Golf communities for retirement living

As host to one of the nation's oldest and most historic cities, Williamsburg and surrounding southeast Virginia locales of Jamestown and Yorktown attract millions of tourists each year.  And, in recent years, a growing wave of retirees has chosen this unique region as the best place to retire.

With a significant number of resort-style master planned golf communities, together with  several neighborhoods designed exclusively for active adult retirees, there is an attractive array of housing choices available for retirees.  And the nearby waterways, quality golf courses, scenic parkways, hiking trails and bike paths... together with the many cultural and artistic events and functions... provide exciting opportunities for a wide variety of lifestyles and activities.

Although still a small town of only 12,000, Williamsburg is the hub of a much larger economic region and thus affords its residents access to commercial amenities and medical facilities normally associated with a more urban setting.  And with the presence of a superb offering of art galleries, museums and performance venues, including those of the prestigious College of William & Mary, the city boasts a proud tradition of art and culture on a par with a much larger city, yet with the convenience and intimacy found only in a small town.

Throughout the year, Williamsburg plays host to arts festivals, concerts and performers from all over the world. In Merchants Square, residents and tourists alike enjoy concerts on balmy summer evenings. The Virginia Arts Festival also comes to Williamsburg each spring, and each fall the city comes alive with An Occasion for the Arts, an annual event that has been held for the past forty years. 

Of course, at the center of life here is Colonial Williamsburg, the restored Historic Area of the city, which was at the forefront of political events in Virginia leading to the American Revolution, and today is one of the nation's pre-eminent historic sites.

With the area's location less than a two-hour drive from Washington D.C., and an hour from Richmond, retirees who elect to move here for their retirement home find themselves members of a growing and vibrant community with lifestyle opportunities that will provide many avenues of discovery and excitement to broaden and enrich their retirement years.  Truly, it is easy to understand why so many have already chosen Williamsburg as their best place to retire.
