Wilmington

On the downside, the only high schools in the city are charters, so your child is getting bused to the burbs, which, given the high taxes, doesn’t seem fair, especially if the busing is to a school in a sub-par district. On the upside—and it is a large one—you have a choice of beautiful neighborhoods like The Highlands, the enclave of Midtown Brandywine, the ever-popular Trolley Square and the tight-knit Triangle. The downtown and Riverfront can supply all your entertainment needs, from symphony to The Grand Opera House to live modern music at The World Cafe Live at the Queen to movies and IMAX at Penn Cinemas. How many cities of comparable size have a major art museum, a contemporary art center, and so many opera, theater and dance companies? Need we mention dining options from tiny Caribbean joints to the continental splendor of The Green Room? Yes, some neighborhoods need help, but you live in the employment and commercial center of the state, there are several beautiful parks and a burgeoning riverfront, and there are all the festivals and other public celebrations you could ever ask for.
