“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.”

“ I love boating in the canals and bays in Delaware. It's a part of Delaware that many people never see that is incredibly beautiful and peaceful. On weekends in the summer, my wife, kids, and I take our boat down the canal from Lewes into the Rehoboth Bay and just go exploring all the areas of the Bay and canals that branch off the bays. It really is a special part of Delaware that many people never get to experience because they just don't know what they're missing. ”

“ 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. ”
Chris Schell Local
“ 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
