If you’re looking for a top pet friendly 55+ community in Palm Beach County, Florida and having a hard time finding one, here is my help. It can be a annoying task digging through listings to find a 55+ pet-friendly community
What do I mean by pet-friendly communities?
Won’t every community take dogs? Unfortunately, the answer is NO.
Most of 55+ communities have pet restrictions.
If you’re a dog person like me, please don’t go online and fall in love with a house until you’ve fully checked out their pet restrictions.
The following communities are located near shopping, grocery stores, restaurants, houses of worship, highways, medical facilities and more.
It is probably the most recognizable by name, of the 55+ dog-friendly communities in Delray, Boynton Beach and Lake Worth. Currently, there are 10 Valencia communities: Valencia Lakes, Valencia Isles, Valencia Shores, Valencia Falls, Valencia Palms, Valencia Pointe Valencia Reserve, Valencia Cove, Valencia Bay and Valencia Sound.
The Valencias have beautiful clubhouses overlooking lakes with fitness centers, pools, restaurants, shows, clubs, cards, tennis, pickle ball, tennis courts and much more.
The Valencias have winding paths that can be used for walking, riding bikes or walking your dog.
The Valencias are all pet friendly, but pet restrictions can and do vary between the different communities.
