First of all you can vacation anywhere that is why they call it vacation, but most importantly retiring locally to a tax friendly beach town allows you to stay close to those grandkids, but not just to them.
As many of you know your 50's and 60's can bring great things, grandchildren, retirement, travel; some even calling it a second childhood, but it also brings the challenges for caring for older parents and caretakers that have cared for you. I ran across this great site recommended by the National Council on Aging that offers some great advice for Baby Boomers faced with Parental Care http://www.babyboomerlifeboat.com/baby_boomer_parental_care.htm
Whether your parents have elected to stay at home, opted for age qualified communities, or assisted living, or in-home care it is nice to be within driving distance to the people who have raised you. Many of us are facing the challenges of illness of a parent or a parent surviving the death of a spouse, doctor visits and the treatments that follow, and adult day care. With communities emerging along the Delaware coastline within hours of three metropolises, and local specialized medical services staying nearby it makes better sense than ever. You can still take in some salt air while breathing easier being close to your loved ones. Just take a look at this new 35,000 square foot Hospice Center opening in Milford http://www.dehospice.org/news/news10.htm .
The Beach communities now offer specialized services as well as Adult Education almost directly on the Boardwalk http://www.wilmu.edu/ . There is nothing like taking an Italian class with a group of friends and neighbors and splitting a bottle of "Chianti" at one of the many fine restaurants, after class of course.
That being said Delaware, and especially the resort towns of Rehoboth Beach and Lewes, have many great things to offer Baby Boomers besides Salt Water Taffy. If you would like more information on beach communities and their amenities please give me a call, Joe Maggio, The Maggio Shields Team, 302-226-3770, or check us out online at www.maggioshields.com part of the Mann and Sons, Inc Maggio Mann McVey brokerage.
