Live and Thrive Waterside as a Member of the Riverbend Community
Living near water is good for your emotional and physical health.
According to marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols, author of Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, and Better at What You Do, living near the water is beneficial for your mental and physical health. In researching the science behind these benefits, Nicholas found that living near an ocean, lake, or river can lower your heart rate, alleviate feelings of stress and anxiety, and lead to “elevated and sustained happiness.”
Waterside areas lend themselves to hiking trails and bike paths—and the water itself invites boating, fishing, and swimming. People who live near bodies of water tend to be more active outdoors, which leads to better overall fitness, more restful sleep, and a stronger sense of community connection.
Enjoy the Mental and Physical Health Benefits of Living Near Water
Located along the Delaware River, Riverbend, a new 55+ community by Gemcraft Homes, offers residents stunning views of water and wildlife. Days can begin with a few serene moments, with a cup of coffee on an expansive deck, and end at the clubhouse with friends.
In between, there are long walks and bike rides along the miles of riverfront paths, workouts at the clubhouse fitness center and indoor pool, or discussion groups at the community library. Philadelphia and Dover are an easy drive away for adventures further afield, as are the beaches at Rehoboth and Cape May.
Riverbend’s own little town, New Castle, is the sweet spot. Named one of the ten most beautiful small towns in America, it offers a rich history, cultural events, shops, and restaurants such as Jessops Tavern, a colonial-themed pub housed in a 300-year-old building.
