Trolley Square Reviews

2 reviews
I love that there are so many things to do and see in the Trolley area. I never tire of dining options with all of the nearby bars and restaurants, several within walking distance from my home. Nearby tennis courts and Brandywine Park also offer wonderful options to help stay active. Several gym options nearby as well.

You can't beat the location. Feels like I'm close to everything without actually being in a large city. Best nightlife spot in Wilmington. Great for a young professional. A lot of job opportunities and close enough to be able to commute to Philly, if necessary.
