"Delaware is a wonderful town! The downtown area has a little bit of everything, whether that's food, seeing a movie or shopping. There are lots of nearby parks as well as other grocery stores and shopping centers. I love living there it feels like home, and the community is great! As a college student too, it has a little bit of everything I need and what isn't downtown probably isn't too far of a drive."
"It's a very small town, where you will pretty much always see someone you know when you are out and about! The relationships you will build with your neighbors and community friends will last you a lifetime! I just wish there was more to do, although the community does provide several parks, gyms, a swimming pool and more." - Niche.com
