Millsboro Captures Old Fashioned Values
As much as we love the bright lights, and vibrant energy of the big city, it’s the simple, small-town ambiance many of us associate with “home.” One Delaware city has the best of both worlds, being close enough to the action, yet still retains that Ozzie & Harriet sense of community. Rural, and progressive, Millsboro is a small gem of a town that everyone needs to know about. It’s one of those places you can pop into the hardware store or the grocery market, and people know you by name versus just one in a crowd. It’s a quiet city, but the locals consider it an ideal place to put down roots.
Founded in 1792, Millsboro’s agricultural industry thrived for more than century and continues to be a major economic contributor to this day. This Sussex County charmer is located in Rehoboth Beach and Ocean City, Maryland with U.S Route 113 providing easy access to all the cities in between. Boasting no sales tax, low property taxes, and overall affordability, it comes as no surprise Millsboro is a fantastic destination for boomers and retirees. For someone seeking an exciting all-inclusive lifestyle, the 55+ community of Independence by Schell Brothers is just one of the many reasons why active adults love living here. With a 24,000 square foot clubhouse, exciting amenities, and lively happy hours, this community is a prime example of the quality of life that awaits in Millsboro.
Millsboro celebrates its cultural heritage through colorful festivals, and events including the Nanticoke Powwow that captures the traditions, and rich history of the native Nanticoke Tribe, and the annual Boro Bash that brings families together for some lively down-home entertainment. Delaware was named the third most bike-friendly state in the country by bikeleague.org and has an affinity for the great outdoors. From golf venues including the Plantation Lakes Golf and Country Club, and scenic state parks, to waterfront recreation at Indian River Marina in nearby Rehoboth Beach, active living is second nature. Millsboro’s population is fast-growing, but it still maintains a quaint hometown vibe with unique shopping, historic museums, and opportunities for artistic expression at the Millsboro Art League. Foodies, history buffs, and coastal dreamers will find their niche in this dynamic little town who’s idyllic central location welcomes active adults to experience a taste of nostalgia.
