One of the Best Lakefront Retirement Communities Is Right in Your Backyard if You Live in South Florida

Many older adults across the nation dream of trading in their full-time jobs for an active Florida retirement with plenty of opportunities to go fishing and boating. There are lots of South Florida residents who dream about that, too, but worry whether they’ll be able to afford it. Fortunately, one of the best lakefront retirement communities in the state is only a short drive to the north – and it’s affordable for many people on a retirement budget.

Welcome to Lake Griffin Harbor

Nestled on the shoreline of beautiful Lake Griffin in Leesburg is a gated community of attractive manufactured homes for active adults 55 and older. This is a real standout among lakefront retirement communities because it offers easy access to the water and a bevy of resort-style amenities without the hefty price tag you’d expect to pay in a similar community of site-built homes. With a 55-slip marina, boat ramp, and fishing pier, you’ll find it easy to indulge your penchant for boating, canoeing, kayaking, or fishing. Even if you’re more of a landlubber, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy the lake’s scenic beauty from a spacious observation deck that’s ideally positioned for watching wildlife and admiring sunsets over the water.

Plus, although there’s plenty to do inside the community, when you’re in the mood for mingling with the tourists at Florida’s top attractions, you’ll be able to reach many of them with only an hour’s drive. You’ll also find that Lake Griffin Harbor is conveniently located near all the services that retirees are typically looking for, including excellent shopping and dining destinations, medical facilities, and houses of worship.

You’ll Be Right at Home
