Florida is still a hot market for retirees, but not South Florida, according to an analysis of demographic data by bizjournals.com.

Punta Gorda ranks second among the nation¹s hottest retirement areas.

Seniors outnumber children by almost 2 to 1 in Punta Gorda, where 54 percent of all households receive Social Security checks. Homosassa Springs, north of the Tampa Bay area, ranked fifth, while Sebring, north of Lake Okeechobee, finished sixth.

The top location in the nation among all population sizes is Gardnerville Ranchos, Nev. (pop. 47,000), a few miles southeast of Lake Tahoe. Its senior population grew 45 percent from 2000 to 2005.

For full details of the study, visit bizjournals.com and look for the ³extra² feature in the middle column.

The Business Journal's Darcie Lunsford sat down with Boca Raton Mayor Steven Abrams to talk about how Mizner Park and IBM helped remake Boca Raton from a sleepy retirement town to a urban hot spot.
