You could spend an entire retirement visiting the hundreds of historical sites in the great state of Virginia, from Washington's Mt. Vernon and Jefferson's Monticello to Colonial Williamsburg to the Civil War battlefields of Manassas and the historic Appomattox Courthouse. What better way to do that than from one of Virginia's many classic golf communities. Choose among a combination ski and golf community, such as the Wintergreen Resort; a colonial style community with many brick homes like Glenmore, just east of Charlottesville and the renowned University of Virginia (also built by Thomas Jefferson); or a modern community like Viniterra, which features a working winery next to its front gate. With Richmond and the metro D.C. area, an urban fix is never more than a few hours from anywhere in Virginia.
