As tiny living continues to gain in popularity, tiny house communities have been popping up throughout the United States and are now available coast-to-coast. There are a variety of concepts available, from eco-villages to vacation retreats, rural or urban living, rent or buy.
These communities typically have common areas such as a community garden, dog park, green space, nature trails, firepits, and recreation areas. They may also include shared amenities like a fitness center, laundry facilities, kitchens, and BBQ grills.
One of the most common questions we get is where do I park my tiny house? Here are 10 tiny home communities where you can park your tiny house!
1. Spur, Texas

“We propose that tiny houses in small towns yield even more freedom and offer a unique opportunity to regain a sense of community and self sufficiency.” — SpurFreedom Website
Self-sufficient individuals or remote workers can enjoy low cost of living (30 percent less than the national average), fiber-optic Internet, and likeminded neighbors. You can find out more on the SpurFreedom website.
