Which seasonal retirement community is for us?

How do we find the right seasonal retirement community/ the right snowbird trailer park/ whatever? A location, or locations, with other active retirees who have similar interests and similar expectations from retirement. I am not sure how I will recognize such a location, but it has to involve more than golf games, quilting, Friday night dances and afternoon cocktail hours. The location could be any place in the Southern US or Mexico.

In the last few years have traveled extensively through Mexico, Central and South America on our Harley Motorcycle. While we donít necessarily want to repeat this, of anything this aggressive, we still want to experience new and different things, but with other people. Lots of time; but always on a budget.

Maybe you could narrow it down to what you are looking for and what activities you want available . Boating ,Fishing , tennis etc. Then it will be easier to narrow it down . I live in Florida with tons of active retirees . Some people love it & some hate it but it has a lot of recreation to offer .

I figure that if you're old enough to drink, you're old enough!
