If you’re looking for a site to direct your golden parachute, you won’t have to go far to get one of the best retirement experiences in the state. MoneyWise, a personal finance website, named West Chester the best community in Pennsylvania for retirees.

The borough is perfectly situated in the heart of the Brandywine Valley, just a half-hour from Wilmington and 45 minutes from Center City. It offers excellent downtown options for shopping and dining.

Retirees can enjoy an abundance of leisure activities: golf, gardening, wineries, shopping, culture, history, educational programs, and breweries.

There are also plenty of outdoor adventures to be had at:

  • Stroud Preserve
  • Oakbourne Mansion
  • West Goshen Community Park
  • John O. Green Memorial Park

SEPTA Regional Rail and buses enable access to nearby communities in Delaware and Montgomery counties and Philadelphia.
