Why Live in Delaware

The Delaware beach area is one of the hottest areas in the country for retirees or those planning to retire—and it’s no wonder! Delaware coastal communities offer a diverse range of amenities from birdwatching, golfing, sailing and fishing to museums, cultural events and ample shopping including one of the region’s largest outlet centers.

Millville By The Sea is simply the best new home community for retirees and those considering retirement in Delaware. The community is not an age-restricted community, which eliminates any limitations on the resale market to homebuyers 55 years and older.

Millville By The Sea is perfectly situated four miles to the surf and sand of Bethany Beach, Delaware. The community boasts world-class amenities, as well as quick access to three area public golf courses—all within a five-mile radius.
