Pike Creek is probably the most elite suburb in Delaware after Hockessin. It is pretty safe, and people seem friendly as well. You can see many people walking on sides during sunny days. It is calm and relaxing because it is not overcrowded. The place itself is one of the highest places in Delaware and it is surrounded with big trees. It seems like a family friendly place, you can see a lot of families living in this area. The commute time is pretty good because it is close to many good places. Philadelphia, Elkton, Wilmington, Newark are not too far away. If you are a University of Delaware student, Pike Creek may be a good option for you. Apart from all these things, Pike Creek is somewhat expensive. It may be hard finding a home with a good price in this area. Shopping centers are same as well but you can still search for better prices in this state.

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.
Pike Creek is a very safe environment with plenty of restaurants, activities and beautiful wildlife.
