Moderate weather, excellent health care and a top rated school district are just a few of the reasons this coastal dream town is ideal for retirees and families alike.
This teeny historic village offers ambiance, affordable real estate, and is only a short drive away from many amenities in nearby Middletown.
The third most populated city in the state, Newark is home to University of Delaware, dozens of top notch restaurants, and name brand shopping at the Christiana Mall.
4. Greenville / Centreville
Real estate in this area is among the most expensive in the state. Located at the northernmost part of Delaware, the Greenville/Centreville communities offer rolling hills, tourist attractions, and are a close commute to Wilmington. Equestrian enthusiasts gallop to the area in early May for the Winterthur Point-to-Point race day.
Dover has everything from quaint victorian homes to more modern abodes, plus it is home to several large employers, 4 colleges/universities, and the Dover Downs.
This town in Kent County has had its population more than double in the last 20 years. Despite its growth, it has retained its small town feel. Attractions include the Smyrna Opera House and Painted Stave Distillery to name a few. Its schools are terrific, too!
7. Trolley Square, Wilmington
Trolley Square remains a popular neighborhood for young professionals, thanks to the variety of walkable restaurants and bars, like Kelly’s Logan House. It is also a super quick commute for those working in downtown Wilmington.
Seaford was recently voted the 28th best small town in America! Its Main Street and local festivals make it an attractive choice, and the median home price of $148,100 doesn’t hurt, either.
This colonial town oozes charm. Every two years, Georgetown celebrates one of Delaware’s oldest traditions: Return Day. Two days after Election Day they hold a festival and parade. Why two days? Because that’s how long it used to take to receive election results from Dover!
This desirable zip code in New Castle County offers easy access to Wilmington via Rt. 41 and many housing options from condos to mansions. Local favorites include Six Paupers and the Back Burner. The local community center offers a variety of workshops and fitness classes.
Whether you’re into a small town feel or crave the amenities in our small cities, Delaware has something for everyone. Where do you think is the best place to live in our state?
