Meet the Motorcycle Friendly Retirement Community

January 29, 2013

Moving to a retirement community often means downsizing—including getting rid of outdoor toys like motorcycles, RVs and boats. But if you move to Lake Weir Living in central Florida, those toys can go right along with you.

In an article about “eight of the most unusual retirement communities in America,” MarketWatch.com describes the Lake Weir Living lifestyle:

Here you’ll find boomers whose lives revolve around hopping on their Harley or into their hot rod … and whizzing around town for a Sunday drive, thrill-seeker style. The community offers customizable homes … with the option for a five-car garage or even a 50-foot garage customized for an RV, so residents can keep all their toys safe in one place. Plus, the community sits amid roads and rolling hills and near a national forest and the beach, which Schuster claims offers residents “the best scenic riding in the state.”

These days, there are niche retirement communities for all sorts of people. Below are some previous OurParents posts about more of them—some of which MarketWatch also covers in their article. Tomorrow, we’ll talk about another trend: retiring in a college town.
