Del City Really Has Something for Everyone

I have lived in Del City since I was in preschool. I love the area and the small-town atmosphere is very inviting. The sense of community has been getting stronger over the last few years, and people are becoming more active in improving the community. Nightlife could use a lot of improvement and the roads are in serious need of repair, but overall it is really shaping up to be a great town.

I like that there is access to different grocery stores, which make saving money easier than if I lived in a larger town. There is also easy access to restaurants with amazing quality foods. Accessing the highway is easy, and you can find easy entrance to all of the area’s major highways, which makes travel through the state very easy.

Honestly, the only complain I have from living in Del City is that my house is only a few blocks from the local fire station so when the sirens go off for an emergency, I get woken up. However, if I lived a few blocks further away I probably wouldn’t here them.
