Attention, Illinois Retirees! Hyde Park Offers an Affordable Active Lifestyle in One of the Best Cities to Retire in Florida

Are you an Illinois resident who’s nearing retirement age and dreaming of trading your winter parka and snow boots for a swimsuit and sandals? If so, you’re hardly alone. For generations, older adults from the Snowbelt have chosen to retire to Florida to enjoy the balmy year-round weather. However, you’re also not alone if you’re worried that you won’t be able to afford that Florida retirement you’ve been pining for. Many older adults worry that their life savings won’t stretch far enough to cover the active retirement lifestyle they’ve had in mind.

Fortunately, Florida is one of the most affordable places to retire in the nation, thanks to its lack of a state income tax and relatively low cost of living. These factors cause the Sunshine State to rank high on publicized lists of great places to retire year after year, and the Orlando area routinely shows up as one of the best cities to retire to in Florida.

Where to Find an Affordable Active Lifestyle

You might think that the Orlando area, with its central location and abundance of tourist attractions, would be an expensive place to live. However, many former Illinois residents have already discovered an affordable lifestyle community for active adults 55 and older that’s on the outskirts of Orlando. It’s Hyde Park, a gated community of high-caliber manufactured homes and resort-style amenities that include:

  • A spacious clubhouse with a banquet hall and game rooms
  • A well-equipped fitness center
  • A large pool and hot tub
  • Shuffleboard courts

Not only that, but Hyde Park residents can also travel by golf cart to a charming downtown district that includes a wide variety of shops and restaurants, as well as museums and live entertainment venues.

When you buy one of the well-maintained manufactured homes at Hyde Park and make low monthly home site lease payments, you’ll enjoy access to all of those amenities. What’s more, all the exciting theme parks and attractions of Central Florida’s most popular tourist destination are only a few minutes away by car.
