When you move into our Fredericksburg active adult community, you are likely looking to take advantage of all there is to do in the area. While there is always an opportunity to take a day trip to Richmond or explore the active adult friendly activities in Washington DC, attractions in Fredericksburg abound. For history buffs, the entire Fredericksburg area is rich with Civil War history, with several famous battles, like the Battle of Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania and Battle of Chancellorsville, General Lee’s last offensive victory, all nearby. If the Revolutionary period is more your style, be sure to visit the home of Mary Washington or Ferry Farm, George Washington’s childhood home. Not interested in the history of the area - you can still explore the quaint historic downtown Fredericksburg. Enjoy shopping at several one-of-a-kind boutiques, take a visit to “antique row”, or try out one of the numerous restaurants and discover your favorite local fare. With so much to offer, Fredericksburg is a great place to retire.

And, if the retirement part of retirement communities is still some time out, Del Webb offers new homes near some of the largest employers in Fredericksburg. Residents can consider opportunities at places like Mary Washington Hospital or the local Fredericksburg City Public Schools. And, educators or avid learners alike can look to the University of Mary Washington for opportunities. Brush up on your favorite topic or learn something new with their open extended learning classes. Whatever your background or interests, Fredericksburg is a great place for active adults.

What to Expect Living in Fredericksburg

Now that you are thinking about buying your dream home, you will want to consider how to structure your retirement budgeting so you feel comfortable in your decision. A good place to start is to understand the values of homes in 55+ communities in the area, so you know what you might need to set aside. You should also factor in cost of living before looking at your home financing options. While Fredericksburg’s cost of living is higher than national average, Virginia currently does not tax Social Security benefits and provides a deductible on other forms of retirement income, which helps make over 55 communities and new homes in the area more affordable.
