Retiring In Florida is Not What It Used To Be! Why a 55+ Community in Florida?

There was a time when “Retiring to Florida” stirred some folks to envision a small condo or even a manufactured home (trailer) community where your days were spent playing shuffleboard or bridge with an early bird special for dinner...and retiring to your rocker.

Those days are long gone!  -> -> -> -> ->

If you are considering retiring to Florida then check out the modern 55+ communities in Florida

Along the east coast of central Florida you will find a couple of such developments in Viera – Heritage Isle and Grand Isle.

What do these new 55+ communities offer their residents?
  • Gated,
  • Solid newer construction structures (condos, single family home, patio style),
  • Pools and spas,
  • Fitness centers,
  • Clubhouse(billiards anyone?),
  • Basketball courts,
  • Bike trails,
  • Tennis and shuffleboard(hey, its a classic game),
  • Clubs and interest groups (bridge?),
  • Social gatherings and movies,
  • Library on site,
  • Access to golf course next door (some like Indian River Colony Club have the course within gates),
  • Maintenance free lifestyle(Varies).
Check these 55+ communities out and you may just find this kind of rocker among the residents... they all have one of these guys!
