Retiring? How to Choose Among the Many Resort Lifestyle Communities in Central Florida

Luxury patio seating area overlooking an outdoor pool and golf course You’ve worked hard for decades, and now it’s time to take it easy—but not too easy—at a retirement community in Central Florida. You’ve zeroed in on this location because it offers year-round opportunities to hit the beach, play golf, or go sightseeing, fishing, or boating. It also boasts many resort lifestyle communities catering to the 55-and-older set—so many that you may feel overwhelmed as you search for the perfect place to spend your retirement.

But don’t be discouraged! Instead, develop a checklist of your personal priorities for retirement living and use it to gauge the merits of any active adult community you’re considering. Here are some suggestions for what to include:


It’s hard to go wrong anywhere in Central Florida, but some cities might offer more of the retirement activities you’ve been dreaming of than others. For example, are you a diehard sports fan? As home to a plethora of professional sports teams, Tampa might be your ideal location. Would you like to spend time at the beach every day? Then explore the resort lifestyle communities in the Daytona Beach area.


If you’re like many seniors these days, you’re concerned about stretching your retirement savings to the max. Blair Group is a developer of five resort lifestyle communities for adults 55 and older in Central Florida, all of which feature well-maintained manufactured housing in a professionally managed setting with lots of on-site amenities. Manufactured homes typically cost far less than their site-built counterparts, so you’ll be able to devote more of your resources to pursuing the resort lifestyle you’ve been pining for.

A True Resort Lifestyle

Many 55+ communities claim to cater to retirees, but they don’t all offer the same level of on-site resort-style amenities, such as one or more swimming pools, clubhouses, and tennis and pickleball courts. You’ll want to evaluate any community you’re considering to determine whether it truly offers the type of resort lifestyle you’re imagining.
