“ Meeting the chickens that lay my eggs at Dawn's Place. Farmer's markets. $15 off season dinner specials. No traffic on the back roads (shhh!). The town of Lewes, the town of Milton, Que Pasa, the Buttery, fishing, the boardwalk at Rehoboth, Big Fish Grill, no sales tax, no personal property tax, inspection and registration process at DMV. Being here instead of having to come here. ”

Diane Azizi Nurse
“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.
“Looking for suggestions on where to retire in Delaware and more about the tax ramifications. Re: Social security and pension withdrawals. No State tax but still taxed by the Feds? If I buy a retirement home is there any real estate taxes on the purchase or yearly property taxes after that?Thank you.”

“ Very tough to choose just one. I love taking Kai, my Golden Retriever, to the Cape Henlopen State Park beach and letting her play in the ocean and sand. Especially in the winter you'll get those warm spells and most of the time we're the only people in sight. ”
Josh Hay Beach Bum
“ 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? ”
