Discover historic downtown Lake Placid

If you’re looking at retirement communities in Florida, there’s a lot to consider. Do you want to live on the east coast for the beautiful sunrises, on the Gulf for beautiful sunsets, or among the lush lakes at the center of the state? Do you want a 55+ community, or a place that is all ages? Do you want the convenience and buzz of a city, or are you ready to kick back and enjoy country living?

After years of hard work, you deserve to spend your golden years in a place that fits just right. Often, choosing a Florida retirement community means choosing between the city and the country.

With Garber Communities’ Paradise Village Mobile Home Park, however, you don’t have to choose. Located in serene Lake Placid but just a short drive from the convenience of Sebring, Paradise Village offers residents the best of both worlds.

Interested? Here are just a few reasons why Paradise Village might be the perfect fit for you.
