Amazing downtown, rich history, and close community! There is always something to do in Delaware. On the first Friday of each month, the downtown streets are blocked from traffic and flooded with people. Businesses can advertise while locals get snacks and catch up with old friends. The Main Street Delaware organization updates all who are interested in current events. Almost all downtown businesses are original, not chain. This adds to Delaware's charm.

I moved to Delaware county four years ago and have seen this place grow so much. This area is still quite new and is still in the process of developing, though it has everything a resident would want. It include many beautiful and safe restaurants with an amazing movie theater near by and even a mall right beside it. It could probably improve in its roads because they are quite narrow though progress in that is happening slowly but surely!
I've grown up in Delaware all my life and i've loved it. There is always a new place to explore, weather it be here in Delaware or in any of the nearby cities! Delaware is located 30 minutes north of Columbus and 2 hours south of Cleveland. The large community is always ready to support one other and make the new residents feel welcomed.
