdoors. In addition to the beauty of our most prominent defining feature, Lake Thurmond, there are some smaller points of interest that those living in or visiting the Freshwater Coast will want to enjoy.
There have never been more diverse options for selecting a master-planned community than we are seeing these days. If you haven't yet started the decision process, you may not know all that you're getting into. The near-endless array of choices doesn't take long to paralyze even those whose goal is clearly articulated. You'll need to make a decision about the following:
Savannah Lakes Village (SLV) is a master-planned lifestyle community located on the shores of Lake Thurmond in McCormick, South Carolina. The community boasts tremendous outdoor recreation features from the lake to the three nearby state parks and beyond — all of this is frequently enjoyed by the more than 2,500 residents (as of summer 2020) who call SLV home and thousands of other property owners across the country who visit as often as they can. Hundreds of members and their guests work on their golf game at the Tara and Monticello golf courses each week. Guests are welcome to make a tee time, but what are your options for lodging if you are planning to travel and visit? Can you enjoy a few days at Savannah Lakes Village without having a close friend host you in their home?
This is a press release from ideal-LIVING Magazine, a publication that has been "helping people find their ideal community and home for over 25 years."
WILMINGTON, NC - ideal-LIVING magazine is pleased to announce its fifth annual “Best of the Best” issue which features the Top 100 Planned Communities. The magazine will be in homes by July 16th. The honorees will also be revealed on www.ideal-LIVING.com/bestofthebest at the same time.
Surveys were collected at the 2020 Ideal Living Real Estate Shows which showed the top amenities in which potential homebuyers were interested. The Top 100 amenity communities were chosen based on the top amenities requested, including walking trails, wellness facilities, proximity to healthcare, social clubs, swimming, a sense of community, cycling, racquet sports, gated, lake communities, and coastal communities.
A special editorial committee assembled by the publication reviewed the qualifications of each nominee and selected the winners in 12 categories.
Among the categories honoring residential communities are the “Top 100 Planned Communities,” “Best Lake Communities,” “Best Mountain Communities,” “Best Coastal Communities,” “Best Golf Communities,” “Best Tennis and Pickleball,” and those with the “Best Wellness & Fitness Facilities.”
“The ‘Best of the Best‘ feature honors those areas and communities which deserve special recognition for their outstanding qualities, facilities, and programs,” said ideal-LIVING’s Editor and Associate Publisher, Kelly Godbey. “During the challenging times, we hope that this special feature in our Summer 2020 edition offers our readers a chance to find a better quality of life in a safer environment. Lifestyle is now more important than ever before and with many people able to work from home gives the ability to relocate sooner than they thought possible.”
For more than 25 years, ideal-LIVING magazine has been a leading national publication for readers who are nearing retirement age or who are interested in the benefits of relocating their families or businesses. The magazine’s parent company, RPI Media, also distributes other publications like the comprehensive ideal-LIVING Relocation Guide and sponsors the company’s signature ideal-LIVING Real Estate Shows each year.
