No matter what age you are, retirement can sneak up on your fast and one thing that everyone has in common when it comes to retirement is a desire to explore a new area, or many new areas. Even if you’re only in your twenties you need to be planning for your retirement, and part of that plan should include deciding where you want to spend those luxury years of relaxation. You might find it wise and frugal to start saving now for your permanent vacation destination while you’re saving up that money to live off of.
Luxury Condos, Resorts, And Vacation Homes
It’s actually pretty wise to spend some of your pre-retirement vacation time over the years exploring some of the places that you might want to venture to once you no longer have the responsibilities of work and a career, or raising children. Take some time to visit the state’s best known for retiree locations, like Florida and Arizona.
You can find some beautiful condos in Florida that overlook some water frontage. Maybe you want to start out by visit a local resort and touring the available homes. If you have the money to buy when you’re young, why not? You could rent your place out as a time share until it’s time to retire and make it your permanent place of residence.
Sun And Fun
So, why is Florida at the top of vacation lists, especially those for people that never want to come home from vacation? Well, that’s because the majority of the people that opt to relocate from their current state of residents pick Florida. It’s warm and welcoming.
The warm weather in Florida is good on your joints and muscles. It’s like a healing sauna on a daily basis (during the summer that is a very accurate comparison).
Florida is also home to endless beaches, so single or married it’s a great place to go. If you enjoy swimming, sailing, or surfing, you’ll feel right at home. Or, if you just like to spend time in the sun you’ll be happy with all that Florida has to offer you.
Visiting The Keys
Florida is a pretty unique place as well. There is a lot more to see than just sand and water. You can visit the glades (OK, that’s more water, but you’ll get a chance to see some cool wildlife).
The Florida Keys are also a unique thing to see. You can drive from island to island, and one of them even has some chickens roaming the streets! Key West is definitely one of the best locations in the Keys and worth a visit. There are more than 1000 of these islands, referenced as the Upper, Middle, and Lower Keys.
