Maryland Retirement Communities

..some of the finest 55+ communities anywhere

Maryland retirement communities include a variety of terrains: Western Maryland, Southern Maryland, DC Metropolitan area suburbs, Baltimore and Annapolis areas, the Eastern Shore and the Ocean City shore communities.

For the winter months many retired seniors in Maryland become snowbirds and have second homes in Florida as the winters are long and cold.  In the summer, the most popular local vacation destination is Ocean City, Maryland (See the Eastern Shore page).
