Lake Griffin Is One of the Best Lakes to Live on Year-Round in Retirement

If you were to compile a list of the best lakes to live on year-round in retirement, Lake Griffin would easily claim one of the top spots. This splendid 9,400-acre lake in Central Florida is chock full of bass and other freshwater fish, making it a prime destination for any retirees who plan to make “gone fishing” their motto on as many days as possible. What’s more, Lake Griffin is part of the extensive Harris Chain of Lakes, which means people lucky enough to live on Lake Griffin can navigate by boat or canoe to other sparkling waterways, thus enjoying a never-ending variety of aquatic adventures. And, because Central Florida weather is typically mild and free of snow and ice, even in the wintertime, Lake Griffin is a watery paradise that’s open for visitors just about any time of year.
