Beautiful neighborhood with friendly people, but lacks some diversity. The schools are nice and close by, so travel is convenient.

I live in Lansdowne Woods of VA (fka Leisure World of VA) which is an over 55, active adult community. It has wonderful facilities - clubhouse, pool, exercise room, events galore, bus trips, beautiful surroundings with woods and view of Potomac River, restaurant, trails, resident garden plots, security gate, etc. There are 4 high-rises with 11 stories and 3 low-rises with 4 stories. It is beautifully landscaped with plenty of parking for guests. Check it out at: http://www.lwva.org/
I've lived here for 5-6 years now and I love it here. The people are very nice and accepting. The schools are great and there are a lot of useful shops in the town center.
