I am a widow mid 50's looking for a small town community feel, near a beach and on the East Coast. Looking for suggestions. Thanks!

Cape May, NJ
York Beach, Maine
Kennebunk, Maine

Both Cape May and York have old, very quaint downtowns and Cape May is known for its Victorian architecture. Kennebunk has a great waterfront.

Another bonus for Lewes is lack of Hurricanes unlike further south. Then ofcourse there is a ton of tax free outlet shopping outlets as well. Lewes also keeps alot of it's residents year round as well unlike most other coastal towns in the Mid Atlantic region. Can thank the Hospital etc for that.

Yep Cape May aka Lewes, DE sister city across the bay. Both are very similar and thus offer the same except the tax free shopping.

Sorry but i am not a fan of living under the constant threat of hurricanes further down the coast from NC on south.

Agree with above- look into Old Saybrook, CT. Laid back, friendly, with a flat,walkable downtown, lots to do, a mix of ages, lot of retirees, Lots of shopping, the town is on both the Connecticut River and Long island Sound.
