Retire in Style: Move to Cape Coral Florida

By: Bill Black

Finding those stairs a little more tiresome?

Does the grass seem to need cutting more often these days?

Getting older often signals a move and whether you are a baby boomer ready to pack up and follow the sun, or a senior about to pursue your dream, the Cape Coral area is a retirement paradise. The City of Cape Coral itself is not very senior - being only half a century old, so all its buildings are still new and sparkling. The yacht club, medical clinic, golf course and shopping centers are all efficiently up to date.

Although there is a large retirement population, Cape Coral boasts a diverse age range, with the over sixties forming less than half the overall population. There is a big plus to this: when your family comes to visit you in this holiday haven, they can choose from many amusements, including Sun Splash Water Park, Mike Greenwell's Family Fun Park and the most recent addition, the 27,000 square foot Eagle Skate Park.

There is also the Independence Day firework display, known amusingly as Red, White and BOOM!!, which is held every July 4th. It is the largest firework display in the whole of the South West Florida area.

Yes, you can forget strenuous plane rides or road trips to visit the grandchildren. Just relax and let them come to you for the vacation of as lifetime. Meanwhile your lifetime will be one long vacation.

To ensure a hassle-free move, there are now newly-trained Senior Real Estate Specialists who will help where they can with some of the more challenging aspects of moving. Referral to an elder law attorney, estate sales or even lawn care are just a few of the problems that this realty service could take care of for you.

Therefore, the daily problem could be as pleasurable as -what shall we do today? There is so much to choose from: dancing fountain shows, ornamental gardens, rose gardens, taking a trip across one of the bridges into bustling Fort Myers or, of course the favorite, playing around on the water. Cape Coral offers enviable beaches, the broadest spectrum of boating choices and world-class fishing with many different species!

For those of you who may be interested in a waterfront property, you can view the prospective properties from both land and water using my floating office. If you are planning a move to the water for the first time, or you need a refresher, there is a plethora of boating instruction, swimming and lifesaving here. You will soon be ready to enter the sailing regattas or power boat races or whatever style of boating is your druthers.

And the tuition doesn't stop with boats; the community education is much diversified. It spans from computers to cookery, from photography to fishing, from tennis to dance, from languages to landscaping, should I mention the varied exercise classes? ...you get the idea. There are many arts and crafts classes and you don't have to buy your decorative shells or driftwood in a store! There are also several non-profit organizations and volunteer groups who would love to meet you!

Right now is also your best time to meet Cape Coral because it is the ideal time to house hunt as we are in our cooler months, a pleasant seventy degrees and minimal rainfall. The perfect weather for you to be introduced to your new home!
