There is a plethora of reasons to uproot from your current neighborhood and move into a 55+ neighborhood. Maybe you want a simpler lifestyle. Maybe you want to get away from the hustle & bustle of your up and coming neighborhood. Maybe you just want to be around like-minded folks. The choice for Floridians moving into 55+ neighborhoods is skyrocketing.

Most Floridians have thought about the move as an eventual step, but what exactly can you expect from an active adult community?

Active Lifestyle

Many 55+ communities are referred to as “active adult communities” for a reason—there is never a dull moment. There is always something to do. Many communities have outdoor activities such as shuffle board, tennis courts, fitness centers, swimming pools, etc. Some communities will have healthy lifestyle classes such as yoga instructors, fitness trainers and others that visit the community frequently.

A Like-Minded Community

Many people of the same age, demographic, or lifestyle often are of a like-mind. Many Floridians find it beneficial to be engulfed with like-minded people within their tightly knit communities. You’ll be sharing amenities, surroundings and the entire community with your neighbors, after all. Many baby boomers find this aspect of community living comforting.

Community Amenities

I’ve already listed several amenities that some Florida 55+ communities have, but that doesn’t even scratch the surface. Many have nightly events such as game nights, potlucks, movie nights, etc. In addition to these events there are a plethora of other amenities that maximize the overall quality of life within 55+ communities.
