Are You an Indiana Resident Checking Out Retirement Communities in Florida? Make Sure Hyde Park Is on Your List

If you’re like many Indiana residents nearing retirement, you’ve been dreaming of spending your golden years in the land of sunshine, beautiful beaches, and world-renowned theme parks – in other words, Florida. But where do you begin when it’s time to start evaluating retirement communities?

It’s a good idea to develop a checklist of criteria you consider important and use it to narrow the list of retirement communities you plan to visit in person before you make your selection. Here are a few suggestions:


Although there are retirement communities scattered throughout Florida, some of the best choices are located in the central part of the state. A community like Hyde Park near Orlando offers convenient access to world-class medical facilities, public universities with continuing education classes for seniors, an international airport, and a virtually unlimited inventory of sightseeing opportunities.

Active Lifestyle

If you plan to pursue an active lifestyle during your retirement, you’ll want to look for a 55+ community that has the kind of resort-style amenities to keep you busy and help you enjoy the company of neighbors. Hyde Park has a bevy of such amenities, including a large clubhouse and swimming pool, fitness center, games rooms, and shuffleboard courts. What’s more, there’s a golf cart path that will take you straight to a charming downtown district of shops, eateries, and entertainment venues with no need to set foot in your car.


One of the most important things to consider about all the retirement communities you’re exploring is whether you can afford to live there. At Hyde Park, we make an active Florida lifestyle affordable by offering attractive manufactured homes for sale in a gated neighborhood setting for adults 55 and older. Then, when residents make low monthly home site lease payments, they can enjoy daily use of the clubhouse, pool, and other amenities.

At Hyde Park, we take pride in the fact that our community scores highly on just about any checklist for desirable retirement communities you could devise. Are you ready to see for yourself?
