Named Pascua Florida by Juan Ponce De Leon, the Sunshine State did not enter the Union until March 3, 1845. Balmy mild winters began attracting snowbirds to the state in the late 19th century. Retirees continue to flock to the state. It's not hard to see why tourism has become the leading industry.
International trade and citrus are also major contributors to the state's economy. Eighty percent of the nation's oranges and grapefruits are grown here, and 40 percent of all U.S. exports to Latin America flow through Florida.
Florida's landscape includes uplands and coastal plains. It contains more than 11,000 miles of waterways and about 4,500 islands spread across 10 acres.
Florida has 1,250 golf courses, more than any other state in the Union. The 47 mile Pinellas Trail is the longest urban trail on the east coast. Orlando theme parks attract more visitors than any other theme parks in the U.S. The only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles co-exist is in National Everglades Park.
Who Buys in a 55+ Community?
Age-restricted communities, at least those for residents age 55 or better, generally appeal to people seeking a sense of community with other people from similar socioeconomic backgrounds. Most developments are gated or at least have some type of secured access and appeal to retirees seeking a sense of security. People who enjoy lots of amenities, planned activities and social interaction also buy in 55+ developments. Just an FYI: newer communities tend to have a younger demographic while older communities usually have a more mature set of residents, primarily because residents in older developments purchased when they were younger and have stayed put.
