We retired in Lake City after living in Chicago for twenty four years. We find Lake City safe and affordable. We have a home on the river with a view we could not have afforded in Chicago (Lake Michigan). We find the people here very friendly and there is plenty to keep you active especially if you like water activities and golf. We enjoy, tennis, golf, boating, fishing, skiing, snowshoeing, and belonging to Kiwanis, Lions, etc. There are lots of cute shops and parks. Homes are very affordable compared to the large cities. Rochester is great and only 40 minutes away! Come join us!
