“ The wonderful array of farmers markets that have sprung up over the last 6 years, bringing fresh local produce to our area and creating a real sense of community at the markets. ”
Sharon Dardine beach lover and foodie
“I was born in Millsboro and grew up on the Indian River. My play ground was the Rehoboth Bay and area beaches, such as Fenwick Island, Bethany and Rehoboth. Sand, salt air and the smell of a marsh are part of me. Visits to the mountains are beautiful, but coming home smells of the river and beach air is home. Delaware !”
Bruce Carmine I love living near the river.
“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.”
