With North Bay Village apartments for rent, you really can’t do better with retirement living. Obviously, we’re not talking retirement homes here. It’s not Shady Acres or anything like that. I’m talking about moving down to the wonderful climes of Florida and finding yourself a luxurious apartment in order to enjoy the last decades of your life. I used to live in Michigan and loved the state, but as I got older I sure started dreading those winters. You feel those cold winds in a way you never did when you were younger, and icy streets mean broken bones.
When my wife passed on due to cancer, and my kids moved out of state to start their own lives with their own families, I knew it was time to make a decision about the rest of my own life. Did I really want to stay in Michigan, or did I want to go to Florida and enjoy warm weather and the company of people my age? I know lots of older folks move to Florida for the same reasons I contemplated. I looked forward to meeting them and becoming fast friends. But I needed to find a good place first.
I did a lot of research online, even had one of my kids help me out, and we found the perfect apartment complex in Miami Beach. It’s in a very safe area and there are so many places nearby that I barely need a car to get around. The units themselves are very nice and spacious. The best part, for me at least, is that there are plenty of people in my age group living in the buildings. My new neighbor is almost the same age as I am and has already promised to take me around the area and show me the sights and the other people he knows!
