A Guide to 55+ Active Living Communities in Florida

 

Beaches & Balmy Weather Await in Florida’s Active Adult Communities

Florida has a well-earned reputation as the retirement capital of the USA, and for many good reasons!

Florida is said to be in a state of perpetual summer, with mild winters, no snow and temperatures rarely falling below freezing overnight. Daytime winter temperatures are often in the 70’s which is a huge draw for 55+ active adults from the northern states or Canada looking for a place to retire. Seniors residents can maintain a year round active lifestyle playing golf, pickleball, hiking, and shopping, rarely needing more than light sweater.

The state receives enough rainfall to avoid the more desert-like conditions of other sunny states such as Arizona or New Mexico. Beaches coexist alongside wetlands in a warm, subtropical climate perfect for maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle in retirement.

Florida features master planned 55+ communities with new single story homes that are low- or even no-maintenance. Housing options for 55+ adults in Florida include waterfront communities, golf course communities, luxury apartment rentals, manufactured home communities, and condos.

The state has one of the largest 55+ demographics in the country. It  attracts empty nesters interested in downsizing and spending their days in the sun near the beach or on the golf course. Florida offers retirees a fairly conservative yet welcoming and open-minded political landscape as many seniors spent much of their working years in other parts of the country.

Should you want to go on vacation from your retirement home in Florida, know that it’s one of the most convenient states for international travel with multiple airport hubs in cities like Orlando, Miami, Tampa, and Jacksonville!

Florida’s Northeast region includes the classy seaside town of Ponte Vedra, which has many luxury amenities like rec centers, golf courses, and spas. Within Ponte Vedra lies the planned residential community of Nocatee, which, along with a town square, has a variety of active older adult lving options. Some of these includes The Atwater at Nocatee.

Northwest Florida

On the other side of Florida lies the Northwest Florida region, which encompasses the Florida panhandle and borders the Gulf of Mexico. Popular retirement areas such as Pensacola and Destin dot the stretch of land headed west along I-10.

This area of Florida is home to the Blue Angels. There’s a rich diversity of cultures that comes from being near the prestigious Naval Air Station Pensacola. It’s a popular spot for veterans to retire because 55+ residents can spend their time enjoying the sunny weather at the beach, biking around town, or sailing the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. .

Southeast Florida

Southeast Florida consists of the lower half of the peninsula along the Atlantic coast. The region includes  many prestigious cities and neighborhoods like Palm Beach and Hollywood. It’s also home to entertainment hotspots like Miami.

Senior residents of areas like Parkland, Port St. Lucie, and Boynton Beach are never far from the beach, and the beautiful Everglades National Park.

Central West Florida

Some of Florida’s most popular inland areas for retirees are located in Central West Florida.

Towns such as Ocala, Bushnell, and San Antonio offer residents a rural, suburban feel. Cities like Tampa offer a more urban vibe for 55+ active adults with concerts, sporting events, shopping and many exceptional dining options.

The Best Indoor and Outdoor Things to Do in Florida

Whether your dream retirement involves soaking up the sun near the pool or going on unforgettable nature walks through Florida’s diverse wildlife habitats, you’re sure to find plenty of exciting opportunities to stay active when you decide to retire in Florida!

On-Property Activities to Enjoy in Your Community

Since much of Florida is designed with retirees in mind, many 55+ residences feature single story floor plans, making them accessible to people with disabilities, those with stiff joints or just for practicality as seniors age with grace.

Additionally, Florida’s retirement communities are especially well-equipped to support an active lifestyle, from the prevalence of exercise equipment and walking trails to the many golf courses with golf cart-friendly flat roads.

Community amenities often include a fenced in dog park and dog grooming station. Some locations offer community gardens, where you can plant and harvest fruits and vegetables well-suited to Florida’s sunny climate.

Swimming in a community pool is an excellent form of exercise, especially in Florida, where it’s almost always warm enough to swim. Pool exercises have been proven to be easy on the joints, and some locations even offer water aerobics classes specially designed for those 55 and up!

Many of Florida’s pools on private property are screened to keep the bugs at bay, though community pools may instead have other features like a snack bar and lifeguard on duty.

Spend the Afternoon at the Community Center/Clubhouse

Communities in Florida have their own clubhouses and community centers, which offer an abundance of ways to get active while also socializing with other residents.

Join an interest group like a book club or an arts and crafts club, or stay fit at the tennis and pickleball courts, putting green and well-equipped fitness center.

Live a Low-Maintenance Lifestyle

Florida’s year round warm weather means even in winter, you’ll never have to shovel snow! Many 55+ communities offer lawn care so residents can spend their afternoons playing golf or riding through their communities in their golf-carts rather than doing yard work.

However, if you’re interested in gardening, Florida receives a fair amount of rain making it the perfect environment to grow low-maintenance native flowers and shrubbery.

Homeowners Associations typically cover all community needs outside the units, making for a truly low-maintenance lifestyle!

 

Cost of Living in Florida

Florida is a very affordable retirement location, with no state tax and gas and food costs falling below the national average in most locations!

While cities like Miami and Tampa feature a slightly higher cost of living, you can still find budget-friendly places to retire in suburbs nearby, with costs falling significantly in more residential zones and 55+ retirement communities just outside of town.

Many communities offer reasonably priced, waterfront property. The state has a high diversity of housing available to suit different budgets affording seniors of all types an opportunity to retire in the state!
