Welcome to Florida... Where “Retirement” brings on a whole new meaning!


Retiring in The Panhandle

The Panhandle includes the Counties of Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes, Washington, Bay, Jackson, Calhoun, Gulf, Franklin, Liberty, Gadsden, Leon, Wakulla, Jefferson, Taylor, Madison, Hamilton, Suwanee, Lafayette, Dixie, Columbia, & Gilchrist

Florida has a reputation as a senior-friendly state, but the Panhandle region is especially welcoming to seniors.

There is so much that the area has to offer seniors: The mild climate is certainly high on the list of most people who retire here. The small-town life somehow manages to support an arts and cultural scene worthy of a much larger metropolitan area. The health-care system is outstanding. And there’s plenty to do, including church activities, festivals, craft groups, gaming and hobby clubs, fraternal organizations, dances, theater, symphony and opera performances—you name it.
