With Florida’s unique landscape and warm weather throughout the state, it’s very common for senior citizens to either move here permanently or become “snowbirds.”

Many cities in Florida have a great appeal to senior citizens because of their natural preservations and great beaches.

The sunshine state gives seniors a great opportunity to experience the outdoors year-round, keeping them younger and healthier.
