Default I'm so disappointed

Neither Hog Valley nor Scrambletown made the list of the top 25 cities to retire in Florida.

We're in Cape Coral for the month. Seems very safe and nice for retirement. A little crowded at times but I think if you pick your times to go grocery shopping, etc. you can avoid this problem.

My theory is by the time I am ready to retire in 30 or so years all the boomers will be gone, and populations in FL and other currently popular retirement locales will be back to 'normal' (hopefully).

Not unrealistic. Sure, lots of people move here, but lots check out every day. Once the boomers move here and pass away, there's gonna be lots of property available...

I am currently doing a project in Delray and Live in Naples. Trust me, its apples and oranges. I found out AFTER starting the project, for some reason, Delray happens to be the Rehab capital of the entire east coast, more rehab centers and halfway houses per capita than anywhere else. It really could be a great town, but someone needs to drive the rehab community out.

The problem with Cape coral is the City Managers. They have all sorts of quirky ideas that drive investors out. And the fact that there are still tons of houses with Chinese drywall that have never been redone so they rent for 800 a month and bring the type of people that pack 10 people into the 800 a month house. Drive to the 4 different corners of the cape and you would be shocked its all the same city.

Kissimmee. Bahahaha boy I would like to see the face of a person who would buy before renting. Not what I would call a retirement place.

lake nona is also not what I would call as the prices are ridiculous there as well as the surrounding. Really surprised dunellon wasnt in the top.
