It is convenient to shopping and restaurants. It's access to I-95 makes getting to locations in N. Wilmington, Newark, Bear, and even Philadelphia very easy! The area has low crime so I feel safe.

I really like this area. The community is safe and people are fairly kind. I think I would live in this area again if I had a chance because of the great memories I have had growing up here. I think in the future this community will remain consistent with its values and welcoming nature but the education in this area has seen a recent decline. Right now the community is changing schools and districts so it can be hard to focus in over crowd schools or schools with new teachers and students. However once the districts settle back down, I think education will see an improvement
Where I live there are many local businesses, both shops and restaurants. My favorite store in the area is the Delaware Running Company. They sell everything running related, from shoes and socks to shirts and shorts. The people who work there are friendly and very knowledgeable when it comes to their products. On top of that, they are active runners in the community. If you ever needed advice on where to run, upcoming events, or needed a running group to train with, the Delaware Running Company is there to help.

A favorite restaurant of mine is Two Cousins. It is in the middle of Hockessin, DE. Two Cousins is a very casual Italian restaurant, but their food is delicious. You walk in to the counter, order off the menu, and then the waiter or waitress will bring you your food. Two Cousins does not need a five star restaurant appeal because its food and atmosphere are already plenty great. It is also a nice place to simply hangout with some friends.
