Delaware is a great state for active adults looking for an urban setting with outdoor recreation nearby.

While it might not seem like it at first glance, the state of Delaware is quickly becoming a popular destination for active adults. Home to various cities like Dover and Wilmington, Delaware’s small size, diverse climate and regions, and not to mention its no sales tax policy make The First State an ideal choice for retirement. Throughout Delaware, you’ll find a variety of active adult communities, many of which are situated near historically and culturally significant areas. Read on below to see some of the best lowest-priced active adult communities in the state of Delaware.

Longacre Village – Dover

High $100s – Mid $300s

Longacre Village is a 55+ community nestled in Dover’s woodlands. Comprised of 250 single-family residences and attached villas, homes range from 1,233 to 2,420 square feet and include two or three bedrooms, two or three bathrooms, and an attached two-car garage.

Amenity-wise, Longacre Village provides a 3,000-square-foot clubhouse where residents will find everything from game rooms, gathering spaces, and a fitness room that comes complete with up-to-date cardiovascular and strength training equipment. Outdoors, a resort-style pool and patio coupled with a grilling area and bar/lounge ensure residents can sit back and relax all while enjoying the mild Delaware weather.

Outside the community, residents have easy access to some of the country’s most popular cities, with Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington D.C., all being less than a three-hour drive away.

Noble’s Pond – Dover

Mid $200s – High $300s

Those looking for a more large-scale community should keep Noble’s Pond in mind. This 800-home community features both single-family and attached carriage home styles alongside a number of amenities.
