Retire in New Jersey

Though older adults are known for flocking to states like Florida and Arizona to enjoy warm weather in retirement, other savvy seniors know that retirement isn’t just about the heat or humidity. Instead, a growing trend among older adults is to retire in states near favorite neighborhoods or family members, valuing relationships above a tropical climate.

Retirement in New Jersey checks all the boxes for seniors searching for a seasonally varying climate, community resources, and quick access to big city amenities while living in suburban charm. Tinton Falls could be your dream retirement destination; you just might not know it yet.

A Seasonally Varying Climate

Retirement in New Jersey means enjoying a variety of weather across all four seasons. Here in the Tinton Falls area, residents enjoy colorful springs and crisp autumns as well as cozy winters and busy summers. There is truly something to enjoy about all four seasons, and residents can take advantage of sights, sounds, and activities that highlight what each season has to offer.

Excellent Parks and Trails

Getting outside gives older adults the chance to breathe fresh air while exercising, meeting up with friends, or discovering local wildlife. The Tinton Falls area is home to many accessible and well-maintained trails, as well as parks that are perfect for reading a book, casting a fishing line, or meditating in nature.

Easy Access to Healthcare

Tinton Falls offers residents easy access to excellent healthcare via local hospitals and clinics. For veterans, the Tinton Falls VA Clinic is always ready to provide exams and follow-up care. For civilians, the Encompass Health Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital makes recovery even easier.

Close Enough to the City, Full of Suburban Charm

One of the biggest benefits of retirement in New Jersey, specifically in the Tinton Falls area, is the ability to take advantage of small-town charm while still enjoying big city amenities. In Tinton Falls, an hour’s drive north will bring you right to the doorstep of New York City, where you can enjoy theater, museums, world-class dining, and even speciality medical care. When you’re done with your day or weekend in the city, you can retreat to the relaxing and tree-lined suburban streets of Tinton Falls.

Senior Services

The Tinton Falls area takes good care of its senior citizens, providing easy access to wellness and other resources that keep older adults healthy and happy. The town offers senior-specific group programs including exercise and lectures, as well as the opportunity to get involved via the Senior Citizen Group.

The resources don’t stop at the town, though. The Monmouth County Office on Aging also provides resources and information to seniors living throughout the county.


Retirement is a bit easier when you know you have reliable public transportation available. The Monmouth County Office on Aging provides senior transportation for errands, medical appointments, and more. Reserve your ride with a quick phone call. 

Meals on Wheels

Finally, Monmouth County offers a robust Meals on Wheels program for seniors living in the area, as well as multiple congregate meal sites. For older adults who don’t want to cook three meals per day, or who struggle with nutritional issues, these solutions can have a major impact on daily life.
