Re: Good east coast retirement cities?

I have a mooring I might sell in Stockton Harbor, leads out to upper Penobscot Bay. I hurt myself working on my Seafarer Meridian, built in '67, hull #230. Hopefully I'll get fixed. Had my eyes on Oriental, NC as well. Much longer season. Boat is loaded in Inventory. Anyone would love Belfast too. Stay tuned

I sailed the Chesapeake for years. Always thought there are some great retirement areas around the bay.
The Bahamas are closer from E. Coast Florida however.

That's a lovely photo, Seaduction. The Island Packet is very cool, also. We have a 32 and just love her.

Like the other post, we like it here in Florida on the Space Coast. Homes on the canals are only half price compared to 2005- 2006 prices. Lots of retirees here. Good health services, etc. We used to be in Pittsburgh! Brrrrr!

When we started looking for retirement areas, we looked real hard at Puget Sound. Boy, is that place expensive!

I think the west coast of Florida would be as nice as the east coast of FL and less expensive. But if I had my way, I'd go to Oriental, NC.

Re: Good east coast retirement cities?

I agree with Oriental in some ways, but what about the hurricanes. Many areas of the southern Chesapeake and eastern shore are just as inexpensive.

I think the Chesapeake is the answer. Thats why I moved here. Great sailing 9 months of the year. You dont have to take the boat out of the water as it doesnt usually freeze. Close to the mountains, close to museums and history of Baltimore and Washington DC and Annapolis yet you can sail to the eastern shore and go back in time 200 years and see no one. Huge amounts of creeks, ribvers and anchorages you can visit and not return for 7 years as there are so many. Large sailing community.

Acessable to the Atlantic for coastal trips to cruise the areas of Long Island, and New England, yet return back when their season eands for glorious fall sailing amongst the leaves and bald eagles.

Re: Good east coast retirement cities?

I live in New York and am considering retiring to Rhode Island, specifically the Narragansett Bay. I find the summer climate south of New Jersey to be unacceptably hot and humid.

Rhode lsland's economy has struggled during the recent recession but the household income is still slightly higher than the United States average. The median home in the Providence/New Bedford/Fall River Metro sold for $224,900 vs. the national median of $170,000 (NAR). Cost of living in the Providence Metro has a 109 index vs U.S. average of 100. The relatively high cost of living includes the 5th highest state and local tax burden in the country.

In addition to enjoying a temperate climate, the Narragansett Bay is a wonderful cruising ground with a strong racing scene excellent marine services, and interesting shoreside communities with stimulating cultural opportunities. Try a Jamestown or Warren, RI for a couple of days.
