City Living in the Heart of Amish Country

Lancaster, Pennsylvania encompasses more than just Amish country and rolling farmland, but if rural tranquility is your idea of perfection, you’ll find a preserved pastoral beauty that’s still close enough to the city.  Ranked one of the top 50 places to retire by U.S News & World Report, Lancaster has a reputation for sustainable living through its visionary Green Infrastructure program, thriving agricultural industry, and support of family-owned businesses.  Active adults will discover a growing, close-knit community where history brushes up against a modern living, and affordable homes give them more bang for their buck.

Home to a population of about 60,000, Lancaster is located within driving distance to several major cities including Baltimore, D.C, and Harrisburg, and is home to one of the nation’s busiest Amtrak stations. Tucked within a mere seven square miles, residents of this small-scale metropolis have access to big amenities with more than a hundred restaurants, a vast array of shops, entertainment venues, and an inspiring art scene. Maintaining close ties with local artisans, Lancaster has created quite a name for itself producing a variety of homegrown offerings from rich, locally roasted coffee, to award-winning craft brews.

Give Your Retirement the Royal Treatment

Ever come home after a vacation wishing you’d taken the room service with you? Combine everything you love about a posh resort, and a high end 55+ community, and you have Canvas Valley Forge. If move-in help, and grocery shopping service sounds too good to be true, sit back and relax, this one’s the real deal. Luxury communities like this are designed to cater to the boomer who’s spent the better part of life working hard for themselves, and their family, giving them the carefree lifestyle they deserve. Located in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, these gorgeous apartment homes have the convenience of smaller scale living without sacrificing comfort, and style.

If amenities had a grading scale, this Valley Forge location would be off the charts. Canvas has a list of activities not seen in many towns let alone an active adult community including a fitness center, community garden, infinity pool, and a Makers Space for woodwork, and mechanics. An on site salon keeps residents looking their best, ready to meet for a party in the courtyard, or a meal at the demo kitchen followed by a gathering in the private dining room. Humans aren’t the only ones being pampered, this pet friendly community also offers a dog park, and even a pet spa to freshen up after a rough, and tumble frisbee session.
