If you’re a part of the 40 million Americans over the age of 65, you’re probably gearing up for retirement, and the move into a new home. Generation X makes up nearly 27% of all new home sales, and there’s a lot that goes into moving in. You’ll need all the basic home essentials, like furniture, cleaning supplies and groceries, but that’s not all. Your relaxed lifestyle isn’t just about what happens inside your new home, but around it as well. A beautiful lakeside community is the perfect place for those who love the outdoors, and want to spend their retirement in great health (which 81% of retirees cite as the most important part of a happy retirement) doing activities that they love.
Instead of the usual grassy patch that makes up your backyard, you’ll wake up to the beautiful lake outside your window, with sparkling waters and gentle breezes. You’ll be able to do amazing water activities like swimming, kayaking, paddle-boarding, canoeing, and more. If you love fishing, you can venture out to a peaceful dock, or rent a rowboat, and go catch yourself a meal.
If you’re afraid of getting seasick, don’t worry. There’s plenty to do on dry land. Why not take a hike around the beautiful lakeside area, where you can explore local wildlife and surrounding landmarks? Get out your binoculars and your hiking boots and head to a local park, nature reserve, or just down to the lake itself, to see what kind of interesting nature you can find.
Your new lakeside community will give you a close-knit circle of neighbors that you can explore the surrounding area with, so don’t hesitate to investigate. You’ll never feel alone in your beautiful new lake home, where you can find millions of things to do to stay happy, healthy, and connected during your retirement.
