A Capital Spot For Retirement

Greater Harrisburg is bordered by the Susquehanna River and is home to the Pennsylvania state capital.

The river offers not just a beautiful view but a stage for great year-round recreational options. Take in a music festival along the river front, or take to the water in a canoe or a paddlewheel cruise. Residents of Traditions of America at Silver Spring can enjoy both afternoon outings with grandchildren to City Island and romantic evenings at one of Harrisburg’s fine restaurants.

Because Pennsylvania’s state capital is located here, the city enjoys economic growth and stability. Employment opportunities and world-class healthcare are two of the reasons Harrisburg has been called one of the best places for military retirees by US News & World Report

The Capital region includes “Chocolate Town” – Hershey, PA – just 30 minutes from our over 55 community in Mechanicsburg. The visitors bureau describes the area as “A burgeoning center for the region's arts and culture, the community offers all the pleasures of an urban metropolis while maintaining the warmth and caring associated with South Central Pennsylvania.”

They could just as easily have been describing the Traditions of America at Silver Spring community!

Mechanicsburg is an up and coming area with easy access to major cities like Philadelphia and Baltimore. Area attractions like Gettysburg National Park and the National Civil War Museum are a short drive away, as are excellent golf, fabulous fly fishing in the Yellow Breeches, summer water skiing and winter snow skiing not to mention the US Army War College.
