Recent data reflects that almost 21% of Florida is made up of people 65 years or older. Clearly, there are a lot of people that see purpose in Florida’s opportunities for relaxation and stimulation in this stage of life. The state has attracted seniors for decades, but now more than ever, people are considering calling Florida home as retirement becomes reality.
Florida Real Estate Attracts Buyers From All Over for Several Reasons
Coastline, Sunshine, and Beaches
Florida has an average of 230 days of sunshine per year and about 1,350 miles of coastline from the Gulf Coast to the Atlantic Ocean – the most coastline on the mainland of the United States. Such a combination calls for plenty of beautiful beach days in the spring and summer!
Florida’s best beaches have soft white sand and subtle breezes, and they are accompanied by cute beach towns for the whole family to enjoy when they come to visit. Depending on your preference some beaches are favored for their quiet communities while others are flocked to for being more active and engaging.
One of the most obvious advantages of Florida’s climate reveals itself when everywhere else in the country begins to bundle up. Winters are mild so that retirees can still enjoy the outdoors year-round!
Florida is very tax-friendly for retirees. There is no state income tax here, and the state also does not tax retirement income or Social Security benefits. There are also no estate or inheritance taxes. Property taxes are known to be reasonable, and all these breaks combined make Florida a financially attractive state to retire in!
When retiring in Florida, you can count on there never being a shortage of ways to stay active. The general climate of the state allows anyone of any fitness level to take advantage of walking, hiking, swimming, surfing, fishing and biking nearly year-round.
Florida has national parks that cannot be missed if you move to the state. Seniors can stay active by visiting the tropical marshlands of the Everglades, the hiking trails at Big Cypress National Park, the Silver Springs State Parks, and the many world-renowned golf courses across the state.
The benefits of staying active in this period of life can help reduce the occurrence of serious health conditions, reduce feelings of loneliness, improve mental health, and instill new and better relationships!
Plenty To Do
Whether you are looking for ways to keep yourself young or seeking activities with a slower pace, Florida has a little bit of everything! Most destinations are drive-able, so impromptu day trips can always be an option.
Cities of interest include Orlando for when the younger family members want to visit Disney World or Universal Studios, Tampa for its cultural attractions, Fort Lauderdale for its upscale shopping and hospitality, Clearwater for its infamous aquarium, and Delray Beach for its local feel.
