DOOR COUNTY AS A RETIREMENT DESTINATION

February 6th, 2009

The time has come.  "Baby Boomers" are retiring or nearing retirement, and they are making decisions about where they want to live for their retirement years.  Florida is a popular spot, but  all those pesky hurricanes are a worry (I've personally been in a hurricane, and they are bad!).  The southwest is  picturesque, but really, really hot.  The crime rate is also a cause for concern in a lot of places. 

So what would be an ideal retirement destination?  Somewhere safe.  Somewhere where there is a great selection of homes and condominiums for sale in all price ranges.  Somewhere where there are indoor and outdoor activities in which to participate.  Somewhere appealing enough to cause your friends and family to visit you.  Somewhere where the cost of living is reasonable.  Somewhere where good health care is available. That sounds like Door County to me!

You can tell you are in a safe community when all the crimes are printed in one small column in the local newspaper that is only printed twice a week.  That includes traffic violations!  That's Door County!

Imagine a place where a $150,000 home might be right across the road from a $1,000,000 home.  Imagine not having "good" or "bad" neighborhoods-every neighborhood is a good neighborhood!  Imagine having a choice of shorefront homes, country homes, village homes, no-maintenance condominiums, or buying land and building your own home.  That's Door County! 

Door County is known for its scenic beauty, being a haven for the arts, its shop and galleries, state and county parks, boating and water sports, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, recreational facilities, superior retirement facilities, golf courses, cultural events and festivals-all on a peninsula surrounded by the waters of Lake Michigan and Green Bay!  For decades it has been a major mid-western vacation spot, but now more and more people have decided to make it their home.  So whether it is the small maritime town of Sturgeon Bay, the quaint shoreline villages, or the beautiful rural countryside that captures your heart, retirement life in Door County can be your dream come true!  There is no better time than now to implement your retirement plan!
