Here's a thread mentioning publications available in Delaware. I think it would be nice to add to these, as they come to mind. Could be helpful information for newcomers. I'm sure Longnecker and Beachliz have some to add. Here's a start:

Delaware Beach Life Magazine - a Kent and Sussex County favorite
Great magazine, focusing on beaches, and things to do in the two lower counties. They cover fishing, dining, recreation areas and things to do. Published 8 times/year.

Delaware Today - Known to be an upstate magazine, mostly found in doctor/dentist offices throughout the State. They have always focused on the north Brandywine/Greenville area, mansions and high end eating establishments. Lately, they've included dining in Rehoboth Beach/Lewes. Seldom, Kent County is covered.

CapeGazette - Really good newspaper - lots of beach news, local and farm community news, and sports. Good police reports.

Here's another downstate favorite magazine -
OUTDOOR DELAWARE
Outdoor Delaware Magazine

Beautiful glossy photos, Bombay Hook, nature, historic sites, and hunting articles for those interested. You can read it on-line.

BTW, here's the link for DELAWARE BEACH LIFE magazine
http://www.delawarebeachlife.com/

Most newcomers think Delaware Today is our only magazine. These are other Delaware publications focusing on central and lower Delaware.

Coastal Point is a good local paper down my way. They're right on top of things and very informative--also lots of updates on Facebook.

I LOVE Outdoor Delaware! I've been a subscriber for three years now. The local pictures alone are breathtaking, and even as a lifelong Delawarean...it seems I learn/read something new every time I receive their latest magazine.

rdlr, I agree with you 100% on your take on Delaware Today magazine in that they focus mainly on New Castle Co and the beach areas. However your comment that Kent Co is seldom covered, particularly in the dining realm, is because.....there are so few restaurants worth mentioning in Kent Co! Many pages are devoted to NCCo and Sussex Co eateries but the list for Kent Co is barely more than what you would consider a long paragraph. The dining scene in Kent is very bleak with only a few bright spots. This is sad indeed for a state capital! My point in bringing this up is, not to take away from your fine listing of publications for all to consider, but rather to question why this sad state of dining in Kent Co even exists in the first place. Perhaps this could be a thread of its own???

Thank you for making a list of available publications. I encourage newcomers to look into the magazine of your choice. When I lived in faraway cold Maine, I eagerly devoured my Beach Life and online Cape Gazette info.

I so agree, Beachliz! Outdoor Delaware is my favorite! Nothing else comes close.

I think most newcomers think Delaware Today is our ONLY magazine; I see it referenced often as the magazine of choice. Truth be known, nobody I know subscribes to it. I was in a doctor's office last week and gave it another look......recipes for crispy asparagus, some upstate restaurants I couldn't afford or wouldn't want to visit, and some feature pieces on important people in Delaware I've never heard of.

Regarding Kent County lousy restaurants, you're probably right, and there was a thread started on that a couple years or so ago here on the Forum. I say "probably" because we reserve our 'eating out' to local, tried and true, seafood restaurants/taverns. They've been owned and operated for 30-40 years by "kids" we went to school with. We tend to enjoy JP's on the Wharf, The Boondocks, and Sambos. People come from all over to indulge in their freshly caught seafood. Otherwise, the area is void of really good restaurants. We've tried them all - 3 strikes and they're OUT! So, I stick with what I know....fresh Delaware seafood in Kent County.....off the boat, on the grill, and on the table.

I hate to say it but with all the info on line I seldom pick up a hard copy of any thing. The Wave and Coast Press are freebies that I might pick up if the head line looks interesting as I walk past the free pile at the supermarket.

Sounds about right!

I like Outdoor Delaware the best, but don't buy every publication. I love those freebies, too!

I was down to Long Neck last week, and it was booming! They've got some really good supermarkets, now! Can't believe how the strip centers have grown (between Sherwood Forest and the V.F.W.) And that V.F.W. is ALWAYS busy!

Smile Thanks!

Thanks for the heads-up about the other publications. I did not know about some of them and the outdoor-oriented magazine has the sort of articles I like. I read the one on Yorklyn and found it interesting. When I was young, I thought history was very boring, now I love local history. In fact, I belong to our local historical society where we archive old photos, postcards and articles about our area. Our youngest member is about 60 and oldest is 90. If younger people don't get interested in local history, the group will disappear along with us. Sad.
