49 Years of age and older. 'Do you know that the Gulf of Mexico, in the summer runs at 90 degrees or more?' I didn't. Not until I moved here. Now I feel as though I'm melting, for example at Clearwater Beach. Not for me! I moved to Hudson because there are so many places to escape the heat and still be outside. My ideal: 92 degrees outside, 72 degrees in the water. Want to enjoy your vacation? This is the place. Weeki Wachee River is just a few miles away. Nautical themed, this is a 1/1 home, fully furnished, c/h/a, one large flat-screen smart TV w/cable+ Wi-Fi/ plus free Netflix with so many movies and series, you will be well entertained if it should rain. 2nd TV in bedroom. One parking space under the Carport. Main street yards away, yet backyard is quiet with canals that lead ...49 Years of age and older.

So many restaurants in the area, or if that last beer hits you too hard, just walk across the street where the locals go to the bar ~ plus the best bar food (and cheap) at Skinny's which boasts an outside area with a volleyball sand court and picnic tables.My favorite meal is fish and chips, and this little bar makes as good as I've had in Ireland and England.
