Best Places to Live in Florida for Retirees from Michigan

Attention, Michigan Residents! Orlando Tops the List of Best Places to Live in Florida for Retirees; Hyde Park Makes It Affordable

Water sports and relaxing on the beach are popular summertime activities for Michigan residents vacationing in their home state, so there’s little wonder that so many people from the Great Lakes State dream of doing those things year round in retirement. And where better to retire than Florida, where an abundance of lakes and balmy weather plus the absence of snow make it possible to enjoy aquatic activities almost any time you want?

What may surprise you, though, is how often some of the top tourist destinations in Florida also show up on lists of the best places to live for retirees. For example, Orlando has landed on many such lists year after year. Recently, the theme park mecca was selected by the personal finance site WalletHub as the best place in the nation for mature adults to live. Some of the many factors that were evaluated for the report included:

  • Access to top-quality health care
  • Cost of living/lack of state income tax
  • Abundance of recreational activities
  • General quality of life

Unfortunately, the report also notes the high number of Americans who worry that their life savings won’t stretch far enough to allow them to retire. If that sounds like you, don’t despair. Hyde Park has made it possible for retirees from Michigan and other parts of the United States to enjoy an affordable active lifestyle in one of the best places to live in Florida.

An Enviable Central Florida Location

Hyde Park is a beautifully landscaped, gated 55+ community of well-maintained manufactured homes located just outside the hustle and bustle of Orlando, with its world-renowned theme parks and other entertainment venues. If you’re a nature lover, you’ll enjoy plenty of hiking trails and freshwater boating and fishing opportunities in the immediate vicinity, plus convenient access to beautiful oceanfront beaches and saltwater fishing charters that lie only about an hour’s drive away.

Not only that, but you’ll feel right at home when you join other Hyde Park residents who hail from Michigan for card games, bingo, shuffleboard, a dip in the pool, or a neighborhood block party at the spacious community clubhouse.

In short, you’ll enjoy resort-style living inside and outside our gates, and you’ll be surprised at how affordable this enviable active lifestyle can be.
