Some people say birthdays get less exciting when you grow up because there’s nothing to look forward to – turning double digits, getting your license or having a drink with friends. We’re here to say that’s not the case! On your 55th birthday, you unlock the potential to join a senior living community and boy does this come with perks.

As a member of a 55+ community, you can enjoy a care-free, low-maintenance lifestyle. You’ll love all of amenities perfect for active seniors and the great locations. But most importantly, you’ll be able to join a friendly community for like-minded people. From the sparkling waters of the Atlantic, to the tranquil warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Garber Communities is proud to offer 10 of the best retirement communities in Florida.

Have we piqued your interest? Here are five benefits of living in a 55+ Garber Community.


Being around a group of warm, similar-aged people with the same life experiences can make it much easier to establish friendships. Garber Communities are famous for the strong sense of community found at each of our locations. We often host potlucks, delicious BBQs, bingo games, arts and crafts events and more, which makes it easy to connect with your neighbors.

Endless activities

After retiring, you will often find you have free time like never before! 55+ communities allow you to enjoy your golden years with access to top amenities. Each Garber Community is home to a plethora of resort-style amenities such as heated swimming pools, clubhouses, fitness centers, private fishing areas, shuffleboard courts, nature trails and so much more.

Great Locations

The best 55+ communities are all about location, location, location. With nine locations across Florida, you can never go wrong with a Garber Community! Many of our Parks are located near sparkling bodies of water and are just a short distance from lively, historic downtown areas. Plus, living in sunny Florida comes with all kinds of day-trip opportunities! You can take the grandkids to Orlando’s famous theme parks, have a nice day out exploring Tampa Bay or take a trip down to Miami’s South Beach for some fun in the sun.

Carefree lifestyle

Who wants to spend time doing yard work or exterior maintenance? 55+ communities offer enjoyable living. Garber provides the best of the good life with open floor plans and features based on the way you want to live. Our community managers work hard to keep the community in tip-top shape, so you don’t need to.


55+ communities all come with one requirement – age restrictions. This helps create a one-of-a-kind lifestyle whether you’re a retiree or empty-nester. At Garber Communities, residents of our 55+ communities must all be at least 55 years young. Of course, you’re still able to welcome visitors under this age restriction!
