55+ Manufactured Home Communities/RV Parks
First Place: Las Palmas
215 N. Power Road, Mesa
Las Palmas hits the sweet spot for residents of cold-winter states and provinces with affordable housing and amenities that rival more expensive gated communities.
“It’s really the lifestyle we’re selling,” said marketing director Mary Kay Campbell. “A lot of people say they have more friends in our communities than they’ve ever had.”
Residents can take shuttles to visit other friends in other Thesman Communities properties in Mesa and go on shopping and cultural excursions. They also enjoy a multimillion-dollar clubhouse with a fitness center and a personal trainer on staff, a heated pool and courts for tennis and pickleball.
An activities director keeps a full calendar of social and recreational events for almost nonstop entertainment.
