I moved from to Delaware from Chambersburg, PA in 1997. The job market back then was much more robust than today. However, I have not found many other places I would rather live. Delaware offers a great selectionsof local shops, malls and restuarants. Aslo you within 1 hour and half of many of the New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland beaches. Baltimore and Philly are also within one hour drive and you can grab a train to DC and New York in Wilmington. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you want explore Delaware, I can help.
