Traditions of America has Your Passport to Living Better

Explore lifestyle at 55-plus Lititz community during April 21 event

Passports are often a pathway to new adventures, and that’s exactly how Traditions of America at Lititz wants visitors to view its upcoming Your Passport to Living Better event.
The 55+ community, located just minutes from downtown Lititz, will roll out the welcome mat from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 21. Prospective homeowners will follow an itinerary that exposes them to the full Traditions experience, from the amenities and lifestyle to the homebuying process.
“It allows them to experience all that we want them to know about Traditions of America,” says Jay Goldberg, Vice President of Marketing. “We want them to know we have a terrific lifestyle that our homeowners adore.”
Part of that lifestyle is the community’s location in America’s Coolest Small Town, with its historic charm, chic boutiques, antiques shops, cafes and more — all within easy access, thanks to a walking path that connects Traditions of America at Lititz with downtown.
The community is also only a short drive from Lancaster city, which Forbes.com recently named one of the 10 Coolest U.S. Cities to Visit in 2018.
“This little slice of America is really a great place to live,” Goldberg says.
What makes it even better is the Traditions experience.
In addition to its award-winning customizable Single Family and Garden Homes, Traditions offers a low-maintenance lifestyle that includes a variety of resort-style amenities. Outdoors, homeowners can enjoy Tennis/Pickle Ball Courts, a putting green, horseshoes and bocce ball, a paved walking path and a park complete with a gazebo, benches and a fountain. An 8,000-square-foot Clubhouse, the hub of the community, features a gathering room with fireplace, Fitness Center, Yoga Studio, Massage Room, Saunas, a Sports Bar & Lounge tended by homeowners, a Library/Gaming Room, Full Kitchen, Dining Room and Club Room.
Goldberg reveals that the Clubhouse is currently undergoing an expansion to provide even more space for community events. “It’s all part of Traditions of America’s commitment to improving the lifestyle of our Homeowners even after they move in,” he says.
The Clubhouse will be the first stop on the April 21st Your Passport to Living Better tour. Visitors will meet homeowner ambassadors who will discuss the TOA lifestyle and take them on a tour of the Clubhouse. There will also be a variety of events, including a cutlery demonstration, a tasting of local microbrews and a session on downsizing.
The next stop will be a tour of the homesites and the community. Traditions of America at Lititz is now in its final phase, with over 80 percent of its homes sold.
Goldberg says the homesites available in the final phase are among some of the best, because they sit on the highest point in the community.
“They offer some of the best views of the area. You can see for miles around,” he says. “The views are quite spectacular.”
There’s even a fully furnished former Designer Model home available for sale. “All they have to do is bring their toothbrush,” Goldberg says. “They also get all of the options and all of the other designer selections chosen by our decorator. It’s a nice way to buy a home.”
Next on the tour is the Design Studio, where visitors will learn about home customization and the latest design trends.
The final stop is the Welcome Center, where sales staff will be on hand to answer questions or take prospective residents to the next step in the homebuying process.
Throughout the event, Traditions’ financial partners will also be on hand to discuss the Buying Made Easy program, including a contingency that ensures a buyer will never end up owning two homes at the same time.
The Passport event is designed to be a guided tour, not only of the community but of the homebuying process.
“If it’s time for them to purchase in a 55+ community, our job is to guide them properly, not to sell,” Goldberg says.
In keeping with the day’s theme, guests will receive a passport that they can get stamped at each of the planned stops. Stamped passports will be entered in a drawing for a two-night stay and dinner at The General Sutter Inn in Lititz.
