8 Towns In Delaware With The Best, Most Lively Main Streets
Delaware is a state full of small towns, and that means we’ve got some great Main Streets. If you’re looking to enjoy the small town feel, you’ll love walking from shop to shop and checking out local cafes and restaurants in these 8 charming Delaware towns.
1. Main Street, Middletown
Middletown is one of the most charming towns in the state! With plenty of restaurants, historic buildings, shops, and the Everett Theater, you'll never run out of things to do when you visit.

Market Street in Wilmington has undergone some serious rejuvenation in the past few years, and if you haven't been here recently, you might not recognize it! There are so many new cafes, bars, restaurants and shops to explore that you'll never want to leave.
3. Loockerman Street, Dover
Loockerman Street is Dover's Main Street, and it does an amazing job of capturing the allure of this historic Delaware town. Pick up food from one of the many restaurants and have a picnic on the green, or stay warm and cozy inside any of the award winning restaurants surrounding it.

5. Rehoboth Avenue, Rehoboth Beach
While some might consider the Boardwalk to be Rehoboth's Main Street, I think Rehoboth Ave makes a strong case.

You can find all sorts of great food and shopping here, and you'll only ever be a few steps away from the beach.
