Crime is up in many areas of Delaware right now, there's not much that can help that. Police are doing all that they can do, however, where I live, the police stations are pretty far away. So, the area gets hit with a lot of shoplifters.
The area is great for summertime get away. There's plenty of beaches to vist more then enough different places to go eat at. In the winter and off season it is one of the most beautiful places. There's plenty of wooded areas which are beautiful once the leaves start to change color.
