To me, retirement seemed to be a fable. It just wasn’t realistic in today’s economic climate nor had my life’s savings endured the turmoil of the past 7 years failing economy.
I had lost it all. At 65, retirement seemed an unrealistic expectation. But, then I discovered Sun City Center and for the first time I began to see some hope. Within the boundaries of Sun City Center’s 12.8 sq miles are an oasis of retirement housing options that should fit most anyone’s life style and budget.
Sun City Center, Florida, according to Village Profile.com, actually contains 6 beautiful individual 55 plus housing communities. These retirement communities are situated along small ponds and lakes and often feature heavy tree lined streets featuring palms and old oaks. For the most part you’ll find one and two story single-family homes, duplexes, and villa town homes with prices that start at a mere $20,000 to $700,000 or more.
If, like me, you find yourself in the 55+ years, then you can find a broad spectrum of senior housing opportunities. From simple flats to luxurious single family homes situated on golf course or surrounded by water. You’ll also find rentals, independent living and assisted living accommodations.
SunTowers and FreedomPlaza have assisted care and nursing home facilities that provide 24/7 year round quality care. For those seeking rental properties, the Courtyards and Ashton Gardens consist of beautiful quarters that celebrate senior independent living.
All these facilities share common post office, shopping, hospitals, professional services, banks and worship facilities. While, these amenities are shared throughout Sun City Center, you’ll find that most retirement communities have their own activities, trips, outings, clubs, civic organizations and programs.
According to numerous sources, Sun City Center, Florida is considered to be America’s Premier 55 and older retirement community. So, if you’re thinking of kicking your legs up and taking life easy…..then, you might want to consider Sun City Center. Whether you’re looking for an energetic tennis match, matching wits over a game of cards, learning a new skill such as water color, oil painting, or joining in the fun in over 100’s of clubs…Sun CityCenter is a fun, activity filled place where the days fly by and retirement is an unexpected treasure.
