SIESTA KEY, FL – There has been a long-standing saying that everyone wants to retire and move to Florida — now there’s proof that it’s true. According to a report by Stacker, seven of the top 10 places for Americans to retire are in Florida. Siesta Key landed at #9 on the list, and it’s easy to see why. 

Siesta Key is known for its relaxing lifestyle with some of the best white sandy beaches in the country. In fact, Siesta Beach was recently ranked #2 among the top beaches in the United States and even ranked in the top 15 for best beaches worldwide. 

Another popular reason Siesta Key appeals to many retirees is its ideal climate and weather. Yearly temperatures tend to hover around 75 degrees but can get into the 90s during July and August. The consistently warm weather and climate make it a wonderful retreat from the harsh winters other states experience. 

Even though the weather is often perfect and the pace of the area is slow, the Siesta Key community has been drawing people to the area for decades. Residents cite the community’s friendliness and the opportunity to participate in recreational activities as bonuses for living in the area. 

With access to the water, community members can enjoy boating, fishing, and other water sports activities. Several local shops and restaurants nearby also offer a lively night scene for retirees looking to spend time with family and friends. 

Siesta Key is also ideally located for anyone wanting to explore more of the Gulf Shores area. Nearby communities like Sarasota, Bradenton, and Lakewood Ranch are all within driving distance and provide a unique adventure. 

With its beautiful beaches and amazing community, it’s easy to see why Siesta Key is constantly ranked as one of the best places to retire.
