After living in Delaware many years, I can honestly say I have very few complaints about the city. It's a small city with a great community and plenty to do!
Delaware is just a 15 minute drive to Columbus, which is packed with fun things to do. Inside of Delaware you can find plenty of family-friendly activities. Alum Creek State Park, Olengtangy Indian Caverns, and Alum Creek Lake are just a few of the fun things to do. Shopping in Delaware is not non-existent, but a better bet is to head over to Columbus for some good shopping experiences.
Delaware is also home to numerous delicious restaurants, ranging from bistros to chine food. If you are more into the night life scene, Delaware's got you covered. Bars, bowling alleys, and pubs are all available in Delaware.
Housing is incredibly easy to come by in Delaware. There are plenty of affordable house, under 300,000 dollars, that are a good size and in a good neighborhood.
