Why Grand Lake in Oklahoma for Retirement?Thursday, October 18th, 2007
The Grand Lake and Grove, Oklahoma area of Northeast Oklahoma is a popular retirement area for people from all walks of life and from every area of the country. I had someone call this week from the coast of Texas who is planning for his retirement early next year. The first thing he told me he wanted in a retirement area was four season, not a harsh winter or really hot summer, but four nice seasons. Northeast Oklahoma offers such a climate. Fall in the Grand Lake area is just wonderful with cool nights and warm days and lots of sunshine. It is a great time to enjoy fishing or boating on the lake. Winter is not too long nor usually very harsh. You can enjoy this time of year sitting around the fireplace and watching the pretty winter scenes of the lake area. Spring will come to life with dogwoods and redbuds blooming with their wonderful colors. This will be a time of great fishing. Summer is boating time–speed boat, sail boat, sea-doo, or a pontoon to tool around the lake in. Whatever type of boat you enjoy will be terrific fun on Grand Lake, a boater’s paradise.
Retirees like easy shopping, churches, activities, and good health care at hand. Grove and Grand Lake offer all. Grove has many major shopping centers such as Wal Mart Super Center, Lowes Home Improvement, Walgreen Drug plus many quaint shops you will enjoy. The Churches are friendly and look to welcome you as someone who has lived here the past 50 years. The civic clubs offer something for everyone’s interest and you can quickly get involved. I like to do informal surveys when out and see someone I can strike up a conversation with. I ask how long they have lived here and I find about 60% say less than ten years. Grove is truly an easy community to call home and feel right at home. You will find great neighbors here.
You too can find retirement happiness with golf courses, boating on beautiful Grand Lake, and easy living with below average national home cost and cost of living also below national averages. Health care is at the fore front also. Integris Grove General Hospital will break ground early next year on a 56 million dollar new hospital with complete care for you and yours here at home in Grove, OK.
