Why You Should Put Bear Creek on Your List of Best Places to Retire if You’re from New York

If you’re planning to retire from the hubbub of New York living or you’d just like to kick back a bit and enjoy a second home in sunny Florida, make sure you take a close look at Bear Creek. Our community for active adults 55 and older is located near Daytona Beach, which has been named one of the best places to retire on a budget by the American Association for Retired People (AARP) and a number of media outlets.

The relatively low housing costs, absence of a state income tax, and quality of health care are all reasons that this part of Central Florida often lands on national lists of best places to retire. But this community’s desirability as a retirement destination was cemented in the hearts of New Yorkers a long time ago. The mild climate and long stretches of beautiful sandy beaches have attracted thousands of New York residents to relocate to this area over the years, so you’ll have no trouble finding others with whom to trade stories of the Empire State.

How Bear Creek Makes One of the Best Places to Retire Even More Affordable

At Bear Creek, we’ve welcomed quite a few New York residents to our gated community of high-quality manufactured homes. Purchasing a home in Bear Creek means you’ll enjoy comfortable living in a woodsy neighborhood setting with resort-style amenities, but you’ll likely pay substantially less than you would for a site-built home in a similar community. Plus, for your low monthly home site lease payment, you’ll enjoy:

  • Access to our three clubhouse-and-pool complexes, as well as tennis, pickleball, bocce ball, and shuffleboard courts and horseshoe pits
  • Professional community management and staffed security gates
  • Lawn mowing services
