  3. Beach-Access Beauties: Put simply, the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico is our area’s greatest feature. You’ll find beachfront homes along the coasts of Pinellas and Pasco counties, including the world-renowned beaches of Clearwater and St. Pete.
  4. Quaint Coastal Communities: Coastal towns like Dunedin and Tarpon Springs provide the ultimate perks of Gulf coast life. Nothing beats smalltown charm coupled with water views and gorgeous sunsets.

Downtown Dwellings: If you like city life with the perks of dining and entertainment, you will love downtown Tampa’s options for homes and condos, many of which feature views of Hillsborough River and Hillsborough Bay. Long-standing and new structures across Channelside, Tampa Heights, and South Tampa are all attracting seniors and snowbirds.

  9. Serene Suburbs: Much like the Golden Girls, some seniors simply want a serene retirement in a Florida suburb with year-round sunshine. Places like the suburbs of Carrollwood, Land O’ Lakes, and Wesley Chapel offer an array of one-story pool homes.
