Situated in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Roanoke is the perfect city to settle into for retirees seeking scenic backdrops and refreshing mountain air. Because of its inviting atmosphere, the area boasts a variety of continuing care retirement communities (or life plan communities) to call home. The CCRC community experience generally has a lower cost of living, and the state of Virginia does not tax on Social Security benefits. Along with its outdoor appeal, Roanoke also has the perks of city living: theater, museums, and great restaurants, plus regular festivals and cultural events throughout the year. No wonder Forbes listed Roanoke as one of the 25 best places to retire in 2018!
