3) Bel Air

This Baltimore suburb has a population of around 10,000 and 20% of the folks living here are 65 or older. What makes Bel Air so popular with the retired community? Firstly, property taxes are comfortably low (although the median home value is a little steep at $309,000). There’s also easy access to medical care with one of the highest number of doctors in the area when compared to most other cities in the state. Catering to its popularity with seniors, Bel Air continues to add senior homes, communities, and recreational facilities. This not only keeps current seniors happy, but continues to attract more retirees. Bel Air offers a well-rounded community with plenty of things to do. There are local breweries, biking and hiking trails, plus a nearby state park, mall, and cinema. If retirees feel the need for some big-city action, Baltimore is less than 40 minutes away.
