In Dagsboro there are many things to do. The locations surrounding it is mostly for tourist; however, there's plenty of things to do for full time residents. There are local shopping areas that are convenient. Another thing that is also beneficial is that it's 15-20 minutes, depending on traffic, away from Bethany Beach Boardwalk and the ocean. The summer is always busy but there's always something to get involved in. Local churches also hold meetings for youth and allow anyone interested to participate. There are small beaches and parks for a family day out. All in all Dagsboro is an ideal place to live.

Dagsboro is a very scenic area and living near the beaches can be very nice. The negative is that it's a far commute to jobs and beach traffic can ruin the summer season with congested roads, accidents and longer commutes even locally.
Dagsboro is a great small town with a hometown feel, the best part is that it is close to the beach and a beautiful area.
