Retire in Margaritaville?

from the June, 2017 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

I doubt you have ever been on a dive boat without hearing Margaritaville and other Jimmy Buffett songs played mercilessly, probably leaving you with a Buffet brainworm.

However, if you are one for whom Jimmy's music rings your eternal-youth bell, then you might consider moving to Latitude Margaritaville in Daytona, Florida.

You see, he's partnered with Minto Communities, a development firm, to create a housing community for those aged "55 or better," where margaritas and chill vibes, along with beachfront access, live entertainment, lap pools, spas and more will be the menu of the day, not to mention margaritas. Opening in the summer of 2018, the 7,000 homes being built will range from the low $200,000s to $350,000.

Writer Eric Vilas-Boas says if you move in, "your literal job then becomes to kick back all day, every day, and ask yourself -- with the studied conviction of a Buddhist monk -- "What would Jimmy Buffett do?" Answer: Pour yourself something tall and strong.†Take a lunch break that takes all afternoon.

No word yet if they'll offer diving, but if they do, sing along on the ride to the reef and wait till your last dive's done for your first margarita of the day.
