With the introduction of the railroad and the industrial age, Delaware City’s draw as center of commerce waned but its appeal as a residential area remained.

A blacksmith’s shop is still in operation and a popular crab house occupies an historic inn. Views of the Delaware River, Pea Patch Island and the New Jersey shore can be seen from the park at the foot of Clinton Street, Delaware City’s main street.
Delaware City serves as a portal to many local attractions such as Fort Delaware State Park, Fort DuPont, Battery Park, and the Delaware Estuary Marshes. Residents & visitors can take advantage of the many site-seeing & recreational opportunities around this quaint town as well as spend a leisurely time enjoying the shopping & dining the downtown area has to offer.
