Of course everyone's need differ and much depends on your budget. Generally, lower Delaware is less expensive than Maryland. I like KHov's Longacre Village near Dover, DE because I could walk to a library, and drive to a year-round swimming pool. Townhouses start about $180,000.

I also liked Symphony Village near Centreville, Maryland. The homes are lovely, but rather expensive. (New homes are $282,000 to about $417,000.) There is also the Chesapeake at Easton Club East in Easton. It started as a Del Webb community. It was fairly expensive, but there are currently only resale homes available. I have also seen less expensive 55+ homes in Easton, and perhaps a Realtor could help.

You may be disappointed. It took Mrs. NBP ten (10) years to transfer her PA Cert in Library Science to MD. They didn't understand that Library Science in PA was Library and Media in MD.

Omgosh, that is a little bit crazy. I finally got mine sorted, but it
has taken an extra three weeks. Hopefully it will go a little smoother, sometimes it feels like we are stuck in a Kafka story

OK I have had interviews in St. Michaels and in Somerset County. Assuming I get ANY job offer , no less two, but if I get a choice, which does forum think would be the best fit? I love the Ocean, but it is not a super long drive from S.M and probably less storm issues? St. M's seems a little more cosmopolitan but could just be the tourist's influence. I am sure Salisbury has lots of amenities etc. Pros and Cons??? Thanks!!

I have only been to St. Michael's as a visitor. It is lovely, but I think the attractions would wear thin quickly. Salisbury probably has more to offer, as long as you find a safe place to live. (Sorry, I don't know Salisbury at all.)

Salisbury isn't Somerset County, it is Wicomico. I can't speak for the school system in Somerset or Talbot Counties, but I can say that Somerset is a much poorer place on the whole than Talbot, and that normally is reflected in the how well the public school systems function.

Hi I know Salisbury is in Wicomico but the distances are negligible. I am trying to find out more about housing, things to do etc. What the communities are like. Golden age, I think you are right, Salisbury is probably a more livable place, especially with needing some decent medical facilities. Easton seems to be much larger but I know little about it either, just the few times I have been there for interviews and such. Talbot pays much more and it may come down to that. So , both have about equal pros and cons so far. It does seem like Talbot is too close to the bridge, meaning, it might be less self -sufficient a place than Salisbury area, and i sure don't want to cross that bridge for every little thing! Of course this is all just speculation at this point, just trying to be prepared
