“ For years, I went to the Jersey Shore...but it cannot compare to Delaware's quality of life: low taxes, great parks, beaches and golf courses, and thriving arts and restaurant scene. And if you think of something you really just hop on the ferry. The Delaware beaches are truly in the middle of it all! ”

“ I love jogging in the State Parks in Delaware. There are some great trails in the Cape Henlopen State Park for runners. There's also the Junction and Breakwater trail between Lewes and Rehoboth that is beautiful and soft on the knees. My favorite is the running trail around Gordon's Pond in North Rehoboth. It's absolutely amazing back there. ”
