24 VISITPERDIDO.COM Choosing to retire in Northwest Florida is an easy decision for many reasons. The main reason: our beautiful beaches with gorgeous views. We have a number of beautiful condos and homes just waiting to be enjoyed. Sick of the hustle and bustle? Perdido can be your relaxing answer. Retired military? Perdido is right down the road from the Naval Air Station Pensacola, as well as the Naval Hospital (600 W. Highway 98, Pensacola, FL 32506). You can also take full advantage of having the NAS Commissary (5800 W. Highway 98, Pensacola, FL 32507). It is open seven days a week from 0800 – 1900, with early bird hours beginning at 0730. Maybe you think the change of pace will be too slow for you, but never fear; there are plenty of volunteer opportunities throughout the community. Pensacola State College also offers a reduced rate of admission for senior citizens, as well as a wide variety of Continuing Education courses, ranging from photography to foreign languages to computer science. Perhaps you're looking for a place for parents or grandparents. Perdido has got you covered. There are a number of fantastic living facilities and home health companies, many of which are locally owned (page 106). You can also feel reassured in knowing that our nearby hospitals offer top-of-the-line care, with Baptist Hospital having an annex near Perdido Key Drive, to West Florida Hospital offering all private rooms, and Sacred Heart Hospital offering a large regional network of physicians from Foley, Ala., to Apalachicola, Fla. Those over the age of 65 are also eligible for a discounted lifetime pass for national parks, including our own Gulf Island National Seashore on Perdido Key and Pensacola Beach. Say "Good-bye" to the 9-5 and "Hello" to sunny days filled with crashing waves and sand beneath your toes. Migrating South
