Master-Planned and Gated Communities in Maryland

Welcome to Maryland. Or, better yet, welcome home. You might be here for the blue crabs or the intriguing, historical port city of Baltimore. Or it may be something else. But whatever the reason you’re here, we’re glad. We’re excited for you to make your favorite aspects of Maryland part of your everyday life—while you discover new things to love about this state.

Why Choose a Maryland Community?

There are lots of great places to settle in Maryland, but what makes some of them stand out? We’ll start with the communities on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. If you’re looking for waterfront retirement living, consider the area near the Chesapeake Bay. One of the biggest draws is, of course, the access to water sports and activities. Paddle out on the water in a kayak or a canoe, or just take in the gorgeous views. Not to mention it offers a prime location for sailing and fishing. But you’ll also find active retirement communities and 55+ communities packed full of amenities—including pools, clubhouses, and fitness centers—that will keep you busy and entertained.

This area is also home to some of Maryland’s long-rooted history. Kent Island, the country’s third oldest English settlement, is a great place to explore. You can wander the charming historic districts and enjoy delicious seafood. Another advantage to living in this area? You’re not far from big-city conveniences. Whether you want to head into Washington D.C., Annapolis, or Baltimore, these cities are all close by and ready for you to enjoy their entertainment, dining, and shopping attractions.

Maryland’s options for communities are a great reason to make the move here, but there are other perks that make this state a good contender for the next phase of your life:

  • Weather – If you love distinct seasons, you’ll get all four here. Winters are still cold and summers are still hot, but neither are extreme. On average, you can expect a comfortable year-round climate.
  • Taxes – The good news is that Social Security benefits are not taxed at the state level. But it’s important to note that other forms of retirement incomes, like 401(k)s, IRAs, and private pensions are taxable. You’ll also find that there are estate and inheritance taxes. As you plan your finances for this part of your life, keep these things in mind.
  • Cost of Living – With a lower-than-average state sales tax and no city or county sales taxes, your wallet can breathe a little easier. Plus, property taxes hover around average, adding another positive to the “financial” column.
  • Healthcare – Your health and well-being is a top priority. Maryland is full of top healthcare facilities to ensure you get the best treatment if a need arises.
