Retirement Lifestyles in Williamsburg, Virginia

Active Adult Communities

 
The Williamsburg area has become a Mecca for retirees who are young-at-heart.  Baby Boomers are rediscovering what the early settlers discovered over 400 years ago - that it is a great place to live.  Age-restricted active-adult communities offer a range of services, social events, amenities, and activities to attract and serve residents.  After all, 55 is the new 35.
 
 
Developers have recognized the desire of Buyers for security and prestige.  In response, gated communities have become a popular phenomenon worldwide. Gated communities typically include controlled entrances and usually offer amenities such as country clubs, golf courses, fitness centers, and club activities.
 
 
Is golf your obsession?  Do you want to step out your back door and onto the course?  On the other hand, do you simply enjoy the beauty of manicured fairways and greens?  Whatever your tastes, the Williamsburg area offers numerous golf communities with golf to suit any ability amid extraordinary natural beauty.  Test your skill on some of the world’s finest courses designed by legendary architects such as Robert Trent Jones, Rees Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio, and Pete Dye.
 
 
According to a survey done by the National Association of Realtors, more and more Boomers want to retire in a suburban setting, motivated by quality health care and cultural activities.  Because Boomers are staying in the work force longer than previous generations, they may want or need somewhat larger dwellings that include one or two home offices.  Williamsburg has a wide variety of subdivisions, within minutes of Colonial Williamsburg, that will meet these needs and wants.
 
 
For those looking for slow-paced urban living, Williamsburg presents a range of prospects.  Mixed-use developments, an intelligent combination of land use, offer residential living and commercial properties, including office space is available in New Town.  They offer sophisticated apartment, townhouse, and condominium homes overlooking beautiful park settings.  Take a nostalgic trip down memory lane to your childhood years when the family enjoyed going downtown.  You can leave your car at home and walk to nearby shopping, dine at neighborhood restaurants, workout at a nearby fitness center, and enjoy multi-screen cinemas.

Waterfront Communities

Whether you have your own boat or simply want to enjoy breathtaking sunsets over the James, the Williamsburg area provides easy access to area rivers as well as lakes and ponds.  Williamsburg is located on a peninsula with the York River to the northeast and James River to the southwest.  Do not overlook the beautiful Chickahominy River, which flows into the James River.  Both the York and James rivers lead to the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean.  Some of the area's most prestigious neighborhoods offer marina facilities, while others have river access and most have lakes or ponds.
 

Should you or your loved ones need independent/assisted living or a continuing care facility, Williamsburg boasts a minimum of five such facilities.  Levels of living offered include independent living, assisted living, supportive living, memory-impairment, and skilled nursing facilities.  The emphasis is on nurturing and enhancing quality of life through planned programs designed for mental and physical stimulation.
