Harrisburg offers an affordable retirement amongst history and a fun downtown.

Many boomers are choosing to settle in Pennsylvania because it’s tax-friendly for retirees and the cost of living in Harrisburg is 6.7 percent below national average. Many active adults are able to find affordable homes for sale in Harrisburg, and pay fewer taxes.

The city itself is located on the Susquehanna River near the Appalachian Trail, affording residents beautiful views and endless opportunities for outdoor recreation. The Harrisburg area also boasts many top-rated golf courses, like Regents’ Glen Country Club and Iron Valley Golf Club.

This region is also known for its stellar museums, farmers markets, restaurants, and shops. For medical care, Geisinger Holy Spirit Hospital and UPMC Pinnacle are two of the best choices.

So, if you’re not sold on Harrisburg yet, here are a few of its lowest-priced active adult communities.
