“ Low taxes.... Nice weather! ”
Bob Fox Indy Homeowner
“I don’t know”
Ann O’Neill Outdoor water person
“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 location to NY/NJ and Washington, DC. and the ocean.”

“ 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. ”
Cindy Jenne Delaware homeowner

“ Coastal Delaware has an indescribable uniqueness not found anywhere else. I know, I've looked elsewhere and my heart always returns to Lewes and Rehoboth. Quaint scenery, sense of place, great people, and a vibrant resort-scene. What more could you want? ”
Bill Skelton Displaced local longing for home
“ The pace of life. As I travel FROM the Wash beltway across the Bay Bridge, I get to the top of the bridge, see the eastern shore and take a big sigh of relief! I know I'll be home (Ocean View) in 1 1/2 hours. Sweet. ”
Jeff Bond transplant from Bethesda, MD since 1993

“proximity to NY”
Jeanne Nalaskowski beach lover
“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.”
Rhona Creel Davis Beach Walker.....I love swimming and living on the beach. Looking out over the water is so soothing and relaxing and so very peaceful and inspiring.
“I don't know much right now I'll have to bone up, online.”
Ed Beach lover!
“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 !”
