2) Ocean City
This southeastern city has been designated a resort town and retirement community. Americans have been coming to enjoy the 11-miles of sandy, Atlantic facing beaches for over a century. Ocean City’s popularity shows no signs of slowing up. The year-round population is just around 7,000, making it a cozy community by the ocean. Just remember that number fluxes a lot in the summer months. Ocean City’s boardwalk – complete with amusement parks, bars, restaurants, and shops – is a great place for family outings or a day with the grandkids. Over 30% of the population is 65 or older, so retiring here means retiring in good company. Condos and retirement communities are popular and plentiful. Looking to buy? The median home value is $260,000. Beaches aside, Ocean City is known as a golf haven with more than a dozen courses in the area. Residents also enjoy the low-key entertainment, like frequent summer beach concerts.
