Lorraine Maass My son lives in Claymont DE.
“ 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!! ”

“ We had been vacationing in DE for many years. I knew this was the place to retire for me and my wife. The people here are very friendly. The beaches are incredibility beautiful. The restaurants are awesome. There is so much to enjoy here. And knowing we are still only 4 hrs from our friends back in NY is a huge plus. ”

Joanne Evans I love the beach
“ 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
“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?
