There’s a reason people want to retire to Florida. Our warm year-round temperatures make it easy to get around, even in the depths of winter. Cities like Orlando, Tampa, DeLand and Bradenton offer a reasonable cost of living compared to other major East Coast cities and their surrounding regions. And we offer ample boating, golfing, dining, shopping, arts & culture and other recreational activities that are ideal for seniors.

Our state is also home to more than 300 55-plus residential communities as well as exceptional medical care. It’s easy to find the optimal senior living situation for yourself or your family in any major metropolitan area in the state or in the quieter coastal and inland towns.

In addition to varying by location, each senior community offers its own distinctive atmosphere and collection of amenities. Choose from places with indoor or outdoor pools, tennis courts and golf courses, fitness centers, arts and crafts instruction, lake access and community transit options. All enhance quality of life once you or your relatives decide to slow down and leave the workaday world. Plus, you know that with so many others retiring to Florida, you are sure to find plenty of friends and peers who share your interests, values and stage of life.
