Retire to Destin, Florida

by Kenny
(Destin, Fl)

If you are nearing retirement age, no doubt you've been researching different areas where you might like to move to, and no doubt you've also looked into Florida!

Florida is a favorite among senior citizens for all of the obvious reasons: mild year-round temperatures, golf, thriving adult communities, and virtually no snow.

Here are a few reasons why Destin, Florida just might be your very own retirement haven.

-- Low population density -Unlike other areas of Florida, Destin is relatively uncrowded. Located on the Florida panhandle along the famed Emerald Coast, Destin gets its fair share of seasonal tourism but its permanent resident numbers are fairly low: only about 12,000.

-- The fishing - For sport fishing enthusiasts who look forward to filling their retirement days with fishing expeditions, it's hard to imagine a lovelier haven for this kind of activity than Destin.

Destin has been nicknamed the "World's Luckiest Fishing Village" due to the large numbers of record-setting catches that have occurred there. Its status as a prime fishing location makes it the home of several large annual tournaments.
