Now’s the Time: Discover Retirement & Senior Living in Tennessee

Posted on February 15, 2022

Location, location, location. Whether you or someone you love needs additional support, care, or just wants to live a more maintenance-free lifestyle, deciding where you want to live and retire is a significant decision. While some may choose to stay in the area where they currently live, others may want to move somewhere new for this next chapter of life.

That is why we are highlighting the beauty and benefits of Tennessee! As a Tennessee senior living provider, The Pavilion Senior Living wants to help you discover all the reasons this state makes a great retirement destination. 

Life in Tennessee

A Mild Climate

If you are from a northern state, you know how harsh the winter conditions can get. On the other hand, southerners deal with extremely hot summers. Tennessee offers a happy medium between these two extremes, making it a highly sought-after retirement destination.

According to the World Travel Guide, “Tennessee has a generally mild climate year-round, but still enjoys four distinct seasons.” This makes the state of Tennessee even more unique in that you can experience all four seasons without having to endure subzero temperatures or extremely hot summers. We call that a win-win! 

Something to Offer Everyone

Whether you consider yourself a “foodie,” country music lover, or an outdoor adventurer, Tennessee has something for you. 

Cedars of Lebanon State Park

This 900-acre park, located in Wilson County, Tennessee, is part of the Cedars of Lebanon State Forest and the perfect place to become one with nature. Cedars of Lebanon State Park is equipped with 117 campsites that have electric and water hookups, eight miles of hiking trails, and several picnic areas, making it a great place to spend the day, or weekend, with family exploring the outdoors.

Cordell Hull Lake

Cordell Hull Lake is your one-stop place for all things outdoor recreation. From hiking, biking, and horse-riding trails to fishing, boating, and wildlife viewing, this reservoir, managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Carthage, Tennessee, offers a diverse range of activities that help individuals explore nature.

Wilson County Veterans Museum

Honoring the men and women who served their country in the U.S. Armed Forces, the Wilson County Veterans Museum features ten interactive displays. The museum features information and exhibits on World War I and II, Korea, Vietnam (including a UH-1 helicopter (Huey) that flew during combat), Desert Storm, and more.

If you are interested in learning about history and honoring our country’s veterans, this place should go to the top of your list.

Lower Than Average Cost of Living

A 2021 study conducted by Bankrate about the best places to retire found that out of all 50 states, Tennessee “ranks No. 1 in affordability, thanks to the combination of below-average living costs and a small burden from local and state taxes.”

With the cost of living at 10.2% below the national average, even individuals living on a fixed income are able to create their desired retirement lifestyle and live life to the fullest.
