Fredericksburg is home to a quaint, historic downtown and a few good 55+ communtiies.

Fredericksburg is a historic city south of Washington, D.C. along the Interstate 95 corridor. Recently, the University of Virginia reported that many adults over 55 are moving to Virginia cities like Fredericksburg.

With easy access to the nation’s capital and nicely situated in the Mid-Atlantic, Fredericksburg offers a historic downtown district with many amenities. Partially due to the fact that it is a college town and home to Mary Washington University, residents can enjoy both great food and culture, plus easy access to quality health care and transportation.

Fredericksburg is home to 9 active adult communities, here is a look at four.

Celebrate is a large, resort-style community. Currently, Del Webb offers both new homes and homes for resale. Prospective residents can choose from both single-family and attached homes, which range from 1,340 to 2,860 square feet. The community is in a wooded area west of downtown Fredericksburg, near the Cannon Ridge Golf Course.

The 30,800 square-foot clubhouse called the Riverside Lodge includes a state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor pool, walking track, and dance studio. Outside, residents can enjoy the pool, tennis courts, putting green, and garden plots. Clubs and activities provide residents a time to learn, get to know each other, and find new hobbies.

Virginia Heritage at Lees Parke offers residents an old charm in the southern city. The 795 homes center around a clubhouse that looks like a Colonial mansion.

Residents take advantage of this space to meet for clubs and special events. Outside the clubhouse, residents can enjoy the verdant landscapes of the community, the outdoor pool, tennis courts, and bocce ball courts.
