What New Jersey Residents Should Look for When Touring a 55+ Community in Florida

Many New Jersey residents decide to retire to Florida simply to get out of the snow, but there’s so much more to look for when you’re ready to choose a 55+ community to call home. Cypress Lakes in Lakeland, FL, is an active community for adults 55 and older that’s worth visiting in person before you decide. We offer high-quality manufactured homes in a gated neighborhood setting that includes a 36-hole golf course and an abundance of resort-style amenities. But we don’t stop there.

Unlike many other 55+ communities, we have a full-time activities director on staff. This ensures that our residents never run out of things to do. For example, we offer:

  • Group excursions to local winery, Keel & Curley for wine tasting flights
  • On-site classes, such as “Cooking Class with Paul” and a snake identification class conducted by “Snake Man” Jim Mendenhal
  • Movie nights, featuring recent releases like “12 Strong” and “Darkest Hour”
  • A weekly produce market with fresh fruits and veggies for sale, right at our community clubhouse

What’s more, our beautiful, award-winning golf course offers the perfect setting for events like the Pork Butt Open & Block Party. We’ll be happy to tell you more about the many activities we offer for residents when you tour our community, but in the meantime, check out our newsletter.

Other Things to Look for When You Schedule Your Tour

It’s a good idea to try to picture yourself living in any community you’re thinking of relocating to. At Cypress Lakes, many of the attractive manufactured homes we have for sale are loaded with luxury features, like vaulted ceilings and stone kitchen countertops. Yet they typically cost far less than a similar site-built home in a 55+ community. Then, when you buy one of these homes and make low monthly home site lease payments, you can enjoy the countless social activities made possible by our beautiful clubhouse and other facilities.

At Cypress Lakes, we take pride in making an active Florida lifestyle affordable for many older adults, even on a retirement budget. Contact us today to schedule your tour of our beautiful community the next time you’re visiting Florida from New Jersey.
