“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.”

“ 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 miss....you just hop on the ferry. The Delaware beaches are truly in the middle of it all! ”
