Four Retirement Cities for Older Adults Who Love to Fish
By Kara Masterson
When you retire, you may pick up a hobby to help pass the time. One fun hobby you may choose to enjoy is fishing. It’s relaxing, fun, and you get the reward of your catch. When picking a place to retire to, you should pick the right city for your new hobby. Here are four retirement cities for older adults who love to fish.
Cape Coral, Florida
Florida is a popular location for people to retire because of the weather and reasonable prices. Cape Coral in particular is great for fishing. There are a number of canals, and you’re also close to the ocean. You can fish in both fresh water and sea water, giving you a wide range of options and different fish. While the weather is usually nice, be prepared for some humid days.
Coeur d’Alene, Idaho
Many people think Idaho is only full of potatoes, but Coeur d’Alene offers a number of different things you might not have expected. Enjoy the beautiful waterfront and the multiple locations to go fishing in the area. There are also a number of golf courses for those who want to enjoy multiple hobbies. Idaho can be far away from other areas, but close enough to new construction homes to really keep it balanced.
Ithaca, New York
Ithaca has a number of different state parks that have beautiful locations for fishing. Don’t forget to take a look at the waterfalls while in the state parks. It’s also the location of Cornell University, which is perfect for the person who wants to continue to be mentally stimulated. It also means that the area won’t be filled completely with seniors.
Washington is a gorgeous state filled with gorgeous mountains, forests and rivers. Richland, WA happens to be located right where two main rivers (Columbia and Yakima) connect. This gives you plenty of places to relax and throw out the fishing pole. It also doesn’t hurt that Washington doesn’t have any state income tax if you decide to come out of retirement for a bit.
If you want to fish during retirement, you need to pick a location that puts you in the best position to do just that. These four cities each offer something extremely unique. The one thing they have in common, however, is that they are all great places to fish.
