Retirement communities in Florida are very popular with older active adults. Florida has proven itself to have a lot of allure and over the past few decades it has become, in many ways, the premiere US destination for today’s seniors – especially those who want to continue to have an active life both physically and socially after they retire. Florida has beaten out other leading retirement destinations such as Arizona as the biggest hotspot, and attracts millions of seniors for either seasonal or long-term residency. And Lake Ashton leads the pack as one of the most well-loved retirement communities in Florida. What makes Florida, and Lake Ashton, stand apart?
One of the biggest draws of Florida retirement communities like Lake Ashton is of course the climate. Everyone knows that Florida has warm, balmy winters that are hard to find anywhere else. Even in the summertime Florida enjoys refreshing breezes off the Gulf and the Atlantic Ocean which help keep the climate mild all year round. Occasional rainy days are relatively rare and that means you can spend a lot of time outside no matter what kinds of activities you enjoy.
And Lake Ashton does offer activities. One of the things that sets it apart from other retirement communities in Florida is its beautiful locale and natural beauty. Lake Ashton is situated on a pristine spring-fed lake where boating and fishing are idyllic. Fishing is plentiful with a wide variety of fish and great weather for taking your time and enjoying the experience. Lake Ashton is also a short drive to the ocean which makes for great day trips, and within striking distance of a weekend in one of the big cities or theme parks – but it is tucked away enough that you can expect quiet days and nights any time you want them.
Lake Ashton also boasts more amenities and better facilities than most retirement communities in Florida. The two 18-hole golf courses are among the most popular features, with a clubhouse, sports pub and pro shop. The community also has its own health and fitness center, and a media center with computers and internet. Add to this great dining and regular social activities and events and you have a recipe for a blissful and fulfilling retirement.
There is a reason Florida has so much draw for older adults, but not everywhere in Florida is created equal. If you want to enjoy a thriving social life in a beautiful setting in your retirement years, Lake Ashton is simply one of the best retirement communities in Florida.
