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.

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.

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.

You want to live someplace where your money is worth more, and luckily Florida has a very low cost of living.
