“property taxes are lowr”

“ 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
“Delaware seems to have the "slowed down lifestyle" I'm looking for.”
Gail Hogentogler beach lover and walker
“ 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? ”

Bruce IBartlett Looking for a great place
“ There is so much that I love about living here. One of my favorite things to do here is head south to Dewey Beach (Tower Road) in the late afternoon with friends and enjoy the afternoon breeze on the bay. The sunsets are spectacular there. It's the perfect place for a late afternoon cookout and happy hour. ”
Christina Harvey Lover of sunsets
“Beaches, location”
Joan Beach lover
“ 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. ”

“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.”
