Retirees Are Flocking To Zephyrhills (For Good Reason)!
Recently, the U.S. News & World Report released their 2022 rankings for the best places to celebrate life after retirement, and the Tampa Bay metropolitan area was number six on the list! Of course, this comes to no surprise to us at The Oaks at Zephyrhills, a family-owned and operated RV and mobile home senior community (ages 55+) in the nearby suburb of Zephyrhills!
The U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Places to Retire” ranking compares the largest 150 cities in the country, considering the housing affordability, happiness, desirability, retiree taxes, the job market, and access to quality health care of each. The Tampa Bay region, which includes the cities of Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and their suburbs, earned top marks for its access to beaches, laid-back lifestyle, and big-city amenities, including championship sports team, a wide variety of museums, and many entertainment options.
The Tampa suburb of Zephyrhills is a popular destination for retirees in its own right, offering small-town charm with city convenience. In fact, about one-third of all city residents are 65 years old or older. With its prime location, lower cost of living, proximity to state-of-the-art medical facilities, and abundance of housing options, including affordable senior communities like The Oaks at Zephyrhills, Zephyrhills certainly fits the U.S. News & World Report’s criteria!
Adding to the happiness factor, the scenery in Zephyrhills is idyllic, with its rolling hills, green pastures, and inviting weather. Zephyrhills also offers a wide range of activities for retirees – from a relaxing stroll at a local park to a round of golf, a visit to a historical site, or a dip in a community pool, like the one at The Oaks.
For many of the same reasons, Zephyrhills also holds the title of the “Snowbird Capital of Florida”! This year, seasonal travelers, many of whom are also retirees, are returning to Florida in large numbers. The U.S./Canadian land border reopened in November 2021, allowing RVers to head south for the winter once more.
During the typical snowbird season of November through April, the population of Zephyrhills almost doubles. These winter visitors help support the local economy, making it possible for even more growth and development in the region and more amenities for all residents. As of the 2020 census, Zephyrhills has become the largest city in Pasco County!
For both RVing snowbirds and retirees (55+) who call Zephyrhills home year-round, The Oaks at Zephyrhills is the perfect place to stay. Well-known for providing a clean, well-lit, beautiful setting, The Oaks is one of the area’s most popular mobile home/RV communities. Renters can opt for seasonal or long-term leases, choosing from 75+ RV lots, mobile home studios, one-bedroom units, or two-bedroom units.
Just as Zephyrhills has grown, so has this sought-after senior community! Over the past two years, The Oaks has added seven new mobile home units to the age-restricted community, all featuring spacious, open floor plans, full bathrooms, durable flooring, plenty of closet space, and gorgeous views of Zephyrhills’ majestic oak trees.
The amenities at The Oaks have also been upgraded and include free Wi-Fi, a crystal-clear pool, shuffleboard area, community center, fully stocked game room, laundry room, and public restrooms. Neighbors are tight-knit at The Oaks, and the community boasts many seasonal activities and events.
If you plan to retire to the Tampa Bay area, we encourage you to visit The Oaks!
