Most unusual retirement communities: There's something for everyone

Golf and playing cards aren't the only things to do in retirement. At least not at many retirement communities, which specialize in unusual activities or cater to retirees with the same interests.

"Just because someone is old doesn't mean they want to sit around and play Bingo and watch TV all day," said Don Shulman, general manager of Fox Hill Senior Condominiums in Bethesda, Maryland, in a telephone interview with WalletPop.

Baby Boomers and their children have moved more often and are spread across the country more, leaving retirees searching for a new sense of community and housing where they can be around people who share the same interests. From senior housing for hippies to people who want to live in high luxury, there are retirement communities for all tastes.
