When choosing where you want to settle down and retire, Florida is at the top of many people’s lists. Of course, retiring in Florida stands out because of the warm weather and wide array of beaches, but that’s not the only thing the Sunshine State has to offer. The state is home to many 55+ communities, which are perfect for retirement living and senior living in Florida.

Living in 55+ communities in Florida gives you access to plenty of amenities that are perfect for seniors. While you enjoy all the amenities the best 55+ retirement communities in Florida have to offer, you’ll be able to become a member of a community filled with like-minded individuals.

At Garber Communities, we offer several 55 plus communities in Florida, so we see the benefits of them every day. Here are a few of the great things we love about these communities.

Easy connections

At Garber Communities, we’re big on just that—communities! 55+ communities are big on that, too. Because everyone in the community is a similar age, they often have similar life experiences and perspectives, making it easier to connect with your neighbors and build relationships. It’s kind of like going back to school or college, where everyone is at a similar stage in life! Often, at our communities, you’ll also be able to find arts and crafts classes, potlucks, bingo games and more that help bring everyone together.

Resort-style amenities

As you transition from the workforce and into your years of much needed rest and relaxation, it’s important that the place you reside reflects that. Many 55 and over communities in Florida can give you access to resort style amenities. Seniors living in Garber Communities can enjoy features such as fitness centers, clubhouses, heated swimming pools, shuffleboard courts, nature trails, and much more. All your hard work has led you to the best part of your life, and we believe relaxation should be at the forefront.


You might wonder if it’s actually affordable to live in 55+ community, especially with the amenities and features. The answer is yes! At least, it can be at Garber Communities. At Garber Communities, we remove the cost of the land itself, which means people can own their own space and not have to share walls with neighbors, while still keeping cost of living low. We also have variety of new homes with modern features so seniors and retirees can afford to live comfortably in one of our communities.

Less worry

When you own a home, you are usually responsible for yard work and exterior maintenance. Seniors often don’t want to deal with these chores because of the worry and work—and why should they, when they are trying to enjoy retirement? At Garber Communities, we typically handle community maintenance, including lawn care. You also won’t have to worry about property taxes, and sometimes your 55+ community can even take utilities off your plate. All of that means you can rest assured that your community will look great while you enjoy Florida retirement.
