Plan and Save : 25 US States You Should Think Twice Before Retiring In!


25. Delaware

Delaware, that small mid-Atlantic state with dune-backed beaches bordering the Atlantic Ocean, Delaware River, and Delaware Bay. You can find many quaint towns, stroll the boardwalks visit art galleries and yes sit in constant traffic traveling north or south on DE-1 to Rehoboth, Bethany, Dewey, and Lewes Beaches. Don’t follow the shortcut on Purgatory Swamp Road!

While the state welcomes hundreds of shoppers daily who revel at the tax-free registers, the cost of living isn’t that cheap,  If you choose not to live near the beach towns, the home prices in moderate neighborhoods are currently at $300,000 and rising.  You will need at least one car to frequent the strip malls, supermarkets, restaurants, and medical facilities, as there is no public transit in Delaware. Access and quality of the local health care system is mediocre at best.
