Kent County Reviews
Kent County is great. I live near Delaware State University and I'm right by the highway. Your open to all stores on the strip, with food places all the way down DuPont Highway. It is clean and the people here are very nice. I have been here for 5 years and It is place that I’m sticking around with for a while. Only thing that could be better is fixing Dover’s downtown because it is very small, it’s only a street basically. Besides that Kent County is a great place to live and I’m looking forward for the future of it.
There is not much to do here, but there are a few basic venues for family fun (i.e. bowling alley, movie theater, skating rink). Too many child predators per square inch, to my liking. Slow driving and nothing for police to do so drive carefully. Pay here is low and there are not many jobs so employers treat you like crap and can fire you "at will". Cost of girly things like mani/pedi's is high. Taxes are low. Home prices are low, but lose value quickly. It is a tax-free state only because they don't call it tax. You will pay more.
Kent is lovely. It is quite. There are not a lot of people. People are the worst. Kent has parks. Kent has schools. Kent has restaurants. Kent is cool.
