Located between Dover and Wilmington, Middletown, Delaware, is a town that still has that old school feel while also managing to advance itself into a very desirable locale for people looking for a new residence.

Between the years 2000 and 2010, Middletown saw an explosion in its population growth, increasing by over 200 percent. The increased population led the town to create its own police force in 2007, most of whom were hired from other police departments in the surrounding area. Along with the increased population the town also saw national food and retail chains move into the area, and open several locations around town as well along U.S. 301, adding to the convenience of living in Middletown.

Moving to Middletown

Located near the Delaware River, Blackiston Wildlife Area, Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge, and the Blackbird State Forest, Middletown has plenty for the nature lover in all of us to see and do. Middletown is also home to the private Episcopal co-ed boarding school, Saint Andrews, which focuses on providing a challenging academic experience on the grounds of a beautiful campus. Saint Andrews was also used as the location of the Robin Williams movie, Dead Poets Society. Wilmington University also has a location in the city, for those wishing to take college courses without having to commute.

With its location just across the border from Maryland and not far from New Jersey, the town often finds itself home for those looking to relocate from other states.

Finding a Middletown home

When it comes to looking for the right place to live you need to evaluate exactly what you need in a living space. Whether that be privacy, human interaction, feeling part of a community, or size of the living area you want, all things must be considered. Once you've got your priorities sorted out the next step should be to determine what type of living space you want to reside in, whether that be a rental home, a condominium, or an apartment.

The city of Middletown does offer a little extra protection for renters that most towns and cities do not: landlords must have all rental properties inspected before each new tenant. This inspection must take place after the property has been cleaned, repaired and with all utilities on and functioning. This inspection process should give any potential renters a peace of mind that they otherwise wouldn't have with rental housing in other locales.

Should you decide to search for apartments in Middletown, you'll find that there several apartment complexes scattered all about town in different areas. In the center of town are the more expensive residences, but they are also close to shopping and the main thoroughfares. Those housing units on the outskirts of town are less expensive, but not as convenient to amenities. While Middletown is comprised mostly of two story homes and townhouses, there are plenty of ranch style homes and condos as well.

Middletown is consistently rated as one of the best cities in Delaware; given its history and improvements in recent years, that seems unlikely to change anytime soon.

Life in Middletown

The town is home to three parks Charles E. Price Memorial Park, Doc Levinson Park and Silver Lake Park. Charles E. Price Memorial Park is more for the nature lovers and offers pavilions, playgrounds, walking trails, fenced areas for both large and small dogs (five acres and three acres respectively), as well as an eight acre catch and release pond for fishing and wide open fields for Frisbee and football. Silver Lake Park is home to the city's seasonal public pool, pavilions, ball fields, tennis courts, skateboarding and a track. Doc Levinson Park offers walking trails, a small pavilion, playground, basketball court and tennis court, it is also the smallest of the three parks. Middletown is also home to several annual events including the Olde Tyme Peach Festival, M.O.T. Big Ball Marathon and Hummers Parade. For those looking for green options the city offers a free recycling program in addition to trash pickup. The recycling program is a huge contribution to the greenness of the city.
