The city of Newark, Delaware is one of the more well-known cities in the state of Delaware. Much of the appeal of the area is thanks to all of the outdoor space available for public enjoyment. In fact, there are over 11,000 square acres of natural parks and outdoor recreational areas.

Schools have also been a large part of Newark’s history. A small grammar school that was relocated form London in the late Eighteenth century evolved to come the Newark academy. Then, a while after its founding, the school joined with Newark college to form the University of Delaware

Several large interstates pass through the city as well. Interstate 95 is the most popular highway used in the area. White Clay Creek State park is one such park. This is the most widely visited tourist destination in all of Newark. However, nearly all parks in the area offer more than enough space to go for a run, walk, bike ride, horseback ride, and pretty much anything else you can think to do in the wonderful outdoors.

The Christiania mall is one of the more popular shopping malls in the area, offering a great shopping experience that is easy to access from all over the city. As you may or may not know, all of Delaware operates tax free! That means that whatever you buy, whether it be a car or a cell phone, will not have sales tax that you have to pay. Sounds great, right?

Newark is also home to a world renowned figure-skating team. Most sports come from the University of Delaware, which has active teams for over 19 different sports.

Newark is a classic example of why people fall in love with Delaware the second they step onto the green ground, or into one of the many welcoming communities that make it such a great place to live!
