Think I've ruled out Rehoboth as way too busy (and expensive) in summer. Anyone know about Milton? Thanks for any help.

I just moved to Wilmington from Baltimore, and oh my gosh, do I miss home. I am not complaining, but there are very few grocery stores in the area. Just something to get accustomed to. The Farmers Markets are not well-established, IMHO. The one closest to me has 3 vendors.

I moved to Trolley Square, which I selected based on information in this forum and on spotcrime.com, but my apartment was broken into before I had been here one month.

You may miss the conveniences of city living, which I did within a very short time of moving here. The city basically shuts down on the weekends, though there are a few things to do. Not like DC-Baltimore-Philly-New York, where you can walk to movies/museums/whatever on the weekend. The plus side of that is plenty of quiet.

I love walking Brandywine Creek in the mornings, which is a big bonus in comparison to bricks and concrete.

As my daughter describes Wilmington, this is not a city where people live - it is a city where people work.

West of Rt1 it gets less expensive and not as hectic.There is a lot there. Milton,Harbeson and the inland portions of the Lewes and Rehoboth zip codes for starters.

The city can feel like a ghost town on Summer weekends, because everyone goes to the beach. Loads of people have a beach place, especially if they are multi-generational natives and have inherited a beach house from the days that they weren't so expensive as they are now. I don't mind Wilmington clearing out on Summer weekends, but I'm middle-aged. It isn't so slow on weekends during the other three seasons of the year, however.

Default More specifics...

Okay, advice heeded! I wonder how the condo areas are on Superfine Drive (19802), that overlook the Brandywine River, and on Naamans (19810). Also, how are Hilltop and Baynard Village areas? Thanks!

Hilltop is known as a high crime area.

Naamans road in the 19810 zip code is very suburban. Where on naamans are you looking?
