Page 1 of 11

Moving to a new location can be quite thrilling, even if a bit terrifying at the same time, but doing this when you reach the retirement age can be seen as an adventure, so this time around we’re going to take a look at the 10 best places to retire in Delaware.

If moving to a new state is something you take into consideration and you’re trying to figure out where to go, then Delaware is as good as any other option. Located in the Northeast megalopolis region in the Untied States, Delaware is an interesting state, even if it’s not exactly the largest one out there. In fact, it is the second smallest state, and the sixth least populous in the entire USA. On the other hand, it’s quite densely populated, so that’s also something you should take into consideration since there’s little elbow room to go around. Some 945,000 people call Delaware home, a state that spreads over 1,982 square miles, making for a population density of 469 people per square mile.
