Are you ready for a casual and relaxed way of life with fishing, boating, and incredible resort style amenities to enjoy? Are you ready to make the most of your retirement? Why not join a vibrant community of lake homes? If you love the outdoors and a relaxed lifestyle, and are always looking for recreational opportunities, a lakeside community is just the place for you.
Retire in the South? Heck yeah, the South!
Are you a golfer? Well, South Carolina has more than 300 public and private golf courses altogether and Myrtle Beach is the Golf Capital of the world. And if it?s culture you?re looking for, Charleston was home to the first museum, the first public college, and the first theater in the U.S. And that?s not even mentioning the boating, hiking, swimming, and many other activities you have access to living in lake homes.
It?s important to stay active, and living in a vibrant community provides opportunities that living in an isolated retirement situation cannot provide. The happiest retirees stay active, engaging in three or four activities on a regular basis, while the unhappiest participate in only one or two regularly. Good health is always crucial but especially in later years. In a recent survey, 81% of retirees said their health was the most important element in having a happy retirement. According to the Center for Disease Control, if you are 65 or older and in good health, you should do two and a half hours of moderate aerobic activity every week, and muscle training twice a week.
Retire to fun!
Today, Americans aged 65 and older make up 13% of the population, with just over 40 million seniors in the U.S, but by 2030, when the first generation of baby boomers will have reached or passed the age of 65, 20% of the population will be made up of seniors. In a recent survey done of MONEY Magazine readers, 48% of retirees say they are happier being retired than they had expected they would be. How could that not be true when you live lakeside in a vibrant community with like minded folks who want to share good, relaxing times?
So what are y?all waiting for? Come on down and see what it?s all about. Bet you won?t want to leave.
