DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP)(STL.News) — Margaritaville:  You can’t get any more laid back than retirement. So perhaps it’s fitting that the king of laid-back music, Jimmy Buffet, is lending his vibe to a retirement community.

Latitude Margaritaville — named after Buffet’s best-known song, “Margaritaville — will open its first community in Daytona Beach for “those looking to live the lifestyle as they grow older, but not up,” according to a press release.

Current plans call for walkable neighborhoods, a fitness center and food and drinks from Buffett’s restaurant. Holdings and Minto Communities announced the partnership last month. Minto said the community’s focus will be on music and will include a band shell for live entertainment. Construction has begun and the village is slated to open this fall.
