Statistics confirm what most people already know, that the largest amount of state-to-state moves in America every year are from New York to South Florida. The running joke in South Florida is that Boca Raton is the sixth borough. Because so many people are finding their way to South Florida from up North, there are plenty of real estate agents here to help people find homes to rent or buy in Boca Raton or Delray Beach.

5 Accurate 55 Plus Community Stereotypes

In South Florida, 55 plus communities are about as common as the golf courses and brand new Cadillacs cruising down the streets. Nowhere are there more adult active communities as there are in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and Boynton Beach, Florida.  

Since Wilma Pinstein opened her 55 plus community real estate business in South Florida, she knew right away that people come here for the weather, for the activities, and for the affordable adult communities. Out of all the possible stereotypes you may have heard about Boca, Delray and Boynton, Pinstein explains how these are the five most accurate 55 plus community stereotypes you will ever hear. 

1. Golf course backyards. 
The sport in South Florida is golf. What we have down here are so many golf courses that the chances are your 55 plus community will feature a golf course as an amenity, or come with a golf membership included in the pricing!   

2. Sunday brunch is an all-day event. 
Sunday brunch is known as an all-day event in South Florida. You get on your slacks, gas up the car, and head to downtown. In Boca Raton, the place to be for a great Sunday brunch is Mizner Park. Mizner Park offers retirees great shopping and food, and is a long-time staple in Boca Raton, Florida. In Delray Beach, you drive to Atlantic Avenue for the best brunch in town, and in Boynton Beach, downtown is the place to go 
Sunday Fun Day is the event of the weekend, and all 55 plus communities in South Florida are out in their Sunday best meeting friends and enjoying the sunny Florida weather. 

3. Smart and casual 24-7. 
Speaking of attire, South Florida adult active community style is simple: colorful tops and neutral bottoms.  
Great weather means casual attire, and Tommy Bahama is the store you will know by heart when you live in one of these 55 plus communities.  

4. Year-round cruises. 
If you are not playing golf, having brunch with friends, or shopping at the local, vintage thrift stores, you and some friends from your 55 plus community may be on a cruise. South Florida is filled with yachts and ports, so naturally, cruises are a typical occurrence. There are day crises, weekend cruises, or week-long cruises, all of which are a staple of the South Florida lifestyle after retirement.  

5. It's about people more than the place.  
The one thing that is more important than anything else is the people. Adult active communities in Boca Raton and Delray Beach are about connecting with each other. The golf, the brunch, and the cruises are just activities to enjoy while you spend time with friends and make new ones.
