Over 55 Communities in Florida

If you have spent years working in the fast-paced, gritty cities of the Northeastern states, or the cool and rain-drenched Northwest, you may want to retire to one of the warm, pastel-colored over 55 communities in Florida. Florida is a state that is particularly known for its retirement communities and its high concentration of seniors. The state’s warm (sometimes hot!) weather and gorgeous white beaches along both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean have long made it a Mecca for those wanting a relaxing retirement in the sun.

For newly retired Boomers, the state’s high concentration of retirees allows for plenty of opportunities for interactions with other seniors who have similar tastes and abilities. Because there are so many retirees residing in the many over 55 communities in Florida, you are likely to be able to find a club or organization that caters to your own particular interests. If you would rather go out for entertainment, you have a wide variety of options as well. Because Florida is such a big tourist state, there are plenty of ways to spend your free time, such as fine and casual dining, museums, theme parks, and shopping.

If you want to hit the links in your retirement, Florida is one of the best places to live. There are more golf courses per capita in Florida than anywhere in the world. And of course, the PGA of America is based in Palm Beach Gardens, and the LPGA headquarters are in Daytona Beach.

Popular retirement destinations include Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale, the Florida Keys, Tampa Bay, and Jacksonville, among many other communities.

Many over 55 communities in Florida are located close to white sand beaches, providing opportunities for water activities such as sailing and gulf fishing.

If you're not enamored of the water, and are looking for slightly less expensive real estate, consider Dade City in Central Florida, which boasts groves of oaks, citrus orchards, grassy hills, and a quaint collection of antique shops. It has more of a quiet, small-town atmosphere than many of the coastal retirement destinations.

Another Florida retirement town with a real community feel to it is Vero Beach, known as the Volunteer Capital of the U.S. A high proportion of Vero Beach citizens donate regularly to charities and volunteer at the long list of charitable organizations based there. The town is recognized as one of the top retirement cities in the state, for its peaceful and friendly atmosphere.

A wide range of well-maintained retirement communities are located throughout the state, offering on-site golf courses, restaurants, fitness centers, and a full calendar of planned social activities for residents. 55+ Communities in Florida offer the chance for active adults to enjoy their golden years in comfort and convenience, relaxing, socializing, and pursuing recreational activities. Residents enjoy community security, property maintenance, and many on-site recreational facilities and amenities. You can find many quality housing options, including small single-family homes, duplexes, and manufactured homes in parklike small-town environments and suburbs, or apartments and condominiums one of Florida's many vibrant metropolitan areas.
