How To Use The AARP Retirement Calculator

Considering retirement in Fulton, Maryland? Less than one hour away from the nation’s capital and about 30 minutes from the cultural hub of Baltimore, this relatively small city offers residents a small-town feel amid bustling metropolises. If you’ve ever thought about retirement in Fulton, here are five more perks that may convince you that this is the city for you.

Four-Seasons Climate

Retirement in Fulton may not mean the sandy beaches and year-round warm weather of Florida, but that’s no reason to pass it over. In fact, residents of the Fulton area can enjoy all four seasons, but without the harsh extremes of the upper Midwest or northern areas of the country. 

When you live in Fulton, you can enjoy plenty of days outside throughout the year, in cozy winters, colorful autumns, beautiful springs, and warm summers. No need to worry about consistently oppressive humidity or other harsh weather conditions here. Although there is snow and ice in the winter, you can rest assured that such conditions will not last for months on end.

Plenty of Activities

Fulton offers its residents local restaurants and shopping, as well as access to Howard County parks and outdoor spaces. Thanks to its proximity to larger cities like Baltimore and Washington, DC, Fulton residents can also enjoy day trips to experience first-class dining, museums, and other historical attractions.  Even better, public transportation is a breeze, which means you don’t have to spend your day stuck in traffic.

Wellness Resources

When you consider retirement in Fulton, you should remember that there’s plenty of access to wellness resources right in your new backyard. The city of Fulton and the surrounding Howard County areas are committed to providing support and resources to older adults. Resources include a variety of senior centers and senior-centered programming, specially designed guides for seniors and their caregivers, and access to Meals on Wheels services, just to name a few. 

Increased Demand for Senior Living

Although the current population of Fulton is 19 percent seniors, this number is projected to grow over the next decade. More and more seniors are choosing to retire near family members or in their favorite neighborhoods, which means fewer tropical retirement destinations and more retirements in senior-friendly cities like Fulton.

As the population of seniors in the Fulton area continues to increase, so does the demand for senior resources and exceptional senior living communities. Older adults, especially baby boomers, are looking to trade in single-family homes for apartments in active senior living communities in order to find friendships and engaging activities focused on wellness. The Fulton area is answering this call by becoming home to senior living communities that serve older adults who have a variety of ability levels and budgets.


Speaking of budgets, retiring in Fulton is a good decision for your bank accounts. Older adults who live in the Howard County area enjoy reasonably priced real estate and other amenities.
