Narrowing the List of Central Florida Active Adult Communities That You Might Call Home
As more and more baby boomers and even Generation Xers are retiring and looking for their perfect place in the sun, more active adult communities keep springing up to accommodate them. Nowhere is this truer than in Central Florida, which has long been a hot spot for retirees who want to enjoy an active lifestyle with plenty to see and do all year long. What has changed is that many more prospective retirees are worried about whether their retirement savings will stretch far enough to allow them to enjoy an active adult community lifestyle. If you’re among those retirees, affordability should be a key factor to keep in mind as you evaluate the active adult communities you might choose to call home.
There are many other criteria to keep in mind as you weigh the pros and cons of relocating to Central Florida for your retirement. For example, do you want to live in an active adult community, also known as a 55+ community? There are many benefits to the lifestyle this type of community offers. Typically, a 55+ community has a clubhouse and resort-style amenities that help older adults stay physically active and socially engaged with their peers. However, not all such communities are the same, so you’ll want to visit any that you’re considering in person before you make a decision.
Location, Location, Location
Although almost anywhere in Central Florida offers plenty of opportunities for sightseeing, boating, fishing, golfing, and simply soaking up the sunshine, some active adult communities will be better situated than others near the things you like to do most. At Hyde Park in Winter Garden, for example, a big draw for community residents is the charming downtown district that so masterfully blends old-time Florida with trendy shops, live entertainment, and a wide array of eateries offering traditional and ethnic cuisines. This attraction is easily accessible for Hyde Park residents by golf cart—so they never even have to get in their car. What’s more, this active adult community occupies an enviable location outside of Orlando, which provides a never-ending list of entertainment opportunities.
Hyde Park also makes an active Central Florida lifestyle affordable by offering high-quality manufactured homes for sale in a pleasant neighborhood setting that includes many resort-style amenities.
