Northern Virginia features many wonderful Active Adult 55+ communities. These neighborhoods typically offer walking paths, social activities, exercise center, craft classes, and bus transportation for shopping. Amenities range from fitness centers to pools to award-winning recreation centers. Many are gated communities offering a wonderful opportunity for those who like minimal maintenance and wish to “lock it up” and travel.

Many 55+ Baby Boomers are still working either full time or part time. Many work from their home offices. “BBz” are a phenomenal source of information and energy for the communities they live in. Practically speaking, a home with a “no-maintenance exterior” (no yard work), large fitness center, 1st floor master suite and a 1- or 2-car garage are at the top of their wish list when searching for the perfect home. Of course being close (but not too close) to the children and grandchildren can be a big asset in choosing location. Price is an issue because seniors may have more than one home they visit during the year or they may be seasonal travelers.

Here is a list of some of the communities with links to their individual websites and homes currently for sale.
