It’s location also means easy access to the nation’s capital which offers endless entertainment, significant history, and amenities. The cost of living here isn’t cheap, which is perhaps why just 11% of the population is 65 and older. The median home value of $369,000 can put a dent in the nest egg, but there are benefits to retiring in Gaithersburg.
