Tampa Bay - 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.

The Tampa Bay area is one of the most dynamic, vibrant—and popular—areas in Florida. From its beginnings as an army post in the Seminole wars, Tampa boomed with the arrival of the railroad, and has been booming in one way or another since. Its port is still busy, but now the city is a mature financial and cultural center as well, boasting amenities that would do much larger cities proud. St. Petersburgh, on the other side of Tampa Bay, provides the southern anchor for a string of beaches that are among the most thronged in Florida. This area also remains one of the most popular areas for retirees, with developments in nearly all of the large and small communities.
