Are you looking at Florida communities and wondering which one to choose? Areas on the Gulf Coast should be at the top of your list! Weeki Wachee is on the state’s west coast and offers cultural diversity along with a variety of activities to fit your Florida retirement lifestyle. Below are three reasons why you should take advantage of what the Florida Gulf Coast has to offer.

Entertainment Value

While the perception of Florida is that there is not much more to it than the beach, the Gulf Coast is considered one of the exceptions. Not only are some of the best beaches in the country located here but also a number of cultural offerings including an opera, a variety of art galleries along with historic landmarks, national parks, and an aquarium. John Ringling of the Ringling Bros lived nearby, in Sarasota, and provided the city with its own permanent circus. Along with all of that, there are numerous restaurants and places for shopping.

Golf Value

Florida’s past times include being outside with friends, enjoying the yearlong mild weather and putting a few games to victory! The low cost of golf and easily accessible courses in the Gulf Coast area make the value a hole in one.  The courses are challenging, beautiful and impeccably maintained. Mature stands of oak and pine, water features, undulating hills and sand traps provide endless variations of play.

Home Value
It’s tax time and while many people don’t look forward to filling out those government forms, Floridians have something to smile about. Florida has no state income tax along with relatively low property taxes and energy costs.
