Some people are at that stage in life where they can move anywhere and build their next house in practically any state. Florida is one of the top states where baby boomers are building their homes. Here are a few reasons why it is a top destination to plant roots:
- Retirement. Even if you are not ready to retire, chances are that you are planning that phase of your life. Many Americans make Florida their place to retire. Since there is an abundance of people 55+, it makes for the perfect social scene for retirees. In southwest Florida, you can find many groups that are over the age of 50 that frequently get together. Florida is a great place for older Americans to socialize and make new friends.
- Better climate. In Florida, you will not have to deal with the cold temperatures of the northern states. As we age, mobility is a bit more difficult. Eliminating walking and driving in the slippery, cold snow is an advantage to living in Florida. With some exceptions, you are guaranteed sunny days down here.
- It’s the perfect location. Since Florida is a peninsula, you can head in any direction (aside from North) and find a beach. Within hours you can be beachside, which is desirable. The state capital is in the north, the vibrant cities of Miami and Key West are in the south, and you have many popular cities up and down the east and west coast. The beautiful sunsets over the Gulf in southwest Florida is a sight you will not tire of seeing.
- Fun things to do. There are many activities in Florida to experience. The majority happen to include the waterways, the Gulf, and the Atlantic Ocean. Activities such as snorkeling, kite boarding, boating, fishing, parasailing, walking trails, bike trails, and skiing are all popular. The National Park of the Everglades is an attraction for many homeowners. The beauty and serenity of the park can be seen through guided airboat tours.
