About the Community:
Wilmington’s status as Delaware’s largest city and economic engine gives us a big city feel while our scale and walkability preserve some small-town charm.

Our city is located 30 minutes south of Philadelphia, mid-point between New York and Washington DC. Because Wilmington is right in the middle of it all, the city boasts excellent connections to the region as well as to national and international destinations from Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), Wilmington Airport (ILG), Amtrak / SEPTA Wilmington Station (WIL), I-95, and I-495.

Rich in history, Wilmington offers a unique blend of old and new. Old Swedes Church was erected in 1698 and is still in use, and the Harriet Tubman Byway of the Underground Railroad runs right through downtown Wilmington.

On Market Street, Willingtown Square hosts several of our oldest residential structures, and Rodney Square is our central public space that honors Delaware's vote for colonial independence. The street is dotted with beautiful, historic buildings and ornate architecture brought back to life with new uses for a new age, right in the heart of the city.

Our city celebrates a diversity of cultures and lifestyles. Foodies love Wilmington’s burgeoning restaurant scene on Market Street, Union Street, and in Trolley Square. Art lovers enjoy access to Delaware Art Museum, dozens of galleries, live music venues like The Grand Opera House and Live Nation at The Queen, and the state’s premier centers for the performing arts. Outdoor enthusiasts have 552 acres of parks at their fingertips, ranging from neighborhood pocket parks to Brandywine Park’s winding trails through thick forest – there’s no better place in the state to be a runner or cyclist.

Wilmington is a city of beautiful neighborhoods, abundant housing, and affordable living. Downtown has restored brownstones and high-rise residential towers, communities in the hills offer the comfort of country living, and between the two sit dozens of rowhome neighborhoods with their own unique history and character. The Riverfront, a new district forged from a former shipyard and industry hub, is one of the city’s hottest destinations with its dynamic live-work-play environment.

More than half of all Fortune 500 companies call Wilmington their corporate home. Our city offers a dynamic environment for more than 40,000 workers and is the corporate, financial, and governmental hub of the state and region. Wilmington has some of the most promising startups in the state and some of the most celebrated new economy training programs anywhere. While our city honors the titans of industry who called Wilmington home in the past, we’re already fast at work building the next big thing.

In Wilmington, we are proud of our history and ambitious about our future. Don’t miss out on the ride.
