Retirement communities in Pennsylvania offer four seasons of pleasure

By: Country Meadows | Uncategorized

Those of us who relish the varied beauty and weather of the four seasons enjoy living in the temperate climate of the northeastern United States. Among those states, Pennsylvania distinguishes itself all year long in its popular appeal to vacationers and residents alike.

For more than 50 years, Country Meadows has recognized the benefits of the Keystone State as a destination for senior living and now offers 10 retirement communities in Pennsylvania (including one under construction in Forks Township in Easton) as well as a neighboring Maryland retirement community.

Whether residing in personal care, assisted living or in a senior independent living community, many residents of Country Meadows retirement communities explore the region to experience all that Pennsylvania has to offer throughout the year.


Join us for a brief tour of Pennsylvania season by season, starting with fall, which is soon upon us. The official tourism website of Pennsylvania boasts that the state has “more varied fall foliage displays than anywhere else in the entire world” due to its breathtaking collage of deciduous trees. Combine the vibrant, warm colors with the freshly picked apples, peaches and pumpkins of harvest season, and Pennsylvania becomes synonymous with the word “autumn.” A number of communities host fall foliage festivals, and discovering the state’s many covered bridges is a popular activity. Retirement home residents routinely take bus trips to explore the sights.


Winter in Pennsylvania is equally beautiful, with white-capped evergreens and bare but snow-laden trees offering scenes of pristine, natural beauty. Even those who shun the cold temperatures of a Pennsylvania winter—including some residents of Pennsylvania retirement communities—enjoy seeing the snow fall and blanket the ground or watch hearty birds feeding outside the window. Bethlehem, “Christmas City,” offers special holiday events in December, while Hershey, “Chocolatetown USA,” does likewise in February to celebrate Valentine’s Day.


Despite the beauty of a Pennsylvania winter, state residents are always ready to welcome spring and warmer temperatures. With forsythia, tulips and flowering trees in full bloom, Pennsylvanians travel in pursuit of trout in countless freshwater streams, fresh produce from farmers’ markets and roadside stands and maple syrup along the northern tier. Golfers line up to tee off at fairways on the hundreds of landscaped courses that dot the state.


As the Pennsylvania climate heats up, tourists increasingly flock to the southeastern region, reliving the past in Lancaster County’s Pennsylvania Dutch country and historic Philadelphia and Gettysburg. Nature-lovers stroll through manicured gardens, and cyclists wind their way over thousands of country roads, while thrill-seekers ride and scream at action-packed amusement parks. The Pocono Mountains host quiet get-away spots amid their rolling grandeur, while Philadelphia and Pittsburgh offer concerts and museums for art-lovers, as well as professional baseball for sports enthusiasts.

Pennsylvania senior living has something for everyone

No matter what interests you and your family most, you’ll find it in Pennsylvania, either all year round or during one of its four lovely seasons. Chances are, too, that a Pennsylvania retirement community—Country Meadows, in particular—is nearby, just waiting to welcome you as a resident and friend. Pennsylvania—one of the best retirement-friendly states—is the perfect destination for senior living. We hope you’ll agree.
