Thank you, veterans!

Giving Thanks to Our Veterans

Veterans Day is celebrated in the United States on November 11th. It is a day to honor all of the brave men and women who have served in the military. Veterans Day also marks the signing of the armistice that ended World War I. At The Oaks at Zephyrhills, we are grateful for our military veterans, and we are proud that many veterans and retirees choose to call our community home. Thank you, veterans!

While we honor the sacrifice and service of veterans on November 11th, we want to make sure that they have a safe and secure place to come home to every day of the year. The Oaks at Zephyrhills is an RV and mobile home senior community (55+), located between Orlando and Tampa in scenic Zephyrhills, Florida.


Why Many Military Retirees Become Snowbirds 

Retirement is a time for military veterans to enjoy their lives and live in peace. Retiring from the military can be difficult for some veterans because of how much they have given to their country and because they are used to having a strict schedule. But it also can be an exciting experience that includes benefits like the ability to live or travel whenever they want, to pursue their hobbies, and spend more time with loved ones!

That’s why many military retirees become seasonal snowbirds, traveling to warmer climates during the winter months to avoid icy, cold weather up north. For many retired veterans, the freedom that comes with a snowbird lifestyle is a reward after years of dedicated service!

Florida is a popular destination for snowbirds, offering a variety of affordable, seasonal housing options (like The Oaks at Zephyrhills), beautiful beaches, and perfect weather. The state also has a well-established network of public and private services to support seniors and military retirees. Zephyrhills, Florida, where The Oaks at Zephyrhills is located, has a rich military history and offers access to a local Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) outpatient clinic as well as nearby military bases.

In addition to its proud support for military veterans, the city of Zephyrhills is known for its welcoming, friendly small-town feel. Providing a sense of community for all residents is very important to The Oaks at Zephyrhills, too. Residents regularly come together at the air-conditioned clubhouse, pool area, or shuffleboard pavilion to enjoy each other’s company! On-site property managers and well-lit, paved roads also add to the community’s security.

The Oaks at Zephyrhills offers a wide range of veteran-friendly and affordable housing options, including 75+ lots, one-bedroom units, and two-bedroom units, with leases that range from daily to year-round. Every lot has full hook-ups and a view of the shady oak trees that the property is named after. Many of the mobile homes in the age-restricted community are brand-new, featuring open living areas, full kitchens, and storage space. Free Wi-Fi is an added perk for all residents!

The Oaks at Zephyrhills also accepts federal HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) vouchers, which help provide veterans in need with sustainable housing in the private market. This program combines rental assistance through Section 8/Housing Choice Vouchers from local housing authorities with case management and clinical services from the VA.

We appreciate all our veterans have done to serve our country, and we are proud to provide housing for them. We encourage you to thank and celebrate the veterans in your life, not just on Veterans Day but every day!
