For the most part, gone are the days of using the phrase “retirement community”. While Florida may still be a very popular retirement spot for those looking to enjoy the year-round sunshine and tropical weather, it’s quickly becoming a favorite for active adults, so the term “active adult community” is better suited for what we’re talking about.
Active adults are typically considered those aged 55 and over, who may still actually work part- or full-time and live a very independent lifestyle. A community geared towards active adults simply realizes that these residents are most likely at the same stage of life and share similar interests when it comes to leisure time, while looking for relatively maintenance-free living.
There are many active adult communities around Orlando, and we’re highlighting a few you may want to tell your parents about (or bookmark for yourself for now or later!).
