Though Central, Southeast, and Southwest Florida get a lot of attention, relocating active adults should not overlook the beauty found in the state’s more northern areas. Located just south of the Georgia border, Jacksonville is Florida’s largest city in both population and land area. For those who discover the distinct appeal of Florida’s northeast coast, Sweetwater by Del Webb provides a beautiful retirement destination.
