Retirees can enjoy the perks of modern-day America, complete with fine dining, art museums and theme parks, and in the same day have an 18th-century adventure in Colonial Williamsburg. The College of William & Mary adds to the sophistication and culture and offers extensive leisure-learning opportunities,” Abbott said.
