Is Florida a Good State to Retire In?

Is Florida a Good State to Retire In?Florida has long been the premier retirement destination for Americans, typically besting other states by tens of thousands of retirees annually. Generally speaking, seniors flock to the Sunshine State for friendly weather and tax policies, as well as relatively low living costs. But does that mean Florida is a good state for you to retire in?

Perhaps what’s more important than which state to retire in is the community you choose and whether you can enjoy the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed about. Cypress Lakes® is a gated golf course community in Lakeland that offers active adults 55 and older the best that a Florida retirement has to offer without breaking the bank. Our residents live in attractive, comfortable manufactured homes, some of which even have luxury features like vaulted ceilings and kitchens with genuine wood cabinets and stone countertops. However, Cypress Lakes® residents typically spend less for their home purchase than retirees buying site-built homes in comparable resort-style communities. And they get so much more.

A Wealth of Resort-Style Amenities

In addition to our award-winning 36-hole golf course, Cypress Lakes® also boasts a multimillion-dollar clubhouse complex with two swimming pools and heated spas, a banquet hall that seats hundreds of people, and a 5,000-square-foot fitness center that’s staffed with a personal trainer. We also offer outdoor facilities for:

  • Tennis
  • Pickleball
  • Bocce ball
  • Shuffleboard
  • Horseshoes

When you move to Cypress Lakes® and make low monthly home site lease payments, you’ll enjoy access to all of our clubhouse amenities and you’ll be eligible for resident membership in our exceptionally active golf club. Plus, our ideal Lakeland location will put you within easy driving distance of theme parks, beaches, and all the other attractions that have made Florida a good state to retire in for decades.
