Long gone are the days of retiring just to sit in a rocking chair on the front porch and watch the world go by. Today’s retirees are active and have more options than were available during their working years. Among the most desirable options is the freedom to live wherever they choose.
Four Reasons to Spend your Retirement Years in Georgia
Here are a few of After55.com’s reasons why Georgia is the perfect location to spend your golden years:
- The weather is warm year-round, allowing Georgia residents to explore all corners of the beautiful, historic state any month of the year.
- The cost of living in Georgia is 7% below the national average.
- Health care costs for a retired couple are the lowest in the nation.
- People on Social Security receive a $65,000 deduction on all income that is outside of Social Security income.
All of those are enough to induce anyone to think very seriously about Georgia as an attractive place to live, but there is so much more.
Things to Do in Savannah
Savannah, Georgia, is not only a popular tourist destination, but an exciting, comfortable place to call home. It is this easy-living quality that is so dear to seniors looking for an outstanding quality of life in a captivating, historic city.
Savannah boasts lovely parks to walk in, the oldest art museum and the oldest continually operating theater in the country. There is also a hop-on-hop-off trolley that tours the city center and its surroundings. Riders can enjoy all the architectural wonders and hop off when the urge strikes to view building interiors and to explore the city’s best features.
Notably, these are not just tourist attractions to visit once. These southern treasures beg to be explored again and again. In addition to all that, the Savannah area has wonderfully affordable and senior-friendly communities to welcome you home.
Landmark 24 Homes
All Landmark 24 communities offer a variety of models and floorplans with a multitude of benefits for retirees. Plans offer one or two stories, different square footage, and different layouts. This include offering several plans with master suites on the first floor, as seen on the Chesapeake II, Pinehurst and Okatie plans.
Whichever plan suits you, the community amenities are outstanding for all residents and their guests. There are trails, clubhouses, fitness centers, playgrounds, swimming pools – some have lakes and dog parks, too.
The Landmark 24 homes are in Savannah and the surrounding cities of Pooler and Richmond Hill, and further southeast in Brunswick and Kingsland. Anyone searching for the ideal place to spend their retirement years should consider these attractive, easy-living and friendly communities.
