Is retirement around the corner or looming for you or a family member?

One of the perks of east-central Florida living is that you’re never far from the Atlantic Ocean.

That’s especially true for Plantation Bay Golf & Country Club in Ormond Beach, where residents enjoy a beach commute that rarely exceeds 10 minutes, and then only for wildlife crossings.

But Plantation Bay’s “hometown” beach isn’t the only option. Head 10 miles further north and you’re smack dab in the middle of […]
