Get Behind the Wheel of Your Next Adventure

You hear of people saying that once they retire they plan to sell everything, and take their golden years out on the open road. Sounds like an extreme dream right? Baby boomers make up a big part of the RV, or “mobile real estate” market, particularly the adventuresome snowbird demographic. Being able to go wherever their hearts desire, retirees choosing the RV lifestyle have the freedom to take their homes virtually anywhere, with 55+ RV communities dotted all across the country offering the lifestyle of a traditional neighborhood. Resort style amenities, championship golf, wait we’re talking RV park justify?

Today’s RV’s are a far cry from the campers we took our family vacations in. No longer your dad’s old Winnebago, the options available offer every luxury one would expect in a home with generous square footage, granite countertops, stainless appliances, and even hardwood flooring. Resembling high-end apartment homes, these mobile resorts offer options for king size beds, gourmet style kitchens, and the luxury of having your own washer, and dryer. The beauty of the RV lifestyle is the ability to travel anywhere, and for someone that loves to change up their hometown every now and then, it’s the ideal way to go.

All Dogs Great & Small at Cypress Lakes

A couple making a move to a 55+ community could not take their beloved dog with them due to a strict weight policy on pets. Fortunately, the story has a happy ending with the sweet guy finding him forever home, but nobody should have to make the heartbreaking choice between the love of a pet and living happily ever after. Luckily there’s one age restricted neighborhood that understands the powerful bond between residents and their fur kids, offering a pet-friendly atmosphere no matter the size, along with affordable resort style living.

Cypress Lakes located in Lakeland, Florida welcomes dogs, and their humans, boasting affordable pre-owned manufactured homes, with the option to lease or buy, and vacant sites available for new models. These beautiful homes are crafted in a factory controlled environment to ensure the highest quality, and lasting durability so residents can make memories for years to come. Low maintenance, and spacious with cathedral ceilings, and gourmet style kitchens, Cypress Lakes has changed the way consumers view manufactured homes versus traditional brick, and mortar construction. This welcoming community brings the outdoors in, with options for golf, lakefront, or conservation views that showcase the area’s lush scenery, and Florida’s fantastic year round climate.

Experience the Wonder of Mount Rushmore

The awe-inspiring view of our founding fathers masterfully carved in granite and watching over the nearly three million visitors who pay their respects each year is nothing short of breathtaking. Fourteen years in the making, Mount Rushmore is easily one of the world’s greatest wonders and a magnificent reminder of the great leaders that led us to freedom so long ago. Surrounded by Black Hills National Forest in Keystone, South Dakota this national treasure is an unforgettable sightseeing destination.

Mount Rushmore’s creator Doane Robinson had the vision to display our nation’s presidents in such a way that immortalized their memories forever. From George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson, to Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln, these were the iconic figures who ushered our country through some of our most turbulent moments in history from the Revolutionary War, to authoring the Declaration of Independence. American sculptor Gutzon Borglum was the artist responsible for creating this masterpiece and worked tirelessly on the project until his death in 1941. Gazing up at these great faces of history, and imagining the skill, and man power required to carve through the solid stone mountainside will leave you with a feeling of wonderment.

Whitewater Thrills at Royal Gorge

Adrenaline junkies and thrill-seekers craving a taste of adventure guaranteed to take their breath away will find it on the whitewater terrain of Royal Gorge. It’s time to cross it off the bucket list, and grab a paddle because with names like Sledgehammer, and Boat Eater, these exhilarating rapids are not for the faint of heart. Located an hour from Colorado Springs, and two hours from Denver, this stretch of the Arkansas River is a spectacular destination for outdoor enthusiasts to get friends together and let nature take care of the rest.

Royal Gorge is designed for hardcore whitewater adventurers with class III-V rapids taking them on a wild ride through Colorado’s incredible scenery, with views of the area’s wildlife from the peregrine falcon to the majestic black bear. The gorge sits 1,000 feet below awe-inspiring cliffs, and spans nearly 1,000 feet in width, passing through the historic Royal Gorge Railroad, and Royal Gorge Bridge for 10 miles of sheer excitement. For those preferring a more low key rafting experience, Big Horn Sheep Canyon is ideal for beginners, and families with grade II-III rapids to navigate through passages at a lesser intensity. Whichever rafting immersion one chooses, the spirit of the wild flows through every wave, and around every corner.

Working Beyond Retirement Reaps Big Rewards

The baby boomer generation has work experience down to a science, and a dedication that employers are hard pressed to find these days. For many older adults, the idea of retiring is a far distant notion, and companies are more than happy to keep these loyal, and seasoned veterans on staff to teach their youngsters a thing or two. According to the JP Morgan Chase Institute, the number of boomers working past the age of 65 is on the rise whether it’s out of economic necessity or they just love what they do, and this trend isn’t slowing down anytime soon.

Employees willing to put in the time without counting down to the happy hour are hard to come by. Companies are seeing the value of mature workers, and the dedication, and integrity they’re bringing to the table. Another bonus to hiring empty nesters is they don’t have young kids to shuttle to baseball practice with greater flexibility in their schedules, and a desire to give it their all. These employees have a passion to continue growing in their careers, with a determination to help their companies thrive.
