Located in northern New Castle County, Pike Creek was named as one of the “Top 100 Places to Live in the United States” by Money Magazine in 2007, the only community in Delaware to receive that designation.
The town is located just 5 miles from Newark and 10 miles from Wilmington, but is actually located closer to the state of Pennsylvania than to either of Delaware’s two largest cities.
Nestled just 2 miles from the Keystone State, Pike Creek boasts several walking and biking trails and features one of the state’s top golf courses, the Pike Creek Golf Club.
Popular attractions in Pike Creek include White Clay Creek State Park, the Carousel Park & Equestrian Center and the Middle Run Valley Natural Area.
Goldey-Beacom College is also located nearby and the University of Delaware’s main campus is just a few miles away in Newark.
As with most towns in Delaware, Pike Creek boasts several fantastic local eateries, as well as tax-free shopping and easy access to the cities of Wilmington and Philadelphia.
