Whitehall Area Voted the Best Place to Retire in the USA

June 17, 2015 /

With colorful leaves in the fall, a dusting of white stuff in the winter, blooming flowers in the spring and sunny skies in the summer, that small-town picturesque environment will give Whitehall retirees a moderate sampling of all four seasons. Isn’t it nice to know that you will be walking the streets of the community, maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle upon your retirement?

The Town of Whitehall emphasizes a walkable/bikeable neighborhood where you depend upon your car less, but have large cities, beaches and universities all within an hour drive. You will create your own schedule when to meet people to socialize. The freedom to enjoy parks and trails are within minutes of your backyard.   Stay connected by working at a store in the town center or just enjoy the walk to shop there. Local universities are close by if you are interested in continuing education or maybe you just want to sit on your front porch, enjoy the outside, and read a book. The environment through the surroundings of our neighborhood has endless opportunities that will keep your mind and body healthy.

Need to venture out? Wilmington, Delaware’s largest city is only a 20 minute drive. You can enjoy museums, theatres, galleries, gambling, wineries or a 20-minute train ride to Philadelphia for a large concert or professional sporting event. Like to bask in the sun, take an hour drive south to Rehoboth Beach for miles of sandy shore, outlet shopping, and hundreds of restaurants, boutiques and festivals.

According to a report by Kiplinger.com, Delaware was ranked as the number one state for retirement and is the most-tax friendly state.  Delaware has no sales tax and modest income taxes, from which Social Security benefits are exempt.  The Town of Whitehall is a hidden gem in Delaware that will offer endless opportunities for retirees to stay connected to their community and have a healthy active lifestyle.
