There’s A Tiny Town In Delaware Completely Surrounded By Breathtaking Natural Beauty

Laurel, Delaware is a small town of about 3,000 people in Sussex County. It’s a historic town located on Broad Creek, which runs from Delmar, to Records Pond, through the town of Laurel and out towards the Nanticoke River. Broad Creek itself is enough of a reason to notice the beauty of Laurel, so when you add in the stunning ponds and state parks that surround the town, it’s easy to see why this small Delaware town captures the hearts of so many.
