Delightful Retirement Living On The East Coast

If you’re looking to relax in style and comfort, look no further than Delaware! There’s an abundance of awe-inspiring nature and outdoor activities to discover for avid beach-goers, hikers and boaters. And, for those wishing to remain closer to family and friends, Delaware offers many retirement benefits within a short drive or train ride to New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia and Baltimore/Washington D.C.

In addition to the beaches, Delaware delivers a variety of entertainment options including arts, historical destinations, events/festivals, Dover raceway and three casinos—the Casino at Delaware Park, Harrington Raceway & Casino, and Dover Downs Hotel & Casino

Delaware also enjoys tax-free shopping and renowned dining. Residents take pride in the historic small-town ambiance with local businesses, picturesque gardens and walkable, safe neighborhoods. Whether you’re meeting friends for a weekend luncheon, taking grandkids to a local museum, or just watching the sunset from the boardwalk, Delaware has it all!

Financial Benefits To Retiring In Delaware

Aside from the charm and beauty of ocean-side cities, there are many financial benefits to choosing Delaware for your retirement. The state boasts tax-free shopping, low property taxes, low estate tax and no inheritance taxes. 

People over 65 years of age living in the state can look forward to tax-free social security retirement benefits, along with an additional $2500 standard deduction and $12,000 exclusion from retirement income including IRA, pensions and 401k. 

Beyond the tax breaks, cost of living in Delaware is lower than many other East Coast states. All these great incentives are very enticing for retired homebuyers with carefully budgeted living expenses.
