Hard Work and Dedication Make Atlantic Shores an Award-Winning Community


Our entire team strives daily to make Atlantic Shores an exceptional place to live and work. And it shows! Our reputation for excellence was recently reinforced with several awards. We’re proud to have been recognized among the top in the industry for our facilities, marketing, and staff, in competitions judged both by consumers and professionals.

Atlantic Shores’ Award-Winning Legacy

Statewide, Atlantic Shores was chosen as a second-place among Top Retirement Communities in Eastern Virginia by Virginia Living Magazine in their annual “Best of Virginia Awards.” Locally, we were selected in Coastal Virginia Magazine’s “Best Of Readers’ Choice Awards” as Southside Gold Award Winner for Best Retirement Community.

This is the seventh consecutive year Atlantic Shores was chosen as a winner in both “Best Of” competitions by these two prestigious publications.

We also took top honors in the Virginian-Pilot’s “Best of Hampton Roads” Awards, selected as Gold Retirement Community/Virginia Beach.

Known for both its programs and the extraordinary lengths to which our exceptional staff goes in caring for residents, Harbourway, our assisted living facility, was also highlighted in Virginian-Pilot’s “Best of Hampton Roads” with a distinction as Gold Assisted Living Facility/Virginia Beach.

And on a national level, Atlantic Shores garnered several honors in the National Mature Media Awards competition, with our website chosen as a Bronze Award Winner, and our 2019 brochure selected for a Bronze Award. The inaugural Atlantic Shores Classic Car Cruise-In was also chosen as Silver Award Winner/Special Event.

We’re always honored by every award we receive — each acknowledging the unique qualities that make Atlantic Shores a truly outstanding community.
