Washington State Retirement Communities for Ages 55+

Washington State retirement communities, (age-restricted to 55+), are mostly in the western part of the state near Seattle/Puget Sound to the Coast and the northern part near the Cascade Mountains.

The Seattle area can be literally a breath of fresh air--I have visited more than once but I still remember a springtime walk; I remember the stillness and freshness of the air the way it is after it rains. Spring in Seattle starts in March in this mild climate.
