“ I love the slower pace than that of NJ...the people here are so welcoming. Have been here 16 years and don't look back a day! Moved from the mountains and yes I miss them but the trade-off is our wonderfully clean and beautiful white sandy beaches on the DE bay and the Atlantic ocean! Life is good in Sussex County!! ”
Jennifer Nagle transplant from NJ
“ ...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... ”

In our community, we celebrate everything for everybody: birthdays, anniversaries, or hey, it’s Tuesday, let’s get together. I’ve made a whole family of friends here.”
