Florida, the Sunshine State, is one of the fastest growing states in the country for good reason. It’s a wonderful place to live. Tampa provides a place where retirees can golf year round, enjoy beaches and sunny weather almost all year round. But there’s more to do in Tampa than merely golf.
Retirees often aren’t ready to simply drop everything and live a life of pure leisure, even if they can afford to. Tampa offers plenty of cultural volunteer or part-time work opportunities sure to satisfy the hearts of retirees. One Tampa retiree now sits on the board of a popular theater. Another is the consultant to a museum. Tampa’s thriving arts and culture scene offers plenty of options to sustain retirees like them.
With a percentage of health-care workers per capita well above the national average, Tampa is well prepared to deal with elderly residents.
Finally, there are some first class retirement communities in the Tampa Bay area. One is Imperial Cove, a gated, no pets allowed adult community with a waterfront golf course, fishing piers and gardens. Bellevue at Grand Hampton is a luxury community in Tampa that sits right next to a nature preserve. Cascades at Southern Hills is a retirement community close to Tampa, in the community of Brooksville, Fl. Cascades offers independent living, golf and a large variety of home styles. Also in Brooksville is Four Seasons at Crystal Springs, an age restricted community.
These are but a tiny sample of the variety of retirement real estate available in the Tampa area.
