“ 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. ”
Chris Schell Local
“Low taxes, warmer weather, ocean”
Margaret Cavallo Beach lover
“We left the DC metro area after nine years to return to my wife's home state. Our main reason was to improve the quality of life for our young kids as they grow up. I could not imagine how overwhelmingly happy we could be with our move. We left a place on a map and moved to a community. We love the people, the beach, the state parks, the thriving restaurant scene... There isn't enough room on this page to cover the bases. We're close enough to DC/Baltimore/Philly but far enough from the craziness. Without a doubt, we cannot imagine a better place to be.”
Phil Hagen Very fortunate DE transplant
“THE BEAUTIFUL BEACH”
MICHELE A NATIVE NEW YORKER
“ I love the beach, I love the atmosphere and friendly people. Even after 6 years of living in DE I still find that I have times that I have to pinch myself and say, "this is home, I don't have to leave" !! In addition to the beach my husband and I love to kayak and there are so many gorgeous bays and parks in DE. ”
