The "Sunshine State" is by far the most popular destination for retirees in America. Blessed with a warm climate and an almost dizzying number of recreational choices, Florida attracts so many seniors (and other new residents) that it is consistently one of the fastest-growing states in the U.S. As recently as 2005, one Florida county (Flagler) had the highest growth rate in the country, and 14 made the list of the hundred fastest-growing counties.

It's not hard to understand the appeal Florida has on newcomers: an extensive and varied coastline featuring wide, sandy beaches, mangrove swamps, and the famous Keys. With a tropical/subtropical climate that encourages gardening, sun-worship, and year-round golf, Florida is filled with exciting urban areas such as Miami, Tampa, and Orlando. Historical sites like St. Augustine and Cape Canaveral are intriguing aside a surprising amount of quiet, purely rural countryside in the central and northern parts of the state.

The famous Everglades in the south, numerous theme parks and sports and extensive parks and preserves featuring boating, fishing, and aquatic activity, have all helped transform Florida from a sleepy Southern backwater to a booming state in little more than a century.
