Money Magazine is well-known for its annual list of the Best Places to Live, and this year’s list highlights the very best town in each state.  The magazine scours areas based on the public school system, economic stability, convenience, safety, and access to parks, restaurants, and shops.

This year, Hockessin was named the most desirable place to live in Delaware.  The popular magazine praised the New Castle County neighborhood for its easy commute to Wilmington and Newark, family-friendly vibe, and historic homes.
