For the last 20 years, Ed and Mig Kupic have been spending their winters in Ormond Beach, Fla. Originally from Vermont, they would spend the warmer months there before heading to Cape Cod, where they also spent several summers. A few years ago, they decided they wanted to simplify their summer living while continuing to spend their winters in Florida.

"The good thing about golf is as long as you can swing, you can play,” says Rosemary DeWitt, who started golfing at 58 and founded the Lantern Hill women’s golf group last year. “It keeps you strong and it keeps you moving.”

Highland Springs
Wayne and Rae Hoover, pictured here in front of a floral painting, researched several continuing care retirement communities in North Dallas before choosing Highland Springs.

For more than a decade, Wayne and Rae Hoover toyed with the idea of moving to a retirement community.

“We even visited a few in the area,” says Rae. “We stopped by the sales trailer at Highland Springs while it was still under construction and visited with Christina [Christie, sales director]. That was back in 2006.”
