Bob Hope Village

A Lifestyle of Shared
Experiences & Camaraderie
Welcome to Independent Living — Your Way!

As an active 55+ retirement community for surviving spouses of Air Force Enlisted Retirees, Bob Hope Village gives you an easy-breezy retirement on Florida’s Gulf Coast. Here, you’ll find instant connections and camaraderie with fellow residents who understand military life and are proud of their family’s service to the United States. You will forge fast friendships and delight in all the activities and amenities available to you with our maintenance-free, worry-free retirement.

You’ll wake to the scent of sea breezes and the distant sound of bugles at Eglin Air Force Base. Once up, the world is your oyster! Meet a friend for lunch at our campus café. Take a yoga or strength training class in the fitness center, or go for a stroll along our walking trails, spend the day in our salon, library or one of our gardening plots.

Every Hour is Happy Hour

Whether you’re playing a game of billiards, entertaining friends in your spacious apartment, or taking a dip in our heated pool. A full calendar of activities means you are free to stay as busy as you like!

Best of all, life at Bob Hope Village is about wellness first. Wellness encompasses everything from physical fitness to finding a sense of purpose. From musical performances and lectures on campus to the laidback lifestyle among friends with military backgrounds, military couples and surviving spouses will quickly settle into a life of comfort and convenience.
