Truth be told, there are plenty of great lake destinations all over the country. It’s up to you to decide what destination is perfect for your plans. But before you run off to the nearest lake, pause and consider exactly where it is you want your new lake life to be. Think about your needs and priorities. Do you want to be near the city or is being more remote in line with your vision? Do you see yourself nestled in the mountains with access to a lake? Or in a lakefront retirement community at a lower altitude? These questions can help you narrow down what your ideal is and guide you to the bests lakes to live on.
If you’re a sun-seeker, lake communities in the south set the stage. Obvious hot spots like Florida already draw people in with endless sunshine and warm temperatures year-round, but their impeccably designed lake communities make the Sunshine State even more of a desirable place to retire or relocate to. Other southern states like North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia offer up idyllic lake settings, some mixed with the serenity and remoteness of the mountains. Tennessee and Arkansas can also be deemed some of the best places to retire on the lake. Looking for something farther from the eastern part of the country? Venture out west to Washington, Colorado or California. Wherever you land, boating, fishing, swimming and other outdoor activities will always be waiting right outside your front door.
