Known as the “Gateway to The Americas” for its proximity to South America, Miami is a very modern and clean city (voted “America's Cleanest City” by Forbes Magazine) located at the southern tip of Florida.

With warm weather, clean streets, and bustling cultural districts, Miami has always been a retirement mecca dating to the early part of the 20th century. With its hip neighborhoods and vibrant nightlife, the active senior who wants an energized activity packed retirement will fit in perfectly.

Miami is also known as the Cruise Capital of the World since more cruises depart from here than any other place in the world. Many cruise lines are based here including Carnival Cruise Lines, the largest one in the world. This makes it easy for a retiree to jump on a cruise ship last minute for a 3 night getaway to the Caribbean.

Many consider Miami to be among the best retirement cities in the U.S. Here are some other reasons to choose living in Miami.

Social Opportunities: studies have shown that a good group of friends is more important to a happy retirement than money or health. Miami offers many opportunities with civic groups and hobby clubs to generate a solid core group of friends. These friends can help ward off the problems of aging like dementia and health issues.

Public Transportation: rural living isn't good for seniors who can't drive since they require someone's help to get around. The expenses of transportation add up quickly for fixed-income seniors so the public transportation of Miami is quite beneficial. Even better is that most public transit systems have senior rates that are much cheaper than normal.

Access to Medical Services: it's pretty obvious that if you live near a hospital, you're more likely to survive a medical emergency. Despite how your mind feels, the body starts to break down and there's a good chance you'll need a hospital visit during your retirement years. Living in Miami is great since there are more specialists and medical services available and at cheaper rates.

Access to Local Businesses: city living offers walking distance to most businesses that you'll ever use in your retirement years. Even if you need to travel, there are a lot more shopping centers and discount stores in urban areas.

Fitness: exercise is critical to keeping healthy during your retirement years. Cities have every type of fitness facility from standard fitness centers to niche fitness places like indoor rock climbing walls so there's something for everyone. Even if you want to exercise on your own, there's tons of parks or indoor malls to enjoy walking in.

Continuing Education: today’s seniors know the importance of exercising their brains, as well as their bodies. Urban living provides access to a wide range of classes, through local universities, museums, city recreation departments, etc. Enrolling in these types of courses can help stave off the depression that some people feel once they stop working full time.

Food and Entertainment: retirement should be full of activities you never had a chance to enjoy while working. Dinners out to fancy restaurants or weekend getaways to a nearby city or historical site are all possible living in a city. Usually, cities have tons of entertainment venues like theaters and museums and there's always something going on.

Miami Retirement Housing Options: In Miami there are unique housing options which include condos, apartments for rent, hi-rises, retirement communities, lofts, co-ops, luxury condominiums, top end townhouses and other housing for over 55 boomers and seniors. Miami Beach has many fine senior communities and condos for 55+ Boomers and Seniors.
