I have a few in mind that fit this description and I am curious to see if fellow City Data Forumers come up with the same areas.

Sounds like suburbia, in any number of cities. You rarely find a city proper with many neighborhoods with HOAs.

I would start with maybe Cobb County GA (A Northern Atlanta Suburb) 12th most educated county in the country, excellent school system decent cost of living in comparison to other places in the country. Might be a TAD warmer then your description but still has all 4 seasons.

Given the stores mentioned, I’m thinking somewhere in NC, VA, MD; as well as parts of PA, NJ and MA.

Woohoo! Go Cobb county. I live in East Cobb, and we have tons of HOAs, plenty of houses under $500k, and a trader Joe's, whole foods, sprouts, etc.

Other than North Carolina,I have not discovered a ton of suburbs that are comprised of mostly HOA neighborhoods in Virginia,Maryland,Pennsylvania,New Jersey or Massachusetts.

Everyone has their thing and ours is definitely the preference of living in a mater planned,HOA dominant suburb.I have found that it is not common to find this in states where weather leans colder...

While there may not be "a ton", they do exist in the Northeast. To be honest, outside of some of the weather portion of the criteria and a store or 2, this area NW of Syracuse would fit the bulk of what you've described: https://radissoncommunity.nabrnetwork.com/home.php
In this good SD: https://www.bville.org/
About a couple of miles down the road: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.1854...7i13312!8i6656

So, this does exist even in areas "where the weather leans colder".

@Vegabern, that is exactly why I was thinking in terms of those states.

I'm starting to think that this is in regards to an area outside of Raleigh, which just got a Wegmans.

Another such community that is also close to a similar type of shopping area: Riverton Community Association - Home
School district it is in(pretty good and pretty culturally diverse): https://www.rhnet.org/
Shopping area that is about 10-15 minutes away: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0836...6!9m2!1b1!2i37

Wegmans HQ's are about 15-20 minutes away from that community and this college is in the general area of the community/shopping area: https://www.rit.edu/

Trader Joes is about 20 minutes away.

In regards to Radisson, there is a Trader Joes about 30 minutes away across town.

However, there is this HOA community that is 15 minutes away from the same Trader Joes and one of the biggest Wegmans stores likely in the chain: The Preserve HOA | Home
The SD that HOA community is in: https://www.fmschools.org/ (one of the "best" in Upstate NY)
The Trader Joes: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0463...6!9m2!1b1!2i37
The Wegmans: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0321...6!9m2!1b1!2i37

Another such community in that same SD and about the same distance to those stores: https://www.facebook.com/pages/categ...6739852056997/

Also, the second post in thread are a couple of examples near all 3 of those stores: HOA community in the Northtowns (both are in a very good SD: https://www.williamsvillek12.org/ )

So, again, these may exist more than initially thought.
