Retirement, often referred to as the “golden years,” is a significant life transition that most people look forward to and 5 Florida cities have made a list of best places to retire.
Retirement marks the end of a long and fulfilling career and the beginning of a new chapter in life. When my parents retired a few years back, all they wanted to do was get out of Illinois and get to warm weather. They’re finally moving to SWFL to Fort Myers next month. When I asked them how they plan to fill their days, my dad responded with “not working!” I’m sure that’s the highlight for those ready to wrap up 50+ years of toiling away. Retirement offers the promise of relaxation and leisure and while some don’t mind the weather or don’t want a big move, often times, it’s an escape to paradise that retirees crave. I see people out on the beach all the time and dream about what it would be like to have only THAT to do on the daily. Ahhh..one day.
