There’s a lot to Love About Retiring in Virginia

Buy a house, they said. It will be great, they said… And sure, home ownership does have its perks. Problem is, the things that originally attracted you to the property can become less “perky” over time. If this sounds like your situation, now could be the right time to downsize to a smaller apartment-style home without all the boring home maintenance, yardwork, or expensive repairs. If you’ve been thinking about retiring, you may have considered 55+ communities in Virginia.

Retiring in Virginia is for Lovers

Virginia is for lovers – it’s not just a state slogan, it’s an accurate statement of who should come to this state and explore or make it their home. Virginia is for people who love arts and culture. Or who love the great outdoors. It’s for people who love the energy of a night out. Or who simply love sitting on the beach at sunset. No matter what you love, there’s more of it for you when you retire in Virginia as a member of Upside.

In Northern Virginia, there’s Arlington and Alexandria. Arlington is just a stone’s throw across the Potomac from Washington D.C. It’s known for its high-energy, active lifestyle, which could make it perfect for older adults who aren’t ready to slow down quite yet. And Alexandria is absolutely charming with its cobblestone streets and brick-lined sidewalks punctuated by historic Victorian architecture. Also nearby are the cities of Bethesda and Franconia. Rounding out the list of Upside cities in Virginia are Fredericksburg, Manassas, Centerville, Chantilly, Reston, Sterling, and Ashburn. No matter which city calls to you, you’ll love retiring in Virginia as a member of Upside.
