Talking About The Good Old Days

Having Friends to Talk About the Good Old Days is Therapeutic and Enjoyable

Talking about good old days is a popular and pleasing pastime, especially when you get older. People usually begin talking about good old days when they are middle-aged. If you have had good old days you re-live them by telling others. Of course, you should be able to remember and recollect those happy moments you spent together with your family, friends loved ones and the places you visited. To keep yourself and your audience happy, and not to hurt the feelings of others, it may be necessary to edit the true happenings. Talking about the good old days is an art that you should learn. It is not only a pleasurable thing to do but also therapeutic. This is because keeping engaged in social interactions is vital for senior years to ensure good mental health and wellbeing.

Rehoboth Beach DE

Life on the Rehoboth Shore

Rehoboth Beach – salty sea air, touristy souvenir shops, and grown-ups carrying drippy ice cream cones with the same delight as Coppertone slathered youngsters. Laid back, and bustling with activity, Delaware’s retro beach town has a “cool vibes only” persona that retirees find hard to resist. Home to Schell Brother’s 55+ community of Truitt Homestead, and wide-open beaches dotted with a rainbow of oversized umbrellas, this resort community reminds people of their childhood family vacations – and yes, cotton candy is for adults too.

Native Americans were the first to acknowledge Rehoboth Beach as a leisure travel destination, taking advantage of its fresh seafood, and Atlantic sea breezes. Fast forward to the present, and this sun-loving haven is still one of the most popular beach towns in the country for both seasonal beach-goers, and year-round residents. On any given day, Rehoboth’s one-mile boardwalk is teaming with tourists toting bags of Dolle’s iconic saltwater taffy or getting an aerial view from the Ferris wheel, but amidst the lazy hazy flurry of summer activity, 55+ residents will find that Rehoboth Beach is a fantastic place to live, and thrive.

Millsboro Captures Old Fashioned Values

As much as we love the bright lights, and vibrant energy of the big city, it’s the simple, small-town ambiance many of us associate with “home.” One Delaware city has the best of both worlds, being close enough to the action, yet still retains that Ozzie & Harriet sense of community. Rural, and progressive, Millsboro is a small gem of a town that everyone needs to know about. It’s one of those places you can pop into the hardware store or the grocery market, and people know you by name versus just one in a crowd. It’s a quiet city, but the locals consider it an ideal place to put down roots.

Founded in 1792, Millsboro’s agricultural industry thrived for more than century and continues to be a major economic contributor to this day. This Sussex County charmer is located in Rehoboth Beach and Ocean City, Maryland with U.S Route 113 providing easy access to all the cities in between. Boasting no sales tax, low property taxes, and overall affordability, it comes as no surprise Millsboro is a fantastic destination for boomers and retirees. For someone seeking an exciting all-inclusive lifestyle, the 55+ community of Independence by Schell Brothers is just one of the many reasons why active adults love living here.
