Delight in Vibrant—and Modern—Senior Living in One of the Nation’s Oldest Cities

One of America’s oldest and proudest cities, Richmond is steeped in American history and tradition. Yet it’s also here, in the very shadows of the places where our nation’s history was quite literally written, where exciting, new recreational and social experiences await, making Richmond a fantastic destination for history buffs, foodies, and fans of everything from the outdoors, NASCAR and modern art to craft beer and cocktails.

Discovery Village is located just minutes from seemingly everything the Richmond region has to offer, from the beauty and splendor of the James River to Monument Avenue, one of America’s most beautiful boulevards. The Virginia State Capitol itself is a National Historic Landmark, and while it’s used by lawmakers to this day, its architectural significance dates all the way back to 1785, when it was designed in part by Thomas Jefferson himself. It’s also worth noting that of all the historical sites to visit both in and around Richmond, many are free to the public or cost less than $10.

Beyond just its historical lore, however, Richmond allows residents and visitors to satisfy their thirst for most anything, whether it’s the thrill and exhilaration of 15 pulse-pounding roller coasters at nearby King’s Dominion, or exploring nature, wildlife and the Gilded Age opulence of Maymont, one of America’s grandest estates.

In Carytown, the region’s hippest boutiques converge with quirky restaurants and bars, creating the backdrop for many memorable day and evening experiences. And it’s also home to Byrd Theatre, which has preserved the old days of movie magic, in addition to being one of the last, remaining places where you can still catch an old or new flick for as little as two bucks!

In all, there’s plenty of history to enjoy in and around Richmond, but equally as much to love about its modern-day identity. Additionally, seniors who are looking to enjoy simple, around-the-clock access to both outdoor and indoor recreational activities, arts and entertainment, and all the indelible dining and shopping places that make up many of the region’s most renowned, Discovery Village At The West End is the notable link to Richmond’s storied past, as well as its present and future that are just as exciting.
