Top planned communities in the Mid Atlantic States
Looking for a four-season climate, a halfway point between the warmth and charms of the South and the cool breezes and cities of New England, and a place to call home? Mid-Atlantic states have you covered. While these states are often perceived as congested or just miles of highway, there’s a real beauty to see if you get off the main roads. The serene beaches and mountains of this area create perfect spaces to settle down without having to settle. And, cities like Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Wilmington are short drives away for museums, entertainment, restaurants, and shopping. You truly get the best of both worlds in the Mid-Atlantic.
