Living in Florida has long been known as the retirement capital of the United States. The weather is great, the activities are plentiful, and the scenery is top-notch.
But some of the most appealing things about retiring in the state of Florida have nothing to do with the climate or recreational opportunities.
No State Income Tax. Retirees will be happy to learn that Florida does not tax pension. Even if you keep working, there is no state income tax in Florida. Which means more money for you to enjoy your blissful surroundings.
All Of The Attractions. If communing with nature is the goal, the state boasts over 11,000 miles of lakes and waterways. There is no location in Florida that is more than 2 hours from a beach. For those looking to get in touch with the grandkids (or perhaps reconnect with their own inner child), there are numerous amusement parks to explore. (Tip: Florida residents are eligible for special rates on yearly passes that are good at all Florida amusement parks. Cool!)
Travel Hub. Florida is a great starting destination for international travel plans with its 15 international airports and easy accessibility for cruise ships.
Excellent Healthcare. No need to worry about moving and leaving behind your trusted medical professional. From podiatrists to plastic surgeons, there is every health professional possible to keep you looking and feeling your best.
83 degrees. Average temperature. Enough said.
