Lakewood Ranch has garnered national attention as a great place to retire.

Where to Retire magazine has named the community one of the country's 50 best master-planned communities.

The magazine's top picks for retirees will be announced formally June 18, at which time its July/August issue hits newsstands.

“From the beginning, Lakewood Ranch was designed with the consumer in mind,” said Rex Jensen, president and CEO of Schroeder-Manatee Ranch, Inc., the developer of Lakewood Ranch. “As the Ranch continued to grow, we constantly recalibrated our product based on changing consumer needs and desires. Over the course of the last several years, we saw foresaw a wave of baby-boomers who would be retiring and looking for someplace where they could continue to enjoy their active lifestyles.”

Lakewood Ranch offers a variety of amenities, including a country club and golf courses, as well as more unique venues, including the Sarasota Polo Club, the Premier Sports CAmpus and the Ancient Oak Gun Club, among others. Residents also can participate in clubs and organizations, parades, chili cook-offs and other community events.
