Delaware is one of the few states in the country that doesn’t charge any sales tax on purchases, which certainly helps to make it one of the more fiscally beneficial areas to live and retire in.
Add in the low state and property taxes, as well as the many other facts that contribute to the area’s low cost of living, and you’ll see why Delaware in general, and Rehoboth Beach in particular, are great places to live, work and/or retire.
Tax-free shopping, state-wide tax incentives and retirement perks all make Rehoboth Beach one of the most popular destinations on the east coast of the United States to settle down and make a life for yourself and your family.
And if you want a little more action, well that leads us into another advantage to living in the area – the proximity to several of the mid-Atlantic’s major metropolitan areas.
From Rehoboth Beach, you can be in either Baltimore, Washington, D.C., or Philadelphia in a couple of hours. And take the Cape May-Lewes Ferry across the Delaware Bay to New Jersey and you’re talking about five hours from the Big Apple of New York City.
This means you can head out for a fun day in the big city and still be back to sleep in your own bed at the Delaware beaches.
Not bad, eh?
