Reasons To Retire to Florida

Not only does the Sunshine State top lists including “Best Beaches,” “Best Vacation Destination” and top charts for some of the finest real estate in the nation it is ranked as one of the “Best States to Retire In.”

Ranked as the 7th best state to retire to by TopRetirements.com, and with several of its cities named as the “Best Cities to Retire To” by the famed Market Watch Report, Florida has a long list of qualities that verify why its topping charts across the board. 

A popular reason it places high on these lists is that Florida has no income tax and there is property tax protection for its full-time residents. Acclaimed by MarketWatch.com, “Florida has dozens and dozens of nice towns and cities.” In the United States, south Florida has some of the warmest temperatures during the winter. All winter long, Floridians are hitting the beach; boat and water with the exception of a couple days when it may be too cold, the majority are warm and sunny. Great weather is a year-round feature of south Florida, but the perks just keep coming. Many of the communities are just steps from the beaches and Atlantic Ocean. There are neighborhoods that border the miles of traversable waterways including the Loxahatchee Riverfront. If boating, sun and sand are your top choices south Florida has you covered. However, maybe you would like to be in a country club community that is not so focused on the water. Golfing is prime in Palm Beach County. In fact, Travel and Leisure Magazine has dubbed it the “Golfing Capital of Florida.” Some of the nation’s finest golf courses and golf course real estate can be found in this fabulous state.
