What to Look for in Florida’s Retirement Cities Before You Make the Big Move

People walking on nature trailFlorida has long been a prime destination for retirees, so there’s little wonder that so many of the state’s cities have an abundance of retirement communities. If you’re thinking of relocating to Florida to enjoy your retirement, how do you choose the best place to call home?

A great way to start is to consider the lifestyle you’ll be able to enjoy once you relocate. Although just about all of the top retirement cities in Florida offer a relatively low cost of living, some cities may have more job opportunities if you’d like to continue working in retirement, either full or part time. It’s also a good idea to consider factors like proximity to:

  • Airports and expressways if you like to travel
  • Lakes and rivers if you enjoy freshwater fishing
  • Sports venues if you like to attend sporting events
  • Golf courses if your dream retirement includes playing a few rounds whenever you like

The Best of Everything at Cypress Lakes

After you’ve made a checklist of all the things you’d like to see in your dream retirement city, you might also want to make a list of things you don’t – like endless gridlock on the highways. And then you might want to check out Cypress Lakes, a community for active adults 55 and older that’s nestled in a quiet spot between Tampa and Orlando, two of the most sought-after retirement cities in Florida.

We offer high-quality manufactured homes for sale in a beautifully landscaped neighborhood setting that includes an award-winning 32-hole golf course and upscale community clubhouse with resort-style amenities. There’s never a dull moment at Cypress Lakes, thanks to the many social events that go on here year-round. However, when you want to seek entertainment elsewhere, many of the best-known attractions in the Sunshine State are only a short drive away. What’s more, if you want to keep working during your retirement, nearby Tampa and Orlando are two Florida cities that have some of the best job and volunteer opportunities for seniors.
