Benefits of Living in Delaware

While there are similarities between New Jersey and Delaware, the second is generally considered to be more affordable, more rural in some areas, and less crowded. As you prepare to make your long-distance move, here are essential snippets of information you’ll want to take with you on the trip.

#1

You’ll Never Be Far From Home

If you’re leaving the nest for the first time, you won’t have to worry about traveling too far from home. New Jersey and Delaware are neighbors, and you can get to most places in New Jersey from anywhere in Delaware in about two hours or less. This is great news if you’re prone to homesickness and have family in New Jersey you like to visit.

Also, here’s a fun fact: A part of Delaware is actually located inside New Jersey on the other side of the Delaware River. This resulted due to an old legal agreement between William Penn and King Charles II. Degradation and changes to the geography around the river resulted in what is called the Killcohook site. The arrangement plagues law officials in New Jersey today as the area has become a popular spot for crime since the land technically falls under Delaware’s jurisdiction.

#2

It’s Even Smaller Than New Jersey

New Jersey is the fourth-smallest state in the US with a total area of 7,419 square miles, but Delaware is even smaller. It is the second-smallest state in the country and is about a fourth of the size of New Jersey at 1,954 square miles. While Delaware is still more densely populated than most states in the US, it has about 506 people every square mile compared to over 1,200 every square mile in New Jersey. While it may not be night and day, the extra breathing room is sure to be appreciated.

#3

World-Class Internet Speeds

Delaware has the second-highest internet speeds in the US, coming only second to Maryland. However, you’re likely already used to never having to wait for your videos to buffer or for files to download in New Jersey. While New Jersey actually ranked just above Delaware in 2019 for average internet speed, it dropped to third place in 2020.

#4

A Cyclist’s and Disc Golfer’s Delight

While you may have enjoyed a regular game of golf in New Jersey, disc golf is a bit of a novelty in Delaware. You’ve likely already heard of disc golf in New Jersey, which is a sport that involves throwing a plastic disc into a basket in the fewest number of attempts possible. There are seven Delaware State Parks that feature 18-hole disc golf courses to be enjoyed by the public.

Delaware is also a top spot for cyclists. With a beautiful coastline to explore, cyclists of all levels enjoy seeing the state on two wheels. It has ranked as one of the most bike-friendly states in the nation several times by the League of American Bicyclists. Several laws and regulations are in place to make biking a safer activity, including the Bicycle Friendly Delaware Act passed in 2017.

#5

Say Goodbye to Sales Tax

New Jersey is not very friendly when it comes to state taxes, a disadvantage most residents come to accept overtime. However, Delaware does not require either a state or local sales tax — a huge plus for consumers! This is great news if you plan to spend a significant amount of time in the state’s many shopping malls. If you’re a business owner you will have to factor in the state’s gross receipts tax.

#6

Retire in Comfort and Style

If you’re looking for a great location to eventually retire in, Delaware is a great choice. This is partly due to the lack of state taxes and other tax benefits for retirees, including exclusion from state income taxes for up to $12,500 from sources of retirement income and a $2,500 standard deduction for people over 65.

The area is also home to many great senior living communities, and there are several great hospitals The amenities Delaware has to offer can accommodate the interests of many seniors, including activities outdoors, history to discover, and arts and shows to experience.

#7

New Coasts To Explore

If one of your favorite parts about New Jersey is the beautiful beach views, you won’t have to miss out on much when you move to Delaware. All three counties in the state have access to coastlines, and there are more than 15 major beaches.

Enjoy swimming in the Atlantic Ocean at top spots such as Cape Henlopen State Park, Delaware Seashore State Park, and Fenwick Island State Park. You can find people swimming or enjoying water sports in the summer, spring, or fall as Delaware’s climate is typically warm.

If spending a day at one of New Jersey’s many boardwalks was a family favorite, Delaware is also home to several fun boardwalks, with games, soft serve, ocean views, and fun amusement rides.

Moving from one state to another, even if they are neighbors, takes perfect planning and execution. If you’re looking for a dependable, honest long-distance moving company that can take the hassle out of the moving experience, contact White Glove Moving for a quote today.
