So my grandma has lived on the west coast her whole life, but is currently trying to decide whether to stay there or move closer to family (we're all east). However, she gets cold pretty easily, and generally finds the winters here bad (in Pennsylvania).
My question is, are there any areas on the east coast that could give her a view of the water, and not have bad winters? Also, she'd prefer it to not be far from where we are.
Thanks!
By the way, she's looking for "low income housing", not quite the projects, it's hard to explain.

Maryland, Virginia, or Coastal Delaware.

Since distance to PA is a determining factor (otherwise Florida would be the best choice here, by far), I think any of the beach areas in Sussex County, Delaware would be a good choice. Stunning views of the water and very mild winters. The only issue I see is finding "low income housing", as all of the areas are quite wealthy. There are several assisted living centers on or near the coast down there, though, if that is an option. If you're on the Eastern side of PA, you're looking at no more than a 3-4 hour drive down there.

The Philly, PA region actually has a pretty moderate climate if you look at average temperatures. Yes, it can get hot, and cold, but the extremes are pretty short lived.

She wants the nicer government housing? Honestly, when I lived in Texas, there were some low income apartments that were good, and they didn't look like projects at all.

How far away for PA is too far? Georgia would fit the bill. And has a ton of low income housing & government assistance housing.

Virginia. The Virginia Beach area is very laid back and diverse also it's only a short drive from major cities such as DC, Baltimore, Raleigh, Philadelphia, Charlotte and even NYC.
