The Best Is Yet to Come at The Towers at Laguna Woods Village

The Galleria, which leads to Tower Two.

Now that we are in the midst of a sandy, sunglass-tinted, umbrella-shaded summer, let our thoughts drift lazily to our youth — when summer wasn’t so much a number on the thermometer as a state of mind. Before summer jobs, a time when the day was long, hot and filled with activities: swimming, baseball, matinees and building tree houses. Then responsibility tapped us on the shoulder and sent us to work. What if you could return to those worry-free days of bliss in the autumn of your years? The Towers at Laguna Woods Village invites you to do just that: Pick up where you left off, doing what you love, where you love, with the people you love.

Situated equidistance between Los Angeles and San Diego, The Towers at Laguna Woods Village is living at its most robust. Two high rise condos overlook the panoramic view that the park-like grounds afford. The cool Pacific waters crest and retreat on the shore of scenic Laguna Beach four miles away. The artfully manicured private golf course surrounds the fourteen story buildings; six swimming pools (!) glimmer like crown jewels around the Towers, the residents at-play down below appearing like tiny ants. Step inside the Spanish-inspired, Regency-decorated Towers. With 311 units varying in size, when you’re a member here, everything – utilities, cable, club memberships – is included in this comfortable abode. Included is weekly housekeeping, which affords you more free time, as do the two fine dining rooms that serve a sumptuous dinner of your choosing, from a full menu.

The Crystal Dining Room, which leads out to a patio and fountain.

Free time to do what, you ask? Well, the opportunities are virtually endless, with clubs that range from the commonplace like gardening, bridge, photography, crafts, dancing and needlework; to the more outré clubs like lawn bowling, aerospace, karaoke, nutrition, science, ukulele and Shakespeare — ensuring that you’ll find your niche, or maybe a few!

There are groups for nearly every activity you can dream up. A weekly itinerary includes bingo, Wii Bowling, creative writing, religious services and laughter yoga — and they change weekly! A short free bus ride away is golf (Have you ever teed off for an $8 green fee?), tennis, swimming, badminton, bocce ball, board games, live entertainment – even an equestrian center. All of this is inside the master community of The Towers at Laguna Woods Village. And it’s all included in the club membership!

The Towers is strategically placed inside a hubbub of culture and activity, if leaving the grounds is what you desire. Plenty of entertainment centers, education facilities, restaurants and shopping areas dot the abundant Cali landscape — only a short drive, or ride, away. A retirement community this is not. This 55-plus palace is one of the best kept secrets in Southern California.

Because the summers of our youth, while simpler times, should only be savored momentarily. Life is best lived in the present — why be nostalgic for the past when the best is yet to come?

The Towers at Laguna Woods Village is located at 24055 Paseo del Lago W in Laguna Woods. For more information, call (949)597-4278, or visit www.towersatlagunawoodsvillage.com.
