California senior apartments offer a flexible lifestyle for your active retirement. Enjoy a mediterranean climate year-round in Southern California or 4-season climates in northern mountain areas. There is so much to choose from. Wherever you are in California, it is easy to get to other areas. Two main regions are listed here. They are separated into North and South because the two regions are very different in climate, lifestyle, terrain, restaurant food choices, recreation, and more. You can read our description of California Regions.
