When Jimmy Buffett's classic song 'Margaritaville' comes on the radio, my mind immediately goes to a warmer care-free climate. And with retirement not that far off, here's a great find.

If your dream is to be "wasting away in Margaritaville" for real - you can do exactly that -- waste away your golden years in one of many planned Margaritaville retirement communities.

An extension of Buffett's Margaritaville restaurants and resorts, the first 55 and older Latitude Margaritaville is planned for Daytona Beach, Florida. The $1-billion project calls for 7,000 homes.

And there is already more than 10,000 Parrot Heads having registered! Are you hearing this Parrot Heads of the Prairie?

According to the Margaritaville Blog,

With an ideal location in Daytona Beach at LPGA Blvd. and I-95, the destination offers access to the area’s world-famous beaches; championship golf at LPGA International; Daytona International Speedway; Daytona Beach International Airport; the new Daytona One entertainment, dining and shopping destination; and much more.

If all goes according to plan, the first phase will open in the late summer of 2018.

Perhaps moving that retirement up a year or two isn't such a bad idea.
