In Southeastern Florida, Mizner Falls is a Handsome 55+ Community with Tuscan-Style Single Family Homes, a Newly Renovated Clubhouse, a Swimming Pool, an Activities Director and More
Less than 30 minutes south of West Palm Beach and about an hour north of Miami on the southeastern Florida coast, Mizner Falls is a handsome 55+ single family home community. It was built by Puder Siegel Homes between 2002 and 2004.
Most of the 228 Tuscan-style properties feature an open, single-story layout, and most have two to four bedrooms, two to three baths, a large foyer with coffered ceilings and an attached two-car garage. All residences have a screened-in porch, and some have a den, bay windows and an outdoor pool or sauna. Exteriors are sand colored with a red or tan tile roof and a brick driveway. Many residences back to a pond or a canal, so water views are common.
Prices begin in the high-$300,000s. Association fees help pay for security, tropical landscaping, and shared amenities.
The newly renovated clubhouse has a fitness center with state-of-the-art cardio equipment, a library, a ballroom with a stage, as well as rooms for cards, billiards, or arts and crafts. The outdoor swimming pool is surrounded by a spa, a patio, and courts for tennis, bocce ball, and paddle ball.
Walking and biking trails wind through the community. A full time activities manager helps fill the social calendar with classes, club meetings, and special events.
The gates to the development are off Boynton Beach Boulevard and minutes from golf courses, city recreation centers, medical facilities, and shopping malls. Residents often travel to Palm Beach Dramaworks for plays, lectures, and the Dramabook club. Mounts Botanical Garden and the recently renovated South Florida Science Center are among other Palm Beach County attractions. The 8,000 square-foot Ragtops Museum is filled with antique automobiles.
Bethesda Hospital East is in Boynton Beach and is accredited by the Joint Commission. It is also a primary stroke center.
Summer temperatures are in the 80s and 90s, while winter temperatures are in the 50s and 60s. On average, the area receives 50 inches of rain per year.

Named Pascua Florida by Juan Ponce De Leon, the Sunshine State did not enter the Union until March 3, 1845. Balmy mild winters began attracting "snowbirds" to the state in the late 19th century, and retirees continue to flock to the state today. It's not hard to see why tourism has become Florida's leading industry.
International trade and citrus are also major contributors to the state's economy. Eighty percent of the nation's oranges and grapefruits are grown here, and 40 percent of all U.S. exports to Latin America flow through Florida.
Florida's landscape includes uplands and coastal plains. It contains more than 11,000 miles of waterways and about 4,500 islands.
Florida also has 1,045 golf courses, more than any other state in the Union. The 47 mile Pinellas Trail is the longest urban trail on the east coast. Orlando theme parks attract more visitors than any other theme parks in the U.S. The only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles co-exist is in National Everglades Park.

Why Would Someone Age 55+ Retire in an All Ages Development?
While communities designed for people age 55 or better have a lot of benefits, not everyone wants to retire in a development where most of the residents are the same age and often of the same socioeconomic background. All ages community by law cannot discriminate based on age so they nearly always have a wide range of residents, from families and single professionals to empty nesters and often retirees. Many older all ages neighborhoods are organic, that is having grown over time and never having been "master planned." These usually do not have amenities such as a pool, tennis courts, etc. But more and more new all ages communities are master planned, gated, with covenants and HOA fees. Retirees often prefer these to 55+ communities because they allow more interaction with people from more cross sections of the country.
