The Benefits of Retiring in Georgia
My parents are looking to retire and soon we will be, too. I never imagined we would all retire together. We have certain interests that we share, such as beaches, boating, and wine. We also enjoy fine dining, taking hikes, and shopping. All of us prefer to have our own space. Having a large house often means sharing some space. This is making a retirement community look good, especially since my parents are getting older and might need care. They provide medical attention, which is a wonderful advantage . Recently, we were considering the benefits of retiring in Georgia.
After living in a cold climate, we would all welcome the warmer weather in Georgia. All of us are tired of shoveling snow and getting snowed in during the coldest days of winter. It would be perfect to have nicer weather so we could get outdoors more often.
Close to a Major City
Our family likes to go to historical monuments, art galleries, and museums. If we moved to Georgia, we would still be near a major city. One of my friends lives outside Atlanta and she loves the vibe.
Fresh Fruit and Foods
There are also plenty of farmers markets in the Georgia area. I would love to sample Georgia peaches, fresh off the tree. Plus, this is a healthier way for us to eat as we get older and try to eliminate the junk food.
These are just a few of the reasons we are considering Georgia . I am talking to people to try to find out what their experiences were in this state. I guess the best way to figure it out is to visit and stay for awhile.
