Savor living in our charming small town atmosphere

Florida continues to be the leading destination for retirees for many great reasons. But unlike many other active adult communities in Florida, you will NOT find traffic congestion, resort crowds, or hectic high rise condominium construction at Cascades. The Brooksville area is better known for its “Old Florida” feel, Live Oaks, Spanish moss and slower pace.


But instead of relying on generalities, a great example of what we mean by “charming small town atmosphere” is by considering just a few of the NON-CHAIN restaurants less than 5 miles from Cascades. Because we believe that a comfortable low priced lunch or dinner where no home cooking is required is key to quality of life.

  • Florida Cracker Kitchen ( “A place to come feed your soul and belly at the same time and a lifestyle that brings you to your roots.”
