Pennsylvania Retirement & Resort Communities

Pennsylvania. Synonymous with Philly cheesesteaks, the Pittsburgh Steelers, Dutch country. Hershey may even be familiar. But that’s just the obvious stuff. Packed within the state’s borders is a destination brimming with history, culture and a geographical landscape that will please those looking for shorelines to mountain peaks.

Broken into 11 regions, it’s easy to get intimate with the state and explore every nook and cranny, from the well-known pieces to the hidden gems that make the state great.

Why Choose a Community in Pennsylvania?

Outdoor Adventure

The Appalachian Mountain range meanders through the state from the southeast to northwest, where trail blazers can take to the paths and nature enthusiasts can catch glimpses of various bird species and other wildlife. You’ll also find the Allegheny Plateau and Pocono Mountains as part of the state’s diverse landscape.

...

On the shores of Lake Eerie, dive into adventures out on the water. Hone your fishing skills or pick it up as a new hobby. Grab a kayak and paddle through the scenery. There are also miles of rivers and streams offering near endless water activities and ways to explore nature.

All Four Seasons

For those who appreciate the distinct changing of the seasons, Pennsylvania does not disappoint. In fact, it’s arguably a climate perfect enough to spend time outdoors year-round. The most notable is its autumn season, when the trees are set ablaze with vibrant foliage and it’s hard not to want to spend every moment taking in the colorful backdrop. In the winter, you can count on snowfall a couple times throughout the season—which is perfect for hitting various slopes across the state and skiing your way through the chill. Springtime brings showers, gorgeous blooms and comfortably cool temperatures, while the summer’s average highs rarely go beyond 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

History Lessons

American history is rich here. From the signing of the Declaration of Independence to various battlefields, the Liberty Bell and more, Pennsylvania is deeply rooted in the moments that helped shape this country.

There are other landmarks, sites and markers to explore too. Take a ride on the Reading Railroad by way of the Reading Heritage Museum. Go on a chocolate covered journey and learn about Milton S. Hershey and the sweet legacy he built. And, don’t forget about the covered bridges that give you a peak into Pennsylvania’s rustic past—and make for a fantastic photo op. There are so many intriguing chapters to flip through—but when you live here you have plenty of time to read those stories.

Living in PA

So far, Pennsylvania’s offerings are plentiful. But things like taxes and cost of living are top of mind when deciding on a new place to live. So, it’s important to note that Pennsylvania does not tax resident’s retirement income, and that includes Social Security, 401(k) or IRA accounts, and pensions. Further enhancing Pennsylvania’s tax-friendly climate is the low sales tax. Plus, with a lower-than-average cost of living, your hard-earned dollar can go a lot farther.

Pennsylvania’s proximity to popular cities like NYC and Washington DC makes traveling outside the state convenient. And if you’ve got family and friends in the Northeast, you’re still close enough for visiting. Talk about perfect placement.

Venture Out

Now that Pennsylvania’s caught your attention, browse the communities below to find ones that interest you. Once you’ve made a short list, make plans to visit. Many communities offer discovery tours and “stay and play” packages, giving you an easy way to know if here can be home.
