Wasting Away In Magaritaville: Jimmy Buffett to Open Retirement Community
With Baby Boomers now starting to reach the age of retirement, Jimmy Buffett is to open a Margaritaville retirement community for Parrotheads and others who appreciate beautiful vistas and warm breezes.
The first location will be in Daytona Beach Florida in 2018. Buffett is sinking $1 billion into the village, and it will contain 7,000 homes for those of retirement age and those approaching retirement age.
The generation in retirement and those who are just receiving their first AARP letter look much different than those who came before them, and they aren’t going quietly.
For instance, Sting, formerly of the band the Police is now 65, and has to wear hearing aids, as he is going deaf from a lifetime playing rock and roll, says the Inquisitr. But Sting just put out his first true rock album in years and has no intention of slowing d0wn. Sting and his wife Trudy Styler are still active in yoga.
