Delaware City

Longtime residents speak with pride, which is evident during the annual Delaware City Days, a music festival and car shows. The town wins points for walkability and historic, small-town charm, even if some of the older Federalist-style housing needs a little TLC. Battery Park offers stunning views of the Delaware River. The marina gets boaters on the water post haste. Culture points come from Fort Delaware on Pea Patch Island. Subtract a few points for PBF Energy’s refinery (700+ jobs: good—environmental issues: bad). Add points for an effort to attract artists and small businesses. Kathy’s Crab House and Crabby Dick’s restaurant celebrate everyone’s favorite crustacean.
