Are You an Illinois Resident Who’s Planning to Retire Soon? Bear Creek Is One of the Most Affordable Places with Everything You’ve Dreamed Of

If you’re like many Illinois residents who are nearing retirement, you’re eager to trade the snowy winters of the Prairie State for a place where you can enjoy friendly weather year-round and lots of things to do. Plus, you’d like to enjoy moderate living expenses so you can stretch your retirement savings to the max. If that sounds like you, the retirement destination you’re looking for is Bear Creek near Daytona Beach, Florida, a city that’s been named over and over as one of the most affordable places to retire by consumer websites and other publications.

The relatively low cost of living and lack of a state income tax have a lot to do with why this part of the Sunshine State lands on the affordability list year after year. However, Bear Creek makes retirement living even more affordable than many other 55+ communities in this area without scrimping on the resort-style amenities that can help make an active adult lifestyle so enjoyable.

How Do We Do It?

The reason our community is one of the most affordable places to retire is our manufactured housing. We offer attractive, well-maintained manufactured homes in a professionally landscaped neighborhood setting with many of the amenities and services you’d expect to find in an upscale subdivision. For example, when you buy a home in Bear Creek and pay a low monthly home site lease fee, you’ll enjoy:

  • Staffed security gates
  • Trash pickup and lawn mowing services
  • Access to three community clubhouse complexes, including three pools and multiple sports facilities
  • The ability to play golf on a championship course next door

Not only that, but long stretches of sandy beach lie a short drive away, and there are many other nearby historic sites, nature parks, and special events that cost little or nothing to enjoy.
