Wilmington, Delaware: Or Nothing Like Philly

It's been almost a year since I posted.  I'm sure that you've all missed me! And now I must make my announcement!......  I've cured cancer!*

*(I didn't. But you can imagine what it would be like if I did)

Actually, I moved to Wilmington, Delaware.  That's right - I'm no longer a resident of Philadelphia but it is only a short 40 minute drive away! (Too bad that I hate to drive). But dry your tears! I will still post about Philly and now, as an added bonus, at no extra cost, Delaware!

  • Wilmington is  - as I already mentioned - close to Philadelphia! And Baltimore! And sort of - Washington, D.C.
  • TAX FREE!!!! That's right mo-fos - no tax on food! Or drink! Or clothes! Or Amazon deliveries! And all sorts of other stuff!
  • Parking doesn't cost a fortune! I can park in front of my residence - FOR FREE!
  • Car State Inspection - FREE! Are you sensing a trend?
  • It has the Riverfront.  It's very pretty and there are restaurants and a new IMAX theater.

  • No Whole Foods (yeah, yeah, yeah, First World Problems)
  • The city motto is kind of lame.  But I'll let you decide. 
  • The Restaurants cannot compare to Philly - and we have really really tried to find great ones (We will settle for just good at this point)
  • It's not Philly
  • I love Philly. I always will but it is nice to have a change.
  • I like having a yard
  • We also have a connection to William Penn! New Castle, Delaware was once part of Pennsylvania.

  • There is a SEPTA train from Philly to Wilmington so you don't need to have a car to get here! (HINT HINT)
