Is Orlando, Florida, a Good Place to Retire?

Orlando has long claimed a spot in the Top 100 cities for retirees listed annually by consumer websites, but the city has slipped a few notches in recent years. The primary reason cited for this is the growing scarcity of affordable housing, and that’s likely to be of concern to older adults who are focused on stretching their retirement savings as far as possible.

Fortunately, there’s an affordable community for active adults 55 and older that’s located just outside the bustling Orlando area: Hyde Park. We offer a gated community of attractive manufactured homes in an appealing neighborhood setting that’s anchored by a clubhouse, swimming pool, and fitness center. These manufactured homes offer all the comforts of site-built homes in similar resort-style communities but typically cost far less. This means our residents can devote more of their resources to enjoying the active Florida lifestyle they’ve been looking forward to when they retire.

What to Look for When Choosing a Place to Retire

If you’re on the hunt for a place to call home when you retire, you’ll want to consider the activities you’ll be able to enjoy right in your own backyard. When you purchase a home in Hyde Park and make low monthly home site lease payments, you’ll be able to enjoy daily access to our clubhouse complex and all the group activities that occur there. Some of these activities include:

  • Wine-and-paint parties – grab some Cabernet and become the next Claude Monet (or Picasso, whatever strikes your fancy!)
  • Theater club – if you’ve always dreamt of having the spotlight hit you for your shining moment on stage, the time has come.
  • Cooking classes – Julia Childs won’t have anything on you – learn the art of French cooking or even just how to grill the perfect chicken wings.

What’s more, many of our residents enjoy group outings to a charming downtown area with dining and entertainment venues, which they can access by golf cart without ever having to set foot in their cars. Then, when you feel like driving, you can easily navigate to nearby Orlando, where theme parks and other attractions await you.
