Discover the Neighborhoods
of Greater Wilmington, DE

From hip urban enclaves to the country hamlets tucked away on the quiet roads of the Brandywine Valley chateau country, each town, city and neighborhood in the Greater Wilmington and Brandywine region is made unique by its people, its businesses and its history.

Head down Market Street away from the towering buildings of Wilmington's downtown banking center and you'll find yourself in LoMa (Lower Market), a more casual neighborhood that's become a destination for Delaware's marketing, design and creative types. The Wilmington Riverfront bustles with business during the day and its residents population at night, while Trolley Square comes alive on weekends (and many weeknights as well) with a vibrant bar and restaurant scene.

Outside of the city, the river towns of Historic New Castle and Delaware City abound with local history and restored properties. There's really nothing like the small-town tongue-in-cheek charm of Middletown's Hummer's Parade, while the historic homes of Odessa tell stories of the past year round and glow with a festive spirit during the holiday season. Newark's main street is everything a college town should be, with cool coffee bars, small independent shops and an eclectic dining scene.
