We're starting to pack to leave for cold Pennsylvania in a couple of days after our glorious 3 months here on Otter Mill Way, Kingspoint, sun city Center. It is our second year and we'll definitely book again!
Our first reason for choosing Sun City Center was because we thought it provided us with the healthiest environment available within driving distance in the USA. This retirement community has three indoor and outdoor pools that are essential for be to stay mobile. The bonus that I discovered in March last year is that there is a synchronized swim club for us 55 to 82 year olds. I joined and immediately was accepted into this dynamic, talented group.
My husband, an avid runner and golfer has found that he can't physically do the activities that he used to so this year he joined the shuffleboard team. It turned out to be a very happy, social group where he is active two mornings a week. Along with that, this home comes with bikes which he rides everyday within Kingspoint.
At 73 my husband does not want to drive at night so this year we took advantage of bus trips to a restaurant on Tampa Bay and an Arts Festival in Winter Haven. We're close enough to the South Clubhouse to walk if one of us is taking the car to shop or visit a nail or hair salon across the street from our community in Kingspoint. If need be there is a bus circulating the community all day that will also take you to shopping, doctor or a class that you would chose.
This year we travelled South to the Naples/Bonita Springs area to visit friends and experienced beautiful areas but nightmarish traffic. To travel 5 blocks to a grocery store could take 35 minutes or more. There is a state highway in Sun City Center but golf carts are allowed to cross it which gives you an idea of the traffic flow.
Come and enjoy this lifestyle anytime of the year. You'll love it.
