Are Retirement Villages the Best Choice for All Retirees Headed to Florida?
Sunny Florida has long been a magnet for retirees, and some land developers have capitalized on the older adult’s desire for sun and fun to create huge retirement villages that cater to seniors. These villages are appealing because they typically offer:
- Professionally designed and well-maintained golf courses
- The ability to travel throughout the retirement village by golf cart, a potential cost savings on gas and car maintenance
- Resort-style amenities that are likely to include swimming pools, tennis courts, a multipurpose clubhouse, and a fitness center
- Easy access to services, group activities, and entertainment without leaving the community
However, what’s less appealing to many people on a retirement budget is the high price tag that often comes with the site-built homes that you’re likely to find in a retirement village. That’s why, if you’re looking for a community to call home during your retirement, you should consider Cypress Lakes® in Lakeland, FL. Our gated community of high-quality manufactured homes for active adults 55 and older offers all of the benefits listed above. But retiring to Cypress Lakes® is likely to cost less than settling in one of the state’s sprawling retirement villages of site-built homes.
Amenities, Activities, and Services Galore
At Cypress Lakes®, our manufactured homes are attractive and arranged in a lovely neighborhood setting surrounded by stately cypress trees and oaks. We offer two 18-hole golf courses, plus a multimillion-dollar clubhouse complex complete with a full-service restaurant and numerous resort-style amenities. This complex not only serves as a hub for internally organized activities but also as a staging ground for many visiting services and entertainment opportunities, including:
- A mobile veterinary clinic
- Farmers market
- Cooking and gardening instructors
- Recently released movies
- Guest performers
All of these features are available to our residents without leaving Cypress Lakes® – they can walk or travel by golf cart to enjoy a meal with friends, relax by the pool, or take advantage of our visiting service providers. Plus, when you relocate to our community, a short drive will take you to theme parks and other popular Florida attractions.
In short, Cypress Lakes® offers all the same advantages you’d find at typical Florida retirement villages for a more affordable price. Contact our Lifestyle Team today for more information and to schedule a community tour so you can see firsthand everything we have to offer.
