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/

The area we live in is wonderful in regards to possibilities; they are endless. The community is a very welcoming place and is also up and coming with many new places and experiences constantly popping up. The schooling systems are unprecedented, and the area in general is certainly moving up the scale.
Before moving to college, which is where i am now, I lived in a very privileged area. This being said, although the school systems, houses, and amenities were suburb, the people that I was constantly surrounded by were not the best type of people that I should've been being influenced by. To be blunt, they were all your basic privileged and self-obsesssed white kids, and I hated every part of it. It was rare that you'd find a genuine, down to earth person where money wasn't the number thing on their priority list. It really made it difficult for me to find myself, that is, until I left for college.
