One of our best amenities at Taylor Glen is our top-notch location that gives residents prime access to the best shopping, dining, and entertainment throughout the delightful city of Concord. Because our Life Plan Community is located halfway between North Carolina’s beaches and mountains, residents can have the best of both worlds while enjoying all the perks Concord has to offer, including nearby golf courses and tennis courts, and a host of other attractions. Plus, Charlotte is only 30 minutes away.

Although our on-site amenities are designed to provide enriched independent living with everything residents need right at their doorstep, it’s always nice to explore the surrounding community for a fun night out with friends, travel to see loved ones, enjoy some fresh air at an outdoor event, and more. 

When you call Taylor Glen home, it’s an opportunity to live your best life at a retirement community designed for exceptional senior living in a city bustling with fun things to do.

Golf Courses

Legendary golfer Greg Norman said, “Happiness is a long walk with a putter.” When the weather is stellar, how about a round of happiness with friends? Concord has a number of courses for you to enjoy, including the Rocky River Golf Club designed by Dan Maples that offers 18 holes, a practice facility, a clubhouse, and a restaurant. If you’re looking to join a private club, check out the Cabarrus Country Club, established in 1927 — a 6,986-yard, par-72 championship course.

Botanical Garden

Whether you have lived in the city all your life or moved here to call Taylor Glen home, have you ever stopped to smell the roses at the botanical gardens on the University of North Carolina at Charlotte campus? With beautiful acres devoted to annuals, perennials, shrubs, trees, and more, you’re sure to enjoy a colorful, peaceful stroll while admiring nature’s best. Make sure to explore all the horticultural goodness in dedicated locations within the Susie Harwood Garden and the Van Landingham Glen.

Catch a Flight

Have some family to visit or just want to get away? Having flight transportation close by is a fantastic perk! With the Charlotte Douglas International Airport only being a 30-minute drive from Taylor Glen, it’s the in-and-out access you want for convenient travel adventures. Some of the major airlines flying out of CLT include Air Canada, American Airlines, Delta, Southwest, and United Airlines (check to view more).


Concord is a shopper’s paradise! From high-end retailers to hunting for antique treasures and everything in between, residents love the premium convenience of having a variety of name brand stores, eclectic boutiques, and specialty shops right outside their door. Make sure to visit Concord Mills shopping center, The Depot at Gibson Mill, The Children’s Place, and Afton Village Farmers Market.  

Collegiate Sports

Being surrounded by higher education means residents with a penchant for collegiate sports can take their pick of what games to check out year-round! Whether football, basketball, baseball, etc., check out the different sports schedules for the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Pfeiffer University, Davidson College, and Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, and have some fun while supporting local athletes.
