Relocate to Greater Wilmington, Delaware

Delaware is small, friendly and affordable. Whether you’re a young professional looking for a career change, a family in search of a new home or a business owner looking to expand, we’re the perfect place to land.

Even Wilmington, our biggest city, is a good deal. Its cost of living is slightly below the national average — a remarkable fact for an East Coast hub. At the same time, we’re right on I-95 and within easy driving distance of Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and New York. In fact, more than a third of the nation's population lives only a half day's drive away. More than 80 trains, including Amtrak's high-speed Acela Express, stop at the Wilmington station every day, and Philadelphia International Airport is 25 minutes from downtown.

Did we mention there’s no sales tax in Delaware? That means all your shopping — from grocery staples to boutique sprees — is approximately 6% cheaper than most other places in the U.S.

Delaware is business-friendly too: more than two-thirds of Fortune 500 companies are incorporated in Delaware. Groundbreaking scientific research is underway at local research centers, downtown Wilmington has a thriving startup scene, and regional medical care ranks among the nation's best.
