Seaford is a small but quickly-up coming town in Delaware. The small local businesses around the area are great, and I am always happy to support them. I really wish Seaford had more entertainment options, especially for the youth and young adults; these types of functions would help to reduce crime and drug abuse rates!

I have lived here for 17 years and I love it. The town is slowly growing. New businesses are coming to this town. When people say “oh you live in Seaford”, I say, ok and? This town is growing, the past moths, they remodeled and put up a new McDonald’s. A Starbucks is up and running. Wawa and Chick-fil-a is coming really soon to this town.
Seaford is a small town that doesn't have much to do regarding recreation, and there are certainly neighborhoods that I would be careful in, but there are plenty of nice, quiet neighborhoods with friendly neighbors. It would be nice if we still had a bowling alley or something like that, as there isn't much to do aside from eating or going to a park.
