By the same token, if you could live in small town PA or upstate NY, you might be quite happy in Wilmington and its burbs.

In one word "Yes".

Only the boring get bored.

If you get bored in Delaware, or any state for that matter, it is because you are a boring person.

It depends on where you choose to reside. Personally, I like Northern DE because you have big city advantages without the big city hassles.

NYC, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Baltimore, Washington, DC all within two hours, by car, quicker by train. Within the same range you also have the Brandywine Valley, Jersey & Delaware beach resorts, the Chesapeake Bay, Poconos, a multitude of sports, music and performance venues and a very good and diverse grassroots-type of community up and down the state.

Yeah, if you are worried that this area is boring, you probably need to go somewhere else.

"Only the boring get bored." Irish, according to your own reasoning then, you shouldn't really have to do all that traveling to cities, should you?

I'd think that you'd do just fine right where you're planted. Don't move a muscle.

Thanks Anniebleu -- I did want to point out that the post seemed to underscore the necessity of leaving Wilmington in order to have fun, but didn't feel like taking the trouble to post. It does seem a bit of a contradiction.

I'm in central DE and as happy a clam. Never bored. I'm retired, living and loving life. DH and I get involved in activities, have a ton of friends and take fun day trips. Thurs we are going on a cruise to Tangier Island.
We love to ride to the beach, casino and need to explore the museums.
Dover Downs has great shows for a small fee.
Hubby went to see boxing the other week.
Depends what you like. These are big band shows.
There is always always always something.
Sometimes I just want a day to do nothing. LOL!!
Your as happy as you make your minds to be. Just being alive and healthy makes me happy.

I think there's a lot of truth to that, elizamary, but I guess I was guessing that the OP is a young single, in which case I'm not sure that DE is the very best place to move unless maybe it's far a career-building job that pays good bucks and might be a stepping stone along the way.

I definatel agree Dr Jeff. It doesn't seem like a state for the young and single. But then again I was not raised here.
I was raised in a hick town outside Philly. We used to go in Philly for that was where the action was.

Delaware is like anywhere else it is as boring or as interesting as you want to make it. There is plenty to do and see if people would take the time to discover them.

Agreed. As a young adult, I could not wait to leave my small town in Delaware. Twenty some years later, I was eager to settle down in a similar small town in Pennsylvania. My daughter is moving to NYC this fall. I'm hoping she will move back here before twenty years.
