Benefits of Living in Delaware

Have you been thinking about packing up your current home in New York and moving to a smaller, quieter state for a new experience, a lower cost of living or simply overall peace of mind? If so, you may want to add Delaware to your shortlist of options. This small mid-Atlantic state, also known as the First State, is famed for its calm beaches and laid-back culture. If you’re hoping to move soon, you don’t have to worry about the stress of moving – simply read on to learn more about this great state you could call home and you’ll feel energized and ready to head on over.

You Can Enjoy a

New Culture While Staying Close to Home

If you want to enjoy a familiar mid-Atlantic culture with its own unique twist while staying within driving distance of friends and family in New York, Delaware might just fit the bill. As one of the mid-Atlantic states, Delaware shares a number of cultural and historical similarities with New York. This means that you won’t need to brace yourself for culture shock or undergo a serious adjustment period after making your move. You can simply arrive and begin enjoying all the First State has to offer to its residents!

Lower Delaware Taxes Could Mean

More Padding in Your Wallet

Are you a huge fan of going shopping? If so, you might be enticed by Delaware’s tax structures. Delaware is famously free of a sales tax, but also enjoys generally lower tax rates than the country at large. When compared to New York in particular, it’s clear that a move to Delaware could eventually add up to a little more padding in your wallet, especially if you enjoy indulging in a little retail therapy from time to time! If you become a Delaware resident, you could then take advantage of:

  • No sales tax across the state
  • A lower real estate tax than the national average
  • Exemptions for pension, retirement and Social Security taxes

Expect a Noticeable

Difference in Size and Population

One major difference to prepare yourself for when leaving New York for Delaware is the size difference, both in terms of physical geographical size of the two states and in terms of population. Not only is Delaware one of the smallest states in the country, it also has one of the smallest populations. By contrast, New York’s population skews towards the higher end. New York currently boasts about 19.5 million residents, whereas the population of Delaware falls just short of one million.

Spend Weekends Exploring

Delaware’s Laid-Back Beaches

Throughout the East Coast and the mid-Atlantic region, Delaware is famed for its many relaxed, family-friendly beaches. Delaware’s coastline is dotted with pleasant beach towns and picturesque locations to spend a weekend or a few weeks’ vacation. As a local, you could take advantage of Delaware’s laid-back beaches anytime! Some of the state’s top beaches to put on your must-see list include:

  • Fenwick Island State Park
  • Bethany Beach
  • Dewey Beach
  • Delaware Seashore State Park
  • Rehoboth Beach

There Are Plenty of

Fun Options for Lovers of the Outdoors

In addition to its many beaches, Delaware offers a high outdoor quality of life and many nature-centric activities to try. For those who love spending time outside enjoying the sunshine and the scenery, Delaware provides a plethora of options ranging from the rural all the way to the urban. For instance, in the course of one weekend, you could find yourself exploring:

  • Urban centers, including Dover and Wilmington
  • Charming small towns
  • The Augustine Wildlife Area
  • Bennett’s Pier
  • Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge
  • Cape Henlopen State Park

Enjoy Milder Weather Than New York And

Still Experience Four Seasons

In comparison with New York, Delaware’s weather is similar but overall a bit milder. If you love seeing the seasons change but wish you could experience a slightly shorter and warmer winter, this could be great news! Delaware has all four seasons and can sometimes see significant snowfall, but on average offers residents a more mellow winter than much of New York State. In the fall and spring, you can usually expect chilly to moderate temperatures with plenty of picturesque nature to take in. It’s important to keep in mind, however, that Delaware summers can sometimes be pretty steamy – perfect for heading to one of the state’s famous beaches to cool off!

The Delaware Economy Is Strong and Varied

Lastly, the Delaware economy, while perhaps missing an economic powerhouse comparable to New York City, remains strong, varied and largely on the upswing. Whether you’re interested in agriculture or IT, there could be job opportunities for you in Delaware. Although the local economy may depend to a certain extent on trade and collaborations with larger neighboring states, Delaware can still hold its own in several important sectors. Currently, the state’s biggest and most important industries encompass the following.

  • Information technology
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Food processing and fishing
  • Finance
  • Chemical manufacturing
  • Insurance products

If you’re thinking of making the move from the Empire State down to the First State, there are many unique cultural, economic and natural aspects of your new home state you might fall in love with. Whether you enjoy visiting laid-back beaches and other outdoor recreational options, shopping without having to worry about sales taxes or just getting to enjoy four seasons without venturing too far from New York, Delaware has a little bit of everything. Consider these top reasons to make this small but special state your new home.
