“ I always said I'd retire at the beach; I never knew I'd be so lucky as to start my career here right out of college. Six years later, I still have trouble believing that "vacation" is daily life for us! I feel very spoiled to have the ocean and beaches at our disposal everyday, not to mention all of the other recreational, historical and resort attractions. And I love that it's an easy commute to a number of cool major cities! Delaware packs a lot of punch into a small package. ”
Jamie Hudson Former college recruit. Now DE lifer!
“ I love the way the shore lifestyle can transform someone from a "Battle-Hardened", corporatized tough-guy to a fun-loving, deep-breath taking, and enjoyable person who takes pride in calling everyone they meet by their first name! The Ocean has that affect on people! ”
Dan Kauffman Army Vet from Northern Virginia
