Williamsburg has One of the Best Planned Communities to Retire In

1 Comment

A local retirement community has been given the honor of being named one of the 50 best planned communities in the United States by Where to Retire magazine. The magazine’s list covered 27 states — from Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida to Texas, California and the Pacific. The full article has details of climate, living costs, health care, taxes and lifestyle. This article will tell you about the many amenities at this amazing planned community, if you are planning to Retire in Williamsburg.

Colonial Heritage, of Williamsburg, Virginia, was on that list. The biggest feather in the cap for Colonial Heritage was that they were the only community from Virginia chosen – it amazes me that they chose only one – Virginia is a great place to live. I have been selling Williamsburg homes for 10 years years and there are many lifestyles and lots of wonderful neighborhoods to choose from. So, what made Colonial Heritage stand out so much?

Where to Retire magazine actually interviews residents as to how they feel about their community and this community has a “well educated and actively-involved group” according to Rick Perkins, director of operations at Colonial Heritage. If you want to see an demo calendar, open this PDF link to see a sample. They have quite an active calendar, don’t they?

Besides the amenities and the quality of the neighbors, the residents say that it has “character” and that the planned community is just outside the greater Williamsburg area, 150 miles from Washington, DC, 10 minutes from historic Colonial Williamsburg.

What is so amazing about Williamsburg, itself? Colonial Williamsburg stretches over 301 acres, and includes 88 original 18th-century structures. Hundreds of houses, shops and public outbuildings are reconstructed on their original foundations. Some buildings are open to the public, while others are private residences and administrative offices. Around the historic area, are gorgeous historic homes and the College of William and Mary – a school steeped in tradition, nationally ranked, and historically important.

The process of picking the Top 50 took a year and spanned 100 communities. After a year of interviews and tours, today is your day, Williamsburg’s Colonial Heritage. Congratulations!

If it is time for you, my reader, to retire, I hope you’ll chose to Retire in Williamsburg and give me a chance to take you on a tour of the best homes, with the best neighbors, and with the best character to find the neighborhood that is just right for you.

  1. This place is amazing. They have such an extensive list of activities. I have never seen such an event calendar for property owners of a retirement community.
