Suggestions for Places to Live in Maryland

Recently retired, spouse and I will be looking to downsize and move on. We have been in our current suburbia home for 31 years. What was once a quiet and nice place to live is now congested and old.

We really like having nice amenities near by - gym, post office, library, grocery stores, Costco, medical facilities, Johns Hopkins University nearby for cultural events,...

Our idea place would be a retirement like community (rancher, condos) with amenities like these nearby, affordable. So far, we haven't found much around the Baltimore area. Like to stay on the east side of Maryland as we like heading to Ocean City and the Eastern shore for get away weekends.

Curious of those who have found a greta place in Maryland to retire.

Don't really know MD, but I have always been intrigued by Annapolis. Based on your question may not be what you are looking for...

Harve de Grace or if that is too small, it's neighbors BelAir or Churchville. (this area is about 30mi north of Baltimore). Another area is Fallston (south BelAir)

I really like all the areas mentioned...Annapolis, Havre de Grace, etc. are all nice less crowded areas. Also Columbia and Crofton. Ranchers are not popular in this area from what I see but they do have 55+ communities with townhomes that feature 1st as well as 2nd floor master suites. Some of these have condos also. I see a lot of folks relocating to PA close enough to shop in DE. They can lower their retirement income taxes and pay no sales tax in DE.
...with no reasonable expectation for ER, I'm just here auditing the AP class.Retired 8/1/15.

I enjoyed Annapolis when I lived there, but that was almost 40 years ago.
