Lower Gulf Coast - Florida Active Adult Retirement Communities

Active Retirement Communities and 55+ Communities are active retirement communities and developments that are specifically for active adult retirement living. These types of communities really offer anything and everything for an active retirement lifestyle. You can find golf courses, swimming pools, tennis courts, shuffleboard and everything else you can think of in a gated retirement resort type environment. That being said, many adult communities also offer a quiet more reserved type living for those residents that appreciate a slower pace lifestyle. Almost all have community centers or clubhouses that feature many community activities. Almost all allow small pets. About the only thing you don’t find in 55+ communities are a lot of children, which can visit but cannot reside in most communities.

Florida's Lower Gulf Coast is a series of layers: on the outside, a string of barrier islands with popular beaches; next, a series of communities anchored by Sarasota in the north and Naples in the south; and finally, virtually empty rural areas.
