If you are a lover of sun, sand and surf, a city near the beach may be the perfect place for you to retire. A beachside lifestyle can be very enticing for those who enjoy the low-key, mellow atmosphere often found in these cities. It’s hard to resist the temptation of retiring where you can spend your days with your feet in the sand and the wind in your hair, so why fight it? Start looking now for the perfect coastal communities that fit your personality and interests.

Every city has its own atmosphere, so it’s important to figure out what kind of lifestyle you are looking for. Many East Coast states, such as North Carolina and Virginia, offer cities that combine beach life with a charming, historic feel. These areas, rife with the rich history of our country, could be perfect for someone excited about being only miles from the beach and within walking distance of the nearest national preservation district.

Others may have different priorities, however. Therefore, it’s important to look at what a beachside city has to offer in addition to their fabulous beaches. Orlando, Florida, for example, has more than beautiful coastlines; it has inland lakes and access to amazing amusement parks to take your grandkids to. Each city has much to offer in addition to great views and good weather, so you’ll want to determine what else you want in a retirement location.

From downtown shopping and exciting nightlife to world-class golf courses, cities by the sea have incredible opportunities that you won’t want to miss out on. However, the perfect retirement location balances your ideal setting with other important factors like access to quality health care and proximity to friends and family. We invite you to use our retirement guides below to find the perfect seaside retirement location for you.
