An ideal spot to call Home

Vista Grande Villa is ideally located—close to freeways, shopping, health care, golf courses, and entertainment. Jackson mixes the perfect blend of a vibrant downtown, rich and diverse history, natural beauty, a cultural scene, and outdoor activities. The seat of Jackson County, Jackson is close to Ann Arbor (45 minutes), Hillsdale (45 minutes), Kalamazoo (45 minutes), and Lansing (30 minutes). Yet the carefully-planned campus offers walking trails, idyllic landscaping, and a panorama of opportunities right at home.

Shopping, Dining, Recreation and More

Residents at Vista Grande Villa can take advantage of social engagements, programs and classes, fitness and wellness opportunities, special dining events, and performances, three dining options and a beauty/barber shop—just steps from your apartment or carriage home! Shopping trips and outings are regularly scheduled, and residents can travel conveniently on our Shuttle Bus.

When you want to venture further from home, Vista Grande Villa is close to Westwood Mall and Jackson Crossing, and the shops and businesses of downtown Jackson.

With friends, resources, recreation and entertainment opportunities on the Vista Grande Villa Campus, you may never want to leave at all. But there are programs at the Boos Recreation Center, and plenty of golf courses in the area.

There are museums for every interest in Jackson, from railways and classic cars, to military history and a planetarium. The Ella Sharp Museum is known for creative exhibits and programs. You can see classic films at The Michigan Theatre, a restored, historic theatre from the Golden Age of the Movies.

Jackson offers festivals, food, entertainment, and recreation. Visit Experience Jackson and Travel Michigan to find out more.


With major roads and freeways close by, it’s easy to drive to activities, appointments, and to meet friends. But why drive at all? The Vista Grande Villa Daily Shuttle will take you anywhere within a 5-mile radius, Sunday – Thursday. You won’t miss a service—or your church friends!

It boils down to this: Vista Grande Villa in Jackson is the perfect place to retire—and LIVE!
