With a population of nearly 33,000 residents, Salisbury, Maryland, offers seniors a small-town vibe paired with a youthful culture, thanks to its Salisbury University campus. Nicknamed the Capital of the Eastern Shore, the city is located approximately 30 miles from Ocean City and less than 20 miles from Pocomoke State Forest, making it a convenient home base for senior nature aficionados and outdoor enthusiasts. The city's quaint downtown and its numerous businesses host frequent arts and cultural events, and the Salisbury Zoo, which cares for over 100 animals, offers free entry. 

According to Genworth's 2019 Cost of Care survey, Salisbury's assisted living rates average $5,250 per month.
