Many older people live here.
There are a lot of senior citizens in this area and also in my neighborhood. We have new families moving here all the time. There are many city and county activities for all ages.
Port Orange is a retirement destination, so many area businesses will cater to the retirement age group.
Plenty of activities in this area. Shopping friendly. Bus transport is timely, I rode the bus myself to shop. Numerous over 55 mobile home parks with lovely pools and many community get togethers. Nearly every store has elderly employees for those who are not ready to retire just yet. If you wished to further your education there are many schools in the area. Lovely restaurants if you wished to have a night out on the town.This is a wonderful area to live in and make a living in.
There are many services in Port Orange for senior citizens. The McDonalds even has a helper standing by their kiosk to aid the senior citizens in ordering their food. One of the shopping centers has the parking lot tagged so they know which row they parked. There are many senior activities at the Port Orange Library and community centers.
