A boring hometown to grow up in, that consists about 3 neighborhoods, a few small stores, and a police force of 3 officers.

The stores around here are very old and commercial businesses. There is nothing new, trendy, or different.
Delaware isn't that great to be honest. Firefly and Nascar are probably the most exciting events in this state.
