Attention, Illinois Residents! All the Things You Want to Do in Retirement Are Waiting for You in Central Florida

If you’re an Illinois resident who’s planning to relocate for retirement or enjoy a second home somewhere away from the Snowbelt, you’ll want to think about whether your second chapter will include everything you’ve been wanting to do when you’re no longer on the clock. If fishing, boating, lounging on the beach, playing golf, and enjoying practically unlimited sightseeing opportunities are on your list of things to do in retirement, Central Florida has to be at the top of your list of retirement destinations to explore.

All of those activities, plus the favorable weather to do them in, have made the Orlando area a top choice for retirees from Illinois for many years. It may surprise you to learn that personal finance websites like have also listed this part of the Sunshine State as its top pick for retirees because of its affordability. The absence of a state income tax and the availability of first-class healthcare facilities are among the factors that propel this Central Florida city to the top of many listings for preferred retirement destinations.

Hyde Park Makes a Desirable Retirement Even More Affordable

Although Orlando is one of the more affordable places to retire, it’s also true that many people nearing retirement age worry that their nest egg won’t cover their expenses if they leave their jobs or cut back on their work hours.

However, many former Illinois residents have found the ideal solution – and a wonderful place to call home – at Hyde Park.
