Jacksonville is a Great Place to Retire

Posted on by Lisa Barton

Northeast Florida was founded on a misguided quest to find the Fountain of Youth. Even though Juan Ponce de León never found exactly what he was looking for – he did discover one of the most beautiful areas in the country, an area that many retirees flock to in order to relax and rediscover their youth. Here are six of the many reasons why people love retiring in Northeast Florida, aside from the beautiful weather and the abundance of sunshine.

6. Northeast Florida is a Vacation Destination

Thankfully there are many airports in the area, both domestic and international, so that your friends and family can visit at any time. There are so many things to do in Florida, which makes it a popular travel spot – especially if there is family to stay with. During the cold and snowy months back in other parts of the country, expect lots of visitors.

5. An Active Adult Community

If you’re looking to settle down in an Active Adult Community, Northeast Florida has a range of options for every taste and every budget. After managing your own home for so many years, it’s relaxing to live in a social community that is managed by others, and has all the amenities and services you would need to live a comfortable and happy life.

4. The Healthcare Options in Northeast Florida are Vast

Thanks to many other retirees moving to the area, most health services are geared towards that age group. Having top-notch health care providers available all over Northeast Florida, there’s a sense of safety and reassurance that you don’t get everywhere in the country.

3. No Income Tax

In all of Florida, there is no estate tax, no state income tax, and no inheritance tax. This is important, especially if you’re on a fixed income. You want to live someplace where your money is worth more, and luckily Florida has a very low cost of living. It pays to be able to save for more important things, like traveling and visiting family.
