Homes for sale in Wilmington DE: conveniently situated
Wilmington is uniquely situated between major metropolitan hubs—it is 100 miles from New York City and Washington, with easy access to major arteries like I-495, I-95, and the New Jersey Turnpike. Wilmington is less than a half-hour drive to Philadelphia, 90 minutes to Atlantic City, an hour to Amish Country in and around Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and less than 2 hours to Delaware’s famous Atlantic Ocean beaches at Bethany, Dewey, and Rehoboth.
With the revitalization of the Christina Riverfront in downtown Wilmington, however, you may never want to stray far from home. On any given day you can zip around in a water taxi, or take a leisurely stroll down the landscaped walkway along the water’s edge. Meanwhile, the Riverfront Market offers a bounty of gourmet and specialty foods, fresh and organic produce, flowers, and more. Baseball fans can catch the major league stars of tomorrow at Frawley Stadium, home of the Wilmington Blue Rocks. Those who prefer a night out filled with cutting-edge cuisine and local beers and wines can try the hand-crafted pizza at FireStone, local brews at Iron Hill Brewery, or Asian fusion at Kooma.
