“It is a Beautiful place. The city is full of tall buildings but there are so many hills and lovely streams. Rehobeth Beach is one of my favorite places to visit. People are so friendly and there is so much to do and see. Driving throughout the area is a favorite thing. Stopping and exploring is fun to do. Never knew I would enjoy visiting Delaware as much as I did. I am ready to go for another visit and stay.”
Rhona Creel Davis Beach Walker.....I love swimming and living on the beach. Looking out over the water is so soothing and relaxing and so very peaceful and inspiring.
“Been coming down to DE for years. It has so much to offer. Beautiful clean beaches, fabulous restaurants, quaint towns, fantastic shopping, beautiful year round temps for change of season fun. Numerous festivals year round. We now have owned our home here for 6 years and still feel as we are on vacation everyday! I HEART DE !!!”

“ You can go for a walk on the beach at Cape Henlopen State Park in the morning then take a leisurely drive to have lunch on the Chesapeake Bay on the Eastern Shore of MD in the afternoon. DE has it all. Going on 7 yrs of blissful living... ”

“The blend of diversity and proximity of entertainment. The best health care to fit my needs are at hand.”
Judith A Abernathy I am exhausted by extreme temperatures.
“ ...I love waking up early to the smell of fresh brewed Hazelnut Coffee and then wandering down to Wagamons Pond with our kittens Paris and Gorky. While they chase bugs, climb trees and take dust baths, I sit serenely and enjoy as nature wakes to the sun sparkling across the water. On a lucky morning, Huey, Dewey and Louie (our "pet" river otters) will stop by for comic relief and to say good morning... ”

“ The pace of life. As I travel FROM the Wash beltway across the Bay Bridge, I get to the top of the bridge, see the eastern shore and take a big sigh of relief! I know I'll be home (Ocean View) in 1 1/2 hours. Sweet. ”
Jeff Bond transplant from Bethesda, MD since 1993
“ We have everything you could ever dream of to do here year round ~ Film Festival, Kite Festival, Seawitch Festival, Coast Day, Autumn Jazz Festival and it all begins and ends with the ocean as our horizon and our center. And when I get the itch to feel "the big city"...I have four of the best choices in the world within a 2 to 4 hour drive (Philly,Baltimore,DC & NYC). What better location could there be on the East Coast? ”

I wake up and say "just pinch me, this is too good!!!" ”
Ann Cunningham back in DE
“ I've gone from the hustle, bustle, 100mph city life to the beaches! Best decision I've ever made. I get to fully enjoy my work and my family which I couldn't do in the city. There is no better feeling than running on the boardwalk with the sun rising over the sea! ”
