If you're hoping to travel in retirement, these 55+ communities make it easy.

Living near an airport has distinct advantages, as long as you’re not too close to it. Finding an active adult community that’s far enough removed from the noise yet close enough to make domestic and international travel easier is a real challenge, but we’re happy to offer some help.

The Philadelphia International Airport is the state’s largest airport, and it’s close to the Delaware River and the New Jersey state border. It serves 31.7 million passengers every year, with 500 daily departures to 130 global destinations provided by 25 airlines. You can pretty much travel anywhere you want from here.

Active adult homebuyers who seek homes for sale near this airport have options in several Pennsylvania and New Jersey suburbs. The PA communities can be more costly, but you won’t have to cross over a bridge to get to the airport. Real estate in close proximity to the airport is in high demand, so availability can be limited. The best advice? If you find something you like, grab it before someone else does!
