Year-Round Fishing & Boating Put Lake Griffin Harbor at the Top of the List of Great Places to Retire for Illinois Residents

If you hail from Illinois and you like fishing, boating, or other water sports, you’ve undoubtedly spent some time on the Great Lakes. And those lakes are some of the most beautiful waterways in the world. But there are many months of the year when it would be uncomfortable, if not impossible, to enjoy water sports there due to snow and freezing temperatures. If waterfront living and year-round boating are part of your definition of great places to retire, then you’ll want to take a close look at Lake Griffin Harbor.

Make the Most of Your Retirement Savings

Lake Griffin Harbor in Leesburg is one of the great places to retire in Florida because of its enviable location on the shores of 9,400-acre Lake Griffin, which is part of a chain of lakes that boasts some of the best bass fishing anywhere. It’s also a great place to retire because it’s affordable. We make life by the water possible for many adults 55 and older on a budget by offering high-quality manufactured homes in a gated community setting with plenty of resort-style amenities. Here are only a few of them:

  • A spacious clubhouse and observation deck overlooking the lake
  • A boat launch and fishing pier
  • A large, heated swimming pool
  • Indoor and outdoor game facilities

In addition to those amenities, there’s a 55-slip marina and a dry boat storage area. We’re also conveniently located near first-rate health care facilities, houses of worship, shopping, and other features that make a community one of the great places to retire for many older adults.
