Wilmington is Delaware’s largest and most diverse city. As such, it is the seat of New Castle County government and a hub for area employers such as Bank of America, Chase and Wilmington Trust. It boasts a vibrant legal community and thriving commercial areas. Its riverfront has been transformed into a regional destination for shopping, dining and entertainment. And its beautiful Grand Opera House, which draws top-name performers from around the world, is host to world-class local performing groups such as Delaware Symphony Orchestra and OperaDelaware. Wilmington is a city of distinct and beautiful neighborhoods: a deceptively diverse Little Italy, the stately Highlands near the Delaware Art Museum on Kentmere Parkway, turn-of-the-century Wawaset Park (modeled after a traditional English Village), The Triangle off grand Baynard Boulevard on the edge of Brandywine Park, Cool Springs-Tilton Park, and Trolley Square and Forty Acres, vibrant neighborhoods of row homes and Queen Ann architecture centered around great shopping, dining and nightlife. Wilmington is tidy and compact, but jammed with everything far larger cities can offer—and more.
