Pike Creek

Long a destination for families in search of suburban convenience with a bucolic feel, Pike Creek offers the entire gamut of housing at a range of prices. Shopping and dining centers mainly on Limestone Road. Proximity to big parks like Middle Run and White Clay Creek keeps the active set outdoors. Newark and Wilmington are equally accessible. If you’re shopping, mind where you look. The area is split between good schools in the Red Clay district and some poor performers in the Christina district.
