Ocean Pines Makes Forbes List of Best Places to Retire

Forbes Magazine, a leading source for business news and financial information, has named Ocean Pines as one of the top places in the nation to retire in 2017.

“The news was greeted with plenty of enthusiasm from the Ocean Pines Association,” Ocean Pines Marketing and Public Relations Director Denise Sawyer said. “We’ve known that Ocean Pines is a great place to call home and now the nation knows.”

Forbes presents an annual list of the top U.S. retirement cities and towns. This year, financial experts have crunched data from 550 communities and have chosen 25 cities, from 20 states, as the best places to retire for affordable, high-quality retirement living.

The famed magazine describes Ocean Pines as a wooded waterfront community of 12,000 on Maryland’s Eastern Shore with an above-average ratio of physicians per capita; good air quality, extremely low serious crime rate, and no state income tax on Social Security income.

“We don’t recommend waiting until retirement to become a home owner in Ocean Pines,” Sawyer said. “We have something for everyone. Get your feet wet in our five pools or dip your feet in the sand along the best stretch of Ocean City beach at the Ocean Pines Beach Club.”
