It’s time to retire, to kick back and enjoy life to its very fullest, to spend days at the beach or horseback riding through the hills and nights admiring crystal-clear stars. It’s time to leave behind the stresses of big-city living, of corporate jobs, of traffic jams and early-morning meetings. It’s time, my friend, to retire to the Seacoast.
Here are five reasons to buy a retirement home on the New England Seacoast.
The Outdoor Adventures are Nearly Endless
Whether you fancy a walk on the beach, in the woods, or even right up a mountain, you’ll find the perfect terrain for your trek here on the Seacoast. We’ve got miles of beautiful shoreline (sandy and rocky for swimmers, surfers, and scramblers). We’ve got hundreds of acres of woods and rolling hills (and plenty of trails for hikers, bikers, and horseback riders). We’ve even got some more challenging climbs, like Mount Agamenticus (for our hardy hikers and hardcore mountain bikers).
New Hampshire = (Almost) No Taxes
Retirement means not working… which can sometimes mean watching your wallet a little more closely, too. So you’ll be happy to know that New Hampshire comes with its fair share of tax letups, including NO sales tax, NO tax on Social Security income, and NO state tax on earned income.
For Maine residents, there’s also NO state tax on military pensions, as well as Social Security income.
There Are Tons of Amazing Towns
From the bustle of Portsmouth to the tranquil natural beauty of Berwick, the Seacoast has something for everyone. We’ve got small-town fun and excitement (like Portsmouth or York Beach), charming coastal escapes (like Kittery and Rye), and plenty of rural inland areas (like Dover and Exeter). You can live on the water, in a town, or in the woods surrounded by acres of rolling natural landscape. It’s up to you.
It’s the Gateway to Everywhere
The Seacoast is pretty amazing… but there are also a lot of other amazing places just a short drive away. Looking for a more challenging hike? Head to the White Mountains. Ready to break out the snow skis? There are tons of great downhill resorts throughout New Hampshire and Maine. Craving some big-city excitement? Hey, Boston’s only an hour away.
You’ll Never Find a Place More Charming
You could spend the rest of your life taking in the sights and sounds of the Seacoast and never get enough of those dazzling sunrises painting the sky over the Atlantic, of the quaint wooden piers stretching out into calm bay waters, fishing boats bobbing gently at their moorings, of stoic old lighthouses standing sentinel over the rocks of the rugged coastline… Coastal New England has an undeniable charm you just won’t find anywhere else in the whole wide world.
