I just wanted to add that while I made the assumption you'd be renting, if you were to decide to actually settle in DE and buy property, the Rehoboth area is absurdly expensive for anything that's not in a condo complex along the highway and that would have any character. There are some relatively affordable row houses and semi-detatched homes on the market in Trolley Square and the adjacent areas, and these definitely do have character.

West Chester. Hardly any crime, without the Philly rudeness and attitude.

I lived in Fishtown/Kensington in Philly, and I must say, I might as well have lived on a farm in Wyoming - I would have at least had a cow to talk to. People are very cliquey in Philly, and it's hard to get into a social circle if you're already grown up.

Sure there's hipster/emos,but they don't live in the cheap neighborhoods
