Small-Town Charm Just Outside Dover, Delaware
Camden, Delaware is my hometown, and I still love its small-town charm. Since 2000, the population of Camden has almost doubled, yet the town only has a little over 3,500 residents today. It’s truly a quintessential New England bedroom community.
Wyoming, Delaware is our neighboring community that together with Camden creates the perfect place to call home. Located right outside of Dover, Camden-Wyoming offers a great alternative for residents that work in our state’s capital or at Dover Airforce Base. In fact, many of our residents commute outside of the Camden-Wyoming area for work each day.
Camden Historic District
The Camden Historic District is a United States national historic district. The historic district has many buildings that date back to the late 1700’s and 1800’s. In fact, if you love historic homes, Camden’s historic district is a great choice for your next home.
I’m proud to have contributed to the Caesar Rodney School Project that built the playset at Brecknock Park. The park is a great asset for our community. This is a space for people to get outside, play, picnic and gather.
Not only does the park have the play structure, but it also has open space for sports and other activities. Another feature is a small garden area to enjoy marked plants and trees. Brecknock Park also has walking paths and trails. Overall, this location adds to the value and experience of living in Camden.
Another appealing spot is Wyoming Park located on the banks of the Wyoming Pond. This local outdoor space is great to let the kids play on the playground or for a fun family picnic. The park has a large pavilion perfect for events like reunions, wedding and birthday parties. Grills located at the park make it even more convenient to entertain.
Food and Lodging
Camden and Wyoming offer many dining choices perfect for busy families. One of my favorites is Hall’s Family Restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. This family friendly local joint matches the charm of our town. Other choices for a bite to eat are Sal’s Pizza, Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen and China Taste.
Also, the convenient Camden Wyoming Market, formerly known as Witt Brother’s, has offered quality products for over 40 years.
Don’t forget to stop by Tre Sorelle Dolce for dessert. They offer hand-dipped ice cream and Italian ice. This local favorite has quality products and top-notch service.
The Rose Tower Bed and Breakfast is located in the historic district. If you are considering making Camden your home, book one of the three guest rooms to get a genuine feel for life in Camden.
Our farming community is a key part of life in this area. Fifer’s Orchard is a fourth-generation family farm producing quality fruits and vegetables. They offer local farmer’s markets and CSAs. Fifer’s hosts events year-round including seasonal festivals like the Strawberry Festival, Fall Fest and Cider Fest.
The local farming community adds to the small-town appeal and simple way of life we love about Camden and Wyoming. Not only that, it offers entertainment, great food, and education for our community.
Caesar Rodney School District
We all know that local schools are important to homebuyers. Thankfully, the Camden and Wyoming areas are supported by the Caesar Rodney School District. This top-ranked district values education, community involvement and quality of life for both staff and students.
