Golden Years in the First State: The Perks of Living in Our Delaware 55+ Communities

December 27, 2023

As you enter your golden years and start to think about retirement, you may find yourself considering a move to a 55+ active adult community. These communities are specifically designed to offer a range of amenities and benefits tailored to active adults aged 55 and older. 

Living in a 55+ community can provide a sense of community, security, and a maintenance-free lifestyle - and if you're looking for the perfect place to spend your golden years, look no further than the first state - Delaware.

Delaware is known for its low taxes, beautiful scenery, and welcoming communities, making it an ideal destination for those looking to settle down in a 55+ community. The state offers a mild climate, with four distinct seasons, allowing you to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities year-round. Whether you're a nature lover or a history buff, Delaware has something to offer everyone.

Delaware is also conveniently located along the East Coast's I-95 corridor, making it easily accessible for family and friends to visit. With its close proximity to major cities like Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C., you'll never be far from world-class dining, entertainment, and cultural attractions.

Benchmark Builders is currently building two 55+ communities in Delaware:

Both of these communities come with the very best of 55+ living, including community amenities and beautiful homes for all tastes and needs.

Amenities, activities, and local attractions

Our 55+ communities offer a wide range of amenities and activities to keep you active and engaged. Both Traditions and Eastridge now have state-of-the-art clubhouses available for residents to gather and socialize, get in a workout, or enjoy some games. There are outdoor courts for bocce and shuffleboard at Eastridge, and soon, Traditions will feature pickleball, shuffleboard, and a brand-new pool.

You can also enjoy the many walking trails through the communities. Traditions is just across the street from the growing Town of Whitehall, which features dining, shopping and recreation opportunities galore, while Eastridge's ponds and views are gorgeous in any season. 

Additionally, these communities are conveniently located just minutes away from Route 1, Delaware's main north-south thoroughfare. Whether you're headed down to the beaches for a sunny day out or planning a quick trip to the city, the possibilities are endless!

Keeping your health and wellness in tip-top shape

Living in a 55+ community can have significant health and wellness benefits. The fitness centers in our clubhouse are designed to help you meet your fitness goals. The communities also organize various classes and programs specifically designed for older adults.

The social aspect of an active adult community can also have a positive impact on your mental well-being, reducing feelings of loneliness and isolation. Additionally, our 55+ communities are close-knit and in low-crime areas, providing you with a sense of security for years to come.
